Dr. Ruth Couch, a  good friend of mine and many people in Beebe and around the state,  died this past week.

She was very active in many different organizations and began her college teaching career at ASU-Beebe in 1971. In later years, she became the director of the Beebe Chamber of Commerce. She was always helpful no matter what the cause. She recently helped two different groups by preparing a history of the Antioch School system and the Floyd School system.  She was so happy to have helped these people - her friends - prepare something that would be a part of history.

We will miss her smiling face, her dry wit and the way she offered her help to so many in this area.

Rest in peace.
