      Ruth Wolfe Waring, 97, of Arnold, MD died on November 4th after a long period of declining health. She was born on September 11, 1914 in Mr. Airy, NC to Henry and Mamie Wolfe. An only child, she graduated from Salem College in 1935 with degrees in music and English. She moved to New York City where she accepted a position teaching English in Puerto Rico for one year. On her return she taught music at the New York Institute for The Blind. There she met William H. Waring, a shop teacher at the school, and they were married on August 28, 1938. The family moved to North Carolina in 1947 and she taught piano lessons for over 40 years to multiple generations in the Elkin community. She was a member of the First Methodist Church and was active in its choir, handbells, and Circles. She sang in the annual Messiah concert with the Community Chorus for over 40 years.

      Mrs. Waring was a patron of the arts and participated in many of the Foothills Theatre productions. She loved to travel and visited 29 countries on five continents. She is survived by her son, William M. Waring (and his wife Marie) of Severna Park, MD, her daughter, Mary Dent (and her husband Tom) of Arnold, MD, and by 4 grandchildren and 3 great-grandchildren. Friends are invited to a Memorial Service to be held on Saturday, December 3rd at 11 am at the First Methodist Church of Elkin.
