We are so very sorry to know that Ruth Ann is no longer with us. She will be missed and remembered by the Segovia family! We have so many memories of sharing time with Ruth Ann at the beach. From before we had children, to when our babies were small, we enjoyed so many lovely vacations in Litchfield with the extended French crew! Ruth Ann brought life into every room she entered - always ready to laugh and liven things up. She and Xavier witnessed the sun set over a drink on the beach on more than one day, having to be called into to dinner. Ruth Ann always did have the best tan, she loved being on the beach and in the sun so much! She planned some really lovely trips for Xavier and I, and we really treasured her expertise. I will miss her style, the example she set for how to age simply beautifully and for how to live a full life. We love you, Ruth Ann.

I have so many memories of Ruth and I...and it usually involved a lot of laughing! Two in particular stand out. First,...spending a good hour in downtown Alton searching through trash cans, looking for a wallet, which was ultimately found behind the glovebox in the car! Also, we spent lots of time shopping and we were delighted with our purchase of matching gold sequined jackets....very early 90’s! Ruth Ann was so kind and will truly be missed.
