Ruthann was born in Toledo, OH on Nov. 10, 1950. In her adult years she relocated to MD where she spent more than 25 years caring for children at St. Paul's Christian Children's Center in Upper Marlboro, Md. After retiring in 2010, she and Bob relocated to Cary, NC to be closer to family. She devoted her time to her grandchildren, volunteering at their school, and enjoyed playing mahjong with her neighborhood friends.

Ruthann was predeceased by her parents, Glenford and Athelia Rupp of Toledo, OH, and by her grandson Jackson Stone. She is survived by her husband Bob Stone of Cary, NC, son Tim Stone (w. Heather) of Colorado Springs, CO, son Chris Stone (w. Susan) of Cary, NC, and sister Linda Novins (h. Dave) of Holiday, FL. She also leaves behind six grandchildren who she loved with all her heart…Isaac, Rachael, Asher and Levi Stone of Colorado Springs, and Katie and Jake Stone of Cary.

Ruthann will be loved and missed by her family and her many, many friends. A celebration of her life will be announced in the future. The family will be greeting friends and family at a casual Open House Sunday evening, May 18, at 789 Eldridge Loop, Cary, from 4:00--8:00pm (children are welcome).

In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Gail Parkins Memorial in honor of Ruthann. Please use the link below to connect directly to her page (team "Walking For Ruthann").
