ELDRED, PA - Ruth W. Stoughton, 96, of Mechanic Street went home to be with the Lord on Sunday (Feb. 22, 2009) at the Siloam Springs (Ark.) Nursing Home while visiting her daughter, following a brief illness.

Born June 7, 1912, in Lickingville, Clarion County, she was a daughter of Samuel Bert and Charlotte Mae Detrie Wright. On April 30, 1933, in Mineral Springs, Ohio, she married Roland M. "Gus" Stoughton, who passed away July 5, 1999.

Mrs. Stoughton was valedictorian and a 1930 graduate of Concord Township High School in Butler County and a 1934 graduate of Allegheny College, where she traveled with the choral group, The Allegheny Singers, and was a member of Kappa Delta Epsilon educational sorority.
She later attended Penn State University, Mansfield College and St. Bonaventure University to become certified in special education and secondary education.

She had lived in the Eldred area since 1934 and at her residence on Mechanic Street for 70 years.

Mrs. Stoughton had been employed in the Oswayo Valley and Olean, NY, school districts as a special-education teacher. She later substituted in the Bradford Area school district for 11 years prior to her retirement in 1981.

She was a past member of the Foursquare Gospel Church in Bradford, attended the Eldred United Methodist Church, was a current member of the American Association of University Women in Bradford and was a charter member of the AGLOW Women's Association of Olean.
Mrs. Stoughton loved God and studying and teaching the Bible. She was a joy and inspiration to all who knew her.

She enjoyed all kinds of painting, including oil, acrylics and watercolors, enjoyed needlework and loved traveling around the country to spend time with her family.

Surviving are four sons, Richard (Helen) Stoughton of Hampstead, NC, David (Sally) Stoughton of Hopewell Junction, NY, Roland "Skeet" (Lola) Stoughton and John (Charlotte) Stoughton, both of Eldred; three daughters, Carol (Rev.

She was predeceased by a daughter, Gayle Stoughton, in 1941; a great-grandson, Dustin Kelsey; three brothers, Bruce, Dee and Gene Wright; and a sister, Arlene Curry.

Friends may call Friday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9 p.m. at the Frame Funeral Home, Eldred. Funeral services will be held Saturday (Feb. 28, 2009) at 1 p.m. in the Eldred United Methodist Church, with the Rev. David Heckman, pastor, and the Rev.
