Ruth Ann Smith (nee Vogt), of Saint Peters, passed away Monday, January 22, 2024, at the age of 87. Beloved wife of the late Richard L.

After 15 years of service, Ruth retired from Boeing on January 14, 1999. She loved to attend monthly luncheons with her class reunion group. Ruth was a delicious cook and baker and enjoyed cooking for her family. She loved playing cards and playing poker, indulging in games like bingo and trying her luck at slot machines. Ruth's warm and affectionate nature endeared her to everyone who knew her, and her absence will be deeply felt by those who loved her dearly.
