Ruth Ann Meek

July 16, 1964 ~ October 29, 2020 (age 56)


Ruth Ann Meek, age 56, of  New Philadelphia, Ohio died late Thursday afternoon,  October 29, 2020 in the Cleveland Clinic Main Campus in Cleveland, Ohio.

She was born July 16, 1964 in Dover, Ohio and was the daughter of  the late Roy Junior Tice Sr. and Jennie Smart Tice.  In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by  two brothers Paul Junior Smart and Rocky Smart and two sisters Gertrude Gatten and Elizabeth Tice.

Primarily a homemaker, Ruth engaged in a variety of craft projects. Although she spent much of her time in her home, she was fond of attending local yard sales. When she wasn't involved in her painting or craft designs, she cultivated her vegetable gardens and luxurious floral beds. Ruth was also a creative baker and excellent cook.  She found comfort in listening to the sound of the falling rain. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and sister who will be dearly missed by her family and friends.
