Ruth Lee Griggs Satterfield, 84, of Blanch, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family on Sunday, October 4, 2020. Born in Caswell County, she was the daughter of the late Thomas Griggs and Rosa Eastwood Griggs. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Nancy Inman; half-brother, Walter Griggs; and her loving husband of over 50 years, Reginald Satterfield. Ruth enjoyed singing, loved the outdoors and was an avid gardener. Another love of hers was cooking. She loved to cook for her family and her passion was evident in the food that she prepared. Above everything else, her favorite past time was spoiling all of her grand and great grandchildren. Her favorite thing to do was to be with her family and her greatest joy was to see them happy and all together. She was the hardest working woman ever known, from simple things in life to cutting her own wood for her wood stove. And boy did she like it hot in her house!  Ruth was strong willed and determined, an amazing woman that will truly be missed.

Ruth leaves behind to cherish her memory one daughter, Emma Stallings of Blanch; sisters, Mary Inman of Mebane, Rosalla Barker and husband J.R. of Hillsville, VA, Mamie Ray and husband Larry of Graham; granddaughters, Jennifer Sims and husband Nay of Blanch, Stacey Saunders and husband Jason of Debary, FL and Tracey Killmer and husband David of Blanch; niece/granddaughter, Samantha Moorefield and husband Evan of Prospect Hill; and great grandchildren, Jonathan Sims, Jr., Ariana Kilmer, Hailey Saunders and Nathan Saunders.

At Ruth’s request, no services will be held.

Goodbye is not forever, goodbye is not the end. It simply means I’ll miss you until we meet again.
