SGN Scoops is sorry to hear of the passing of Ruth Ellen Carter Yates on October 5, 2015. Harold Timmons reported this on his facebook page:
FUNERAL SERVICE FOR RUTH ELLEN CARTER YATES OF THE CHUCK WAGON GANG
Funeral service for Ruth Ellen Yates will be Saturday, October 10th at 11:30am. It will be at Mount Olivet Funeral Home, 2301 N Sylvinia Ave., Ft. Worth, Tx. 76111.
The family is asking that in lieu of flowers donations can be made to Cooks Children’s Hospital in Ft. Worth to the Music Dept.
Ruth Ellen sang on the first concerts for Wally Fowler, as Anna had just had a son, Greg Gordon. In the late ’70’s Ruth Ellen began recording and touring with the Gang through 1989. She came back in 1994, touring, and recording again.
She was a wonderful singer, and the fans loved her. She loved her fans as well, and loved her work with the CWG. Please keep the family in your prayers.
