GUILFORD AND DEXTER- Ruth Lee Covel, 89, went home to be with her Lord on Thanksgiving Day, November 25, 2010. She was born January 29, 1921, in Bradford, daughter of Ralph and Gladys (Fernald) Lee.

She played several musical instruments, as well as doing sewing, knitting, cross stitch and made many stuffed animals, as well as animals and toys out of wood. A great homemaker, she was a wonderful example of Proverbs 31 verses 10-31, where the Bible speaks about a virtuous woman. She had been a member of the First Baptist Church in Dexter for over 50 years. After moving to Guilford to be near her children, she became a member of Guilford Center Baptist Church.

She is remembered by two sons and their wives, Stephen and Mary Covel of Sangerville, and Timothy and Carol Covel of Stobill, NC; six grandchildren; eight great grandchildren; and two great great grandchildren.

She was predeceased by her beloved husband of 58 years, Arthur W. Covel; a son, David R. Covel; and a brother, Clyde F. Lee.

The family appreciates the loving care Ruth received while at Hibbard Nursing Home in Dover-Foxcroft.

A funeral service and celebration of Ruth's life will be held at 2 PM, Thursday, December 2, 2010, at the First Baptist Church in Dexter, with Pastor David Lassell officiating. A time of visitation will be held from 1 PM until the time of the service.

Spring burial will be in the Mt. Pleasant Cemetery in Dexter.
