Obituary22 March 192922 March 1929, Newport, Newport County, Rhode Island, Newport Mercury Obituary:. The death at an early hour Monday morning of Mrs. Ruth Smith Ward, widow of Charles H. Ward, at her home on Turner's road, Middletown, was not unexpected, as a serious heart trouble had developed early last week and was followed by a shock Thursday night which left her unconscious. She had been confined to her room for the past three years, although she had been up each day as a general thing until within a week.

In 1917 after the marriage of her son, he and his wife came to live with her and has since conducted the homestead, more specially after the elder Mrs. Ward's health began to fail.

The deceased was a native of Middletown, where she had always lived, having been born on Bliss road, June 18, 1853. She was the youngest of three children of Daniel B. and Maria (Brown) Smith. Her sister, Mrs. Lydia B. Chase, and her brother Isaac Smith, both of whom had lived next door, died several years ago. In 1875 she married Charles H. Ward, who for many years was Middletown's town treasurer. Mr. Ward died 17 years ago.

The deceased was a member of the Methodist Episcopal Church, belonged for many years to the Ladies' Aid of that church, to Aquidneck Grange, and formerly for years of the Paradise Reading Club. Failing health in recent years had caused her to give up participation in these organizations.

Mrs. Ward came to her present home when she was six years old and had resided there ever since. Her father and mother and their family were always largely identified with the Methodist Church at the Four Corners as the upper portion of the Smith homestead on Turner's road was used as the church parsonage previous to the erection of the present parsonage.

Mrs. Ward is survived by a daughter, Grace (Mrs. Joseph E. Farnum of East Providence); and by a son, Mr. Clifton B. Ward, a former town treasurer. She leaves also four grandchildren, several nephews and many nieces.

[Below the obituary is a letter from C. A. Manchester, to the Editor:]
Another old friend has gone and finished the weary race. Many will realize the loss of a true friend in the passing of Mrs. Ruth M. Ward. Although a "shut-in" for some years, she was always cheerful, never complained, enjoyed living and the company of her friends, both young and old. She believed
"Life is pleasant.
Greet it with a smile.
Friends are treasures.
Keep them all the while."

Born in Middletown more than 75 years ago, she had spent her entire life here. For all those years she had been an active member of the Methodist Church, taking a lively interest in all its work, as long as able. The former ministers of the church now living can recall many kindnesses received from her. She was of the "old school," devoted to her home and family, ever having their welfare at heart.

Her husband, Mr. Charles Ward, died several years ago. She leaves two children, Mr. Clifton B. Ward of Middletown and Mrs. Grace Farnum of Providence; also several grandchildren. There will ever remain with them a pleasant recollecitno of a kind and loving mother.

Upon obtaining his Bachelor's degree and completing the Navy ROTC program at Tulane University, he was commissioned and served on a small combatant in the North Atlantic that was part of our Country's Distant Early Warning Line. While serving in the Navy, he met and married the mother of his two children, Alice Irish, of Newport, Rhode Island, who contributed so significantly to his life until her death in early January, 1993.

Following his military service, he attended law school at the University of Mississippi and, later, received an advanced degree in law from Yale University. After practicing law and being active in management of small businesses, he joined the faculty of the University of Florida's College of Law in 1969 where he taught commercial law courses and seminars until his retirement in 2003. In addition to authoring books and articles, he gave continuing legal education lectures to lawyers in Florida. He was a visiting professor at law schools in California, Texas, Poland and South Africa. His principal collateral duties in legal education consisted of chairing UF Law's Admissions Committee for many years and serving as a member of the Test Question Review Committee of the Law School Admissions Council. He served on the Board of Directors of Campus USA Credit Union for over 40 years, chairing that Board several times during his tenure.

He is survived by his wife, Jeanne Moberly, who, since their marriage in December of 1996, has been a loving and generous partner and a devoted grandmother to their six grandchildren. He leaves two children, Becki O'Connor and Stephen Williams; a son-in-law, Michael O'Connor; and a daughter-in-law, Rhonda Williams; Jeanne's daughter, Laura Moberly and her partner, Ron Schwarz; Jeanne's son, Richard Moberly and his wife, Laura McLeod Moberly; and six grandchildren: Sean and Haley O'Connor, Carli and Weston Williams, and Luke and Henry Moberly. He is also survived by his niece, Susan Hunt and his nephew, Robert Hunt. He will be missed by his entire family, his many friends, and by his two Yellow Labs, Bogey and Lilly.

Mr. William's Memorial Service will take place at Faith Presbyterian Church, 5916 N.W. 39th Avenue, Gainesville, Florida at 3:00 P.M. on July 2, 2014, officiated by Reverend Lauris Vidal. A reception from 4:00 to 6:00 P.M. will follow at the family's home. Arrangements are under the care of WILLIAMS-THOMAS FUNERAL HOME DOWNTOWN, 404 North Main Street.
