Mrs. Bruce was born on January 5, 1936, in Macedonia, MS to the late Edmond and Pearlie Gray Wingo. She was a longtime teacher’s aide at Lafayette Elementary School. Following her retirement, she enjoyed accompanying her late husband, Winston Bruce, on his trucking routes across the country. She was social by nature and enjoyed spending time with her friends and family and participating in whatever activities were on the books. She especially enjoyed playing dominos and visiting late into the evening. Her family will miss her homecooked meals and recall that everything she cooked was delicious even though she never had to use a recipe. In addition to her husband and parents, Mrs. Bruce was preceded in death by a brother, Edmond Wingo.
She is survived by a daughter, Patricia Ann Pruitt of Etta, MS; a son, Winston Ralph Bruce, Jr. and his wife, Judy of Oxford; four grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Memorial contributions in Mrs. Bruce’s memory may be made to a charity of the donor’s choice.
