Ruth Mehner (April 3, 1918 – October 3, 2001)
Ruth began her involvement with Camp Gilead when Tabernacle Baptist Church first began developing the property in 1948. She and her family were among the workcrews who labored so diligently to build the facilities. Her children, grandchildren and now her great grandchildren attended camps and retreats here. After retirement, she and her husband, Bob, settled here at the camp and spent many years volunteering in the areas of maintenance and housekeeping. She was a faithful servant of God and a wonderful friend and mentor.
