Ruth Ann Meyer

March 6, 1947 — May 1, 2024

Easley, SC

Ruth Ann Meyer, affectionately known as Ruth by her loved ones, passed away peacefully with her husband while holding her hand on May 1, 2024, in Greenville, SC, at the age of 77. Born on March 6, 1947, in Grand Rapids, MI, Ruth's life was a testament to the power of love, joy, and selflessness that she brought into the world.

Ruth's journey began as the cherished daughter of Evelyn and Russell Schuiling, and she grew up alongside her brothers, Raymond and Roger Schuiling, who predeceased her. Her formative years in Grand Rapids shaped the remarkable woman she would become, a woman whose radiant smile and generous spirit would leave an indelible mark on everyone she met.

Ruth's heart found its match when she married her loving husband, David Meyer, and together they navigated the waters of life for 57 beautiful years. Their love story was one for the ages, filled with shared dreams, laughter, and an unbreakable bond. The joy of their union was multiplied with the birth of their daughter, Stephanie, who, along with her husband John, Jr., gave Ruth the cherished title of 'mother.'

The family circle expanded with the arrival of grandchildren, Charles "Chip" Hunter and Rebecca Hunter, who were the apples of Ruth's eye. Alongside them, Abbey Sullivan, a special family member, added to the joy and warmth of Ruth's family life. Ruth's role as the best mother and grandmother was one she embraced with every fiber of her being, nurturing her family with love, wisdom, and the kind of support that only a heart as big as hers could provide.

Ruth's presence was a beacon of light, lighting up every room she entered with her infectious smile and friendly demeanor. Her selfless nature was evident in every aspect of her life, from her devotion as a loving wife to her enthusiastic participation in every family gathering. She was the epitome of love and friendship, always putting others before herself, and her legacy of kindness will live on in the hearts of those who knew her.

Beyond her family life, Ruth's interests were as vibrant and diverse as her personality. She relished the great outdoors, finding joy in camping and fishing, and she shared a passion for cruising and shopping that brought her immense pleasure. Riding the Gold Wing motorcycle was more than a hobby for Ruth; it was an expression of her adventurous spirit and love for life's simple pleasures.

Ruth's life was a beautiful tapestry woven with the threads of love, friendship, and selflessness. Her memory will be cherished and celebrated by all who were fortunate enough to know her. She leaves behind a legacy of warmth and compassion that will continue to inspire and guide her family and friends.

As we bid farewell to Ruth Ann Meyer, we do so with hearts full of gratitude for the time we were blessed to share with her. Her spirit will forever be a guiding light, reminding us to embrace life with a smile and to love unconditionally. Ruth's journey on earth may have come to a close, but her story will be told for generations, a story of a life well-lived and a woman dearly loved.
