Ruth Hall Ketchie, age 91, of Salisbury, passed away gently in her sleep at home with family by her side on April 1, 2021.
She was born March 1, 1930 in Newton NC as the only child of Viola and Edward Hall. She spent her career as a final inspector for several textile companies, retiring at the age of 62; but a year later, she took advantage of an opportunity offered her at Collins and Aikman. She resumed her career as a final inspector until her last retirement at age 66.
She is survived by her loving and caring husband of 72 years, Everette Ketchie, whom she adored. In addition, she is survived by her only son Garry Ketchie and wife Gail of Hickory NC; her only grandson Derek Ketchie, wife Leigh, and great-granddaughters Caroline and Juliet of Charlotte NC.
Service: The immediate family will have a private graveside celebration at a later date, but wishes to thank everyone for their expressions of kindness, friendship and love given to her throughout her lifetime.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Novant Health Hospice of Salisbury for their respectful and loving care.
