Ruby Inez Wolf, 80, of Van Buren, Ark. (formerly of Fayetteville, Ark) passed away peacefully in her sleep and entered into eternal rest on Sunday, Aug. 11, 2013, in Fort Smith. She was born in June 13, 1933, in Brinkley, Ark. to the late Andrew J. and Martha Louise Terry.

She was preceded in death by her husband, John O. Wolf; and her mother and father.

Ruby was a Southern Baptist and longtime member of University Baptist Church in Fayetteville, Ark. She was a retired Mary Kay beauty consultant and was very accomplished in her profession, earning a car from the company.

A proud and loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, aunt and cousin, Ruby loved her extended family very much. She was an outstanding cook and loved to host large dinners for her family and her "secret recipe" for frying catfish was the envy of all. She loved to sing, fish and travel as well as crocheting and other arts and crafts.

Ruby was a patriot who loved our country very much and was especially proud of her son's decades of military service in the U.S. Army Special Forces.

Ruby is survived by her son, Master Sgt. (Ret.) Ronald J. Smith and wife, Tammy, of St Joseph, Mo.; daughter, Sandra K. Sapp and husband, Daniel, of Fort Smith; daughter, Pamela R.
