Ruthy M. Hesselton
May 1, 1935 - September 9, 2017



Ruthy M. Griffin Hesselton, 82, New Smyrna Beach, passed away peacefully on Saturday, Sept. 9, 2017 at Halifax Hospice Care Center, Port Orange with her family by her side.  Ruthy was born May 1, 1935 in Lyons, GA and moved to New Smyrna Beach at the age of six remaining a resident until her death.  In her life, as in her death, she was an independent lady who always did things her way thus making her known as “the one and only”.  Survivors include daughter, Sheila Hesselton; two sons, Kenneth Hesselton, Rodney and his wife, Sheila Hesselton; three grandchildren, Cy, Cydney and Cymone Hesselton; two sisters, Janet (Larry) Maves and Loresa (Tom) Dever; sister-in-law, Karen Holland; five nieces, Lisa (Alan) Giese, Trisha (Daren) Engelmeier, Kathy (John) Hendrix, Sarah Holland and Cara Lovins; three nephews, R J (Rena) Strayhorn, Travous (Megan) Dever and Terry Dever.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Alieze and Cecil Holland and Joseph Griffin and one brother, William “Bill” Holland.  The family wishes to acknowledge her friends, too many to mention, the angels at Halifax Hospice, Port Orange, the staff at Ocean View Nursing & Rehab Center, New Smyrna Beach and Florida Hospital Memorial Medical Center, Daytona Beach.  It was Ruthy’s wish not to have a funeral service.  Cremation will be by Dudley Crematory, New Smyrna Beach.
