Ruth Green

March 17, 1953 — September 5, 2022

The Royalty Queen was born on March 17, 1953, in Lawson, AR, to the late Malcom & Maragret King. The Lord called his Angel home on September 5, 2022, at Baptist Hospital in Little Rock, AR.

Ruth accepted Christ at an early age when she became a member of Mt. Zion Missionary Baptist Church #2 in Urbana, AR. The Queen served faithfully in the church until her health failed. She sang in the church until her health failed. Ruth sang in and directed the choir and was a Sunday school teacher and secretary. She also taught vacation bible school and was over the Easter program; whatever you asked her to do, she did it.

She was known by several nicknames, fast fanny, May West, Sweeten, and Short and Sassy.

The Queen had a personality that could light up any dark room with that sparkling smile. Ruth enjoyed cooking, singing, fishing, cleaning homes, working crossword puzzles, playing candy crush, spending time with her family, and watching Young & the Restless at 11:00 a.m. Monday- Friday. She loved to worship and give God a Hallelujah Praise.

The Queen was the chef in the family; when you asked her to cook a dish, she would come with a whole feast. She wanted to make sure everybody had enough to eat and got full. Some of her popular requests were the Million Dollar pound cake, chicken spaghetti, macaroni and cheese, dressing, & mashed potatoes, and so much more.

She would always call bright and early for everyone's Birthday; sometimes, she would be the first one to call, or her niece Connie King would be the first to call. Sometimes they would be minutes apart calling.

Ruth was employed by Abe's Ole Feed house, where she served as a head cook for many years. She worked at Conagra on the big line for many years. Ruth worked at Walmart in the deli. Ruth was employed at Prescolite for many years. The Queen was employed by Dixie Maintenance, where she worked for Simmons bank branch in Strong, AR, until her death.

The Simmons staff loved how Mrs. Ruth cleaned and made them laugh.

Queen Ruth became married to her first love Earnest Lee (Bo) Frazier, in 1970. Three beautiful children were born during their marriage, Bernice, Ellis, & Amelia. They remained married until Bo's death in 1988; they were married for 18 years.

Ruth attended Gardner High School, where she played basketball and ran track.

Ruth married in 2004 to the one-of-a-kind, amazing, God-sent O.B. Green of Strong, AR; their first meet and greet was at her home in Camden, AR. O.B. was late to a church service, trying to meet his Queen for the first time. Everyone knew the love they shared and had for one another. She remained married to her last love for 18 years until her death.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Malcom and Maragret King, six brothers, and two sisters.

The Queen leaves her Royalty Legacy and memories to her Knight and Shining husband, O.B. Green of Strong, AR, and three beautiful children Bernice Cross (Michael) of Hampton, AR, Ellis Frazier (Pat) of Yukon, Oklahoma, and Amelia Reed (Phillip) of Irving, TX. Three grandchildren, Brandon Broadnax of Pine Bluff, AR, Jakeyden Boone of Irving, TX, and Paniya Reed of Magnolia, AR, four brothers Sammuel King (Nettie), Russell King (Helen), Frank King, all of Lawson, AR and Donald King (Ida) of El Dorado, AR, and a host of grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, family, and friends. Stepkids Sheryln Lovett of El Dorado, AR,  and Shamaski Green of Elmwood, GA  Ruth adopted many God daughters over the years, Shakeyta Williams for over 30 years, and Sharisse Burton was the newest addition to the family a couple of years ago.
