Life’s Journey

Our beloved mother, Ms. Ruth Williams Cager was born on January 30,1942 in New Orleans, Louisiana. She was the youngest child of Arthur Williams and Katie Mae Shaw Williams. As a child she enjoyed spending time with her family. One of her fondest memories was watching westerns with her dad.

As a young lady Ruth met Waldon Cager Sr. They were married in 1959 and later became parents raising their family in St. Charles Parish in New Orleans, Louisiana. Ruth was a dedicated mother to her children and encouraged them to do their best in school and strive for higher education. Ruth provided for her family working for The New Orleans Housing Authority later retiring from there. She accepted Christ as her Lord and savior at an early age and raised her family in church attending Brooks United Methodist Church in Orleans Parish.
Ruth was known for her friendly personality and giving good advice to young people. She loved her family and her community. As her health declined, Ruth moved to Atlanta, Georgia with her son Waldon Cager, Jr. who loved and took care of her as long as he could. During her last stages of suffering from dementia, Waldon Jr. decided to move his mother to Houston, Texas to be closer to her sons. Early morning on April 14, 2024 Ms.

Ruth Cager succumbed to her illness and was received into her eternal rest. Proceeding Ruth in death are her parents, Arthur and Katie Mae Williams, sisters Ebbie Jean, Bobbie Jean, and Patricia.
