Ruth Williams, daughter of Bertha and Billie Williams, of Louisville, Ky, died June 15 at age 62 at Hope Hospice in Ft. Myers, Florida where she had lived for many years. She leaves behind a sister, Marsha, and two brothers, Mark and Stuart. She also leaves many friends, the making of which was one of her great gifts. She was an athlete from her high school days until she finally left teaching to work for Hertz. She was a devoted coach from the time she left the University of Kentucky with her Master’s Degree in P.E., golf clubs in hand. Primarily, she coached tennis and volley ball, but she said she once coached archery with a broken left arm. She had an infectious smile and was always ready for a new friendship, which made her a valued asset in the airport car rental business. Passengers who arrived at night were often amazed to be given special treatment when they were tired from traveling. She especially loved fishing, enjoying herself whether she caught anything or not. She requested there be no formal service, but donations may be made to Hope Hospice in Fort Myers, Florida.
