Heeding her Creator’s call, Ruth Perry Sampson went to her Eternal Home on November 12, 2019. Ruth was born at home on The Old Perry Farm in Platte County, two miles north of Platte City, MO, to Bennie & Anna Ellen (Hunt) Perry on August 3, 1945. Ruth attended Tracy School for two years, then graduated from Platte County R3 High School, class of 1963. Ruth received her BA in 1979 from UMKC, and attended one year of law school. Ruth worked at Platte County Library, then Folgers Coffee in Kansas City, MO, Southern Federal Savings & Loan of Broward County in Light House Point, FL, Bellas Hess in North Kansas City, MO, Mid Continent Public Library, and Platte Senior Services, Inc. She met John Elisha Sampson and they were married June 13, 1966. John preceded Ruth in death on April 21, 2011. Also preceding her in death are her beloved parents and siblings. Ruth is survived by her sister May Perry-Daulton Garcia and many friends. Ruth’s favorite bible verse was Joshua 1:9, and she was active in the Tracy Baptist Church, Calvary Baptist Church in Kansas City, MO, Woodland Baptist Church, First Baptist Church of Platte City, Nashua Baptist Church, United Methodist Church of Platte City, and First Christian Church of Platte City. Ruth was a singer of Sacred Songs and wrote her own songs. She had what she called a mini-ministry, calling those having a birthday or anniversary and singing an old hymn. She touched a lot of lives with her songs. John & Ruth were Grandpa John & Grandma Ruth for the Adventure Club Reading Program for a time. Ruth will be missed. A visitation will be held Saturday, November 16, 2019 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm at Rollins Funeral Home in Platte City. She will be laid to rest beside her beloved husband at a private interment in Pleasant Ridge Cemetery in Weston, MO. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to a church of your choice.

Ruth was a friend I met working for our dear friend Jack Swaney. She always sent wonderful cards to me and my family even after leaving Platte City and moving to Colorado. She was a sweet caring soul. Love, Carol Gair

Ruthy's memory leaves no doubt - that she loved The Lord Jesus Christ.  Ruth suffered the debilitating effects of Parkinson's disease.  A few years ago, we all marveled at her volunteering for Darrell Willson's "Changing Hearts Crusade" Choir.  While others were standing, Ruth sang her heart out while Christie Coffer turned the pages - unforgettable!  Ruth's devoted sister - May Perry-Daulton Garcia continued caring  for Ruth's needs although in far off in Texas.  Finally, many FCCPC Members will recall Ruth's warm comments at Sunday Service invitations, "Are there any joys to share this morning?" We've been blessed knowing this very special lady.  God bless,    David Olsen,   Platte City
