Ruth Ann Palmer

November 15, 1946July 18, 2014

Today, July 18, 2014, my mother passed away after a five-year battle with cancer. She was 67. A child of the '60s and originally from Baltimore, she attended Juniata, Temple and also University of PA, ultimately achieving two master's degrees. She worked as a History teacher in a poor section of Philadelphia for a few years before I was born.

After leaving the city with my father for a secluded home bordering French Creek State Park, she dedicated her life to gardening, cooking and caring for her animals (myself included).

In her final days, she was surrounded by her family and friends. My father, Thomas S. Palmer, was with her at the end. Goodbye, Mom. Be at peace.

Ruth was the daughter of the late Charles and Jane Williams.

She is aslo survived by her son, Matthew W. Palmer, her brother, Robert "LA" Williams, and her grandson, Timmy.

A Memorial Service will be announced at a later date in the summer.

Auman's Inc Funeral Home, Reiffton is entrusted with her service.
