She was born March 2, 1941 in Gloucester, Massachusetts the daughter of Charles and Lilla (Wheelock) Smith. 

She spent a number of years working in daycare settings before becoming a private nanny.  Her love of children was evident as she stayed in touch with children and families that she nannied for.  She unwillingly retired in March 2009.  She was a member of the North Yarmouth Congregational Church, where she was a member of the choir and served as a deacon. 

Ruthanne was predeceased by both of her parents and her brothers Charles (Chuck) and Bruce Smith.

The family wishes to extend a warm thank you to Androscoggin Home Health and Hospice.
