Ruth Ann Peters Obituary
July 12, 1921 - February 8, 2018 Loved her culture, politics, family, the beach, and baseball. Born in Boyle Heights, to Samuel Harris, a Los Angeles native, and Lillie Cohen, a refugee from Tsarist pogroms. A life-long wanderer in the "City of Angles" who knew all the angles, yet remained optimistic, good-natured, and tolerant; she weathered the vagaries of the age of extremes guided by a world picture shaped when she discovered "Leaves of Grass" as a teen. She settled in West LA, as did many of her friends, where she raised a family with her beloved husband Larry. She will be missed by all who knew her.
