Ruth E. Blount, 86, of Mountville, received an offer from Heaven that she couldn’t refuse, on Wednesday, October 3, 2018 at Conestoga View. She was the wife of the late Nolan L. Blount who went to Heaven in 2005. She was born in Lancaster, daughter of the late Ernest H. and Hazel M. Puridy Baisch. She worked as an assembler for KD Tools for many years before her retirement in 1992. She enjoyed going to garage sales, her family, including her children and grandchildren, and her flower beds.
