Mrs. Ruth Ann Looney, age 71, passed away Sunday, January 20, 2019 in Canon City, Colorado. She was born July 3, 1947 to Robert Dale and Anna Mildred (Kane) Clingenpeel in Louisville, Mississippi. Ruth grew up in North Liberty, graduating from North Liberty High School. She married Jimmy D. Looney on March 10, 1983 and spent her years as a homemaker and a loving Mother.
One of her greatest joys was attending Skyline Mennonite Church where she knew everyone and greeted them with a smile. She loved waving at the babies in Church and was always there to lend a helping hand. It gave her so much joy to sing Gospel and Country music.
