Ruth Ann loved and lived life to the fullest. She had adventurous life but was a humble and spiritual person who loved listening to music especially Teena Marie and “big” Luther Vandross. She had a flare for fashion and loved to dress to impress. She could walk miles in her high heels saying that flat shoes hurt her feet. Ruth Ann had beautiful heart, was very generous with a great personality and wicked sense of humor. She loved to have fun, to smile and make others smile. Ruth volunteered her time with M.O.T.I.O.N Drill team for many years. She was a mentor and “auntie” to many of the young ladies but her greatest joy was being a doting grandmother. She had a deep, unselfish love for her family, and, to her friends and will be greatly missed.
