Meet the Baker, Ruth Weaver

Ruth has the Recipe for Friendship

Ruth Weaver’s home-baked sweet treats have filled tummies and made smiles for over 70 years – and counting! No matter what Ruth mixes in her bowl, it’s made with a recipe for friendship and happiness. She also:

  • Ran a dairy farm for 53 years with her husband
  • Earned a degree at Canton Business College
  • Had a 23-year sales career for a typewriter company
  • Enjoys baking in her Assisted Living apartment

Why Copeland Oaks

For many years Ruth’s family, friends and neighbors couldn’t get enough of her homemade pies, cakes and cookies. Later, she left the farm in Monroe County but chose Copeland Oaks for that same sense of sharing and community.

“I bake to socialize,” Ruth says. At age 97, she brings her home-baked breads, biscuits and sweets to the common area, sharing treats with fellow residents who sit and chat. Ruth also takes pastries to friends in their rooms or to brighten the days of our neighbors living in Crandall.

Ruth loves social life at Copeland Oaks – playing cornhole, attending Bible study and doing her daily devotions.

“Living at Copeland is like living with family,” says Ruth. “The residents became my new family after moving to Copeland.”
