Palmyra - Ruth Ann Adams, 60, passed gracefully into Eternity on Thursday September 13, 2018 embraced by family and friends after a brief but fierce battle with West Nile Virus.

She was born on the Winter Solstice of Saturday December 21, 1957 in Cleveland, Ohio to the late Joseph Romon and Lilly Bessie (Yahraus) Coltri. Although an Ohio Native, Ruth spent over a decade in Nor. Nevada during the 1980-90's where she met and created her first (of many) 'Family of Friends'. After returning to Cleveland for many years, Ruthie relocated to Palmyra, PA in Dec. 15' to be near her niece and nephew Dr. Rory and Mrs. Autumn DeTar along with their children Wesley, Benjamin, and Leonidas. It was in Palmyra that she flourished until God called her Home. Ruthie was a devout Christian and member of "The Bridge" church of Hummelstown, PA.

Most Notably, from September 11, 2016 until her passing she celebrated a life of Sobriety and Fellowship built upon and supported by cherished friends and God. Through her Sobriety, Ruthie fully embraced, embodied and shared a radiant glow of personal and spiritual growth through daily prayer, humility and charity. Ultimately- her selfless offering and acceptance of forgiveness will remain her signature and personal stamp on countless hearts. She shall Forever remain the North Star for those of us who wish to travel Home.
