Ruth Ann (Thomas) Price, age 81 passed peacefully from this world on December 11, 2017. She began her life in Elkland, born to the most wonderful parents, Lewis and Olive (Johnson) Thomas. Perhaps growing up in a small town was the cause of her wander-lust, as Ruth Ann became an adventurer. She would pick up and move to a new town at the drop of a hat. She enjoyed exploring new sights, learning new occupations and making new friends. She eventually returned to her hometown and family to raise her daughter, Pamela (Price) Fish. Ruth was a voracious reader with a photographic memory. She devoured books and magazines but her favorite book was The Bible. It was always open and be her chair or bed. Her love of The Bible complimented her love of music. Ruth played piano for many of the churches she attended and the church services held at her former home, Forestview Manor in Elkland. To her family Ruth Ann will always be remembered as a lover of children, dogs, old movies and Diet Pepsi. Survivors are her daughter, Pamela (Greg Gehl); granddaughters, Meghan (Robert) Weaver and Olivia (Stanley West) Fish; five great grandchildren; a sister, Diane (John) Spielman, along with several nieces and nephews. It will be with fond memories and chuckles that these people will keep her memory alive. Private services will be held at the convenience of her family and memorial donations can be made in Ruth Ann’s name to the Elkland Area Community Library, 110 Parkway Ave., Elkland, PA 16920. Arrangements are in care of Kenyon Funeral Home, Elkland. www.kenyonfuneralhome.com.
