I was fortunate to have met Ruth Ann shortly after Charles and I were married. I was unsure how Ruth Ann would "feel" about meeting me; afterall, Joanne was her only sister. But very quickly Ruth Ann set me at ease, saying, "It's good you and Charles met each other. Being alone is no fun." What a kind and meaningful introduction! I will not forget Ruth Ann. May her soul rest in Peace.

With good memories, Ruth Ann will be sorely missed by her brother-in-law Charles Van Ameyden, by her niece Vicki Van Ameyden (Brian
Rowden), and by her nephews David (Kris), and Paul (Laura) Van Ameyden and family. Ruth Ann will be remembered as a conscientious and dedicated worker, an insatiable reader, and an interesting and good conversationalist.
May she rest in Peace.
