Obituary for Ruth Bayles Grimes

Ruth Bayles Grimes, 93, passed away on Saturday, August 24, 2019 at Kitty Askins Hospice Center.

Ruth was born in Harnett County on January 2, 1926 to the late David Burt Bayles and Mary Cornelia Lewis Bayles. She was married for over 50 years to the late Jesse Floyd Grimes.
Ruth had worked for many years with the State of North Carolina at O’Berry Center before leaving to take care of her husband. She tirelessly devoted herself as his daily caregiver – he was her world and the love of her life. Ruth and Jesse loved their family and the time they spent with their sons.

During World War II, Ruth served our country with the Federal Bureau of Investigations and with British Intelligence at the British Embassy. Ruth lived a life of dedication to her family and friends, and to her community. She was a member of the Daughters of the American Revolution and the United Daughters Confederacy where she served as the National Recorder of Crosses and as the Vice President General.

The family will receive friends on Wednesday, August 28, 2019 from 1:00 – 2:00 p.m. at Seymour Funeral Home followed by a service to celebrate Ruth’s life at 2:00 p.m. in the chapel. Interment will be in the Pikeville Cemetery.

Ruth is survived by her sons, Jeffrey Miles Grimes of Princeton and David Thomas Grimes of Pikeville; and her brother, L.C. Bayles of Erwin.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by her sisters, Doris Barbour, Vera B. Webb, and Linda B. Jackson; and her brother, Billy Bayles.

Flowers are welcome or memorials may be given in Ruth’s memory to the United Daughters Confederacy Scholarship Fund or to Kitty Askins Hospice Center.
