Ruth Ann Sellon Ramus went to Heaven on January 13, 2018 at her home in Antioch. She was surrounded by her Loving Family. Ruth was born in 1935 in Nebraska and moved to Portland, Oregon at age 2. Ruth married Joseph Ramus in 1957. They were blessed with 4 children, 9 grandchildren, and 6 great grandchildren. Ruth and Joseph cherished their 60 years together and the Love displayed by the entire Family. They felt a special Blessing from God for the many happy times with Family and Friends.
Ruth was a devoted stay-at-home Mom for her Children and she was also active in helping with her Grandchildren. Ruth always enjoyed children and she served as a Teacher’s Aide for several years in Livermore. Ruth was a friend to everyone and always had a Happy Smile for everyone. Her friends called her “The Captain” because she would often plan events for a group.
Ruth’s favorite place for a Vacation was in Hawaii. She wanted to go to Hawaii when she was in High School but her parents could not afford such a vacation. Her first trip to Hawaii was in 1985 with her Mother and Sister. She went again with Joseph in 1988 and many times since then.
