Ruth Rolfe’s community work began as a teenager when she participated in the Oklahoma City Sit-In movement under the leadership of the iconic civil rights leader Mrs. Clara Luper. This included marching to and sitting-in at several restaurants in the Oklahoma City area, attending the historic March On Washington in 1963 and meeting Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Those experiences set the stage for her ongoing involvement in the community.

Ruth grew up in Oklahoma City where she graduated from Douglass High School. She holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in Psychology from the University of Central Oklahoma and an MBA from Oklahoma City University.  Ruth and her son Jarvis live in Oklahoma City where she enjoys retirement and being a grandmother and great grandmother.


Rebekah Williams has established herself as a leading figure in senior advocacy over her 20-year career, focusing on improving the lives of seniors in Oklahoma. Her extensive experience includes a 9-year tenure with the Ombudsman program, backed by her educational foundation specialized training in both federal and state Ombudsman supervisor mandates, completing trainings from the University of Oklahoma Geriatric institute and being a graduate of the Oklahoma Aging Advocate Leadership Academy

As a board member of the Oklahoma Council on Aging and the Vice President of the Oklahoma Alliance on Aging, Rebekah has been instrumental in shaping aging policy and enhancing senior care programs. Her advocacy reached a national audience when she attended a Congressional Hearing in Washington D.C., supporting critical discussions on the Ombudsman program.
