Ruth Ann “Ruthie” Casto Hively, 68, Vinton, Ohio fell asleep surrounded by her family Thursday, February 28, 2019 and instantly woke up in Heaven, in the presence of her Savior, Jesus Christ.
She was born November 21, 1950, daughter of the late Carroll and Gladys (Hedrick) Casto in Gallia County, Ohio. She was a member of Harris Baptist Church, Bidwell, Ohio, worked as the Medical Records Clerk for Holzer Medical Center and also as an aide for the Gallia County Local School System.
Ruth married the love of her life, Danny Hively, April 14, 1985, and shared their life together for thirty-three years, who survives. To this union were born two sons: Kyle Hively, Vinton, Ohio and Kelly Hively, Newark, Ohio. She leaves behind to cherish her memory her brother, Gary (Cindy) Casto and sisters-in-law, Brenda Casto and Patty Pugh, all of Gallipolis, Ohio as well as many nieces, nephews and extended family members.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her brothers, Clyde Casto and Charles Casto.

Ruth displayed Christs love by showing kindness and compassion to anyone she met. She never knew a stranger. While working for the Gallia County Local School System, she showed this kindness and compassion by giving haircuts to children who could not afford one otherwise and participated in many fundraisers as well. Ruth had a love of singing and her beautiful voice could be heard while worshipping her Lord. These were the talents God gave her and she used them well. She will live on through her children and all the people she touched. She will be greatly missed by all.
The Family extended their gratitude and would like to say Thank You to Holzer Hospice for the care they gave Ruth during her illness.
