Ruth Olene Volkman Mimms
Ruth Olene Volkman Mimms accepted a contract with our Lord on August 30, 2016 to manage his many mansions. Born on October 1, 1924 in Forestburg, Texas. Ruth lived all over the U. S. and Japan due to her adventurous and independent spirit and her military involvement as an Air Force wife and Military Housing Manager. After retiring in the 1980’s, she settled in Portland, Texas to be closer to her daughter and granddaughter and opened her own real estate brokerage--Alpha Real Estate in Aransas Pass. Ruth loved her different roles in the real estate industry. Her creative outlet was moving houses and bringing new life to something old and worn. Some were moved down Ocean Drive or barged across Corpus Christi Bay to Port Aransas. DO YOU WANT TO BUY A HOUSE?? was still a favorite exclamation at 91. Ruth is survived by her daughter Dinah Bowman of Portland, Texas, her granddaughter Coral Dworaczyk of Corpus Christi, Texas and her nieces and nephew. She is preceded in death by her parents, her brother and sister, and Slaughter Mimms II her son. The memorial for Ruth Mimms will be held in the small chapel at First United Methodist Church-- Shoreline. September 17, 2016 at 3:00. Ladies please wear a significant piece of jewelry in her honor. In lieu of flowers please make donations to Alzheimer’s research or your charity of choice.
