Ruth Ann Torres
1956 ~ 2015
Too soon our loving Mother, Sister, Grandmother and friend passed away surrounded by her family on December 4, 2015. Ruth Ann was born September 26, 1956 to loving parents Rey R.and Gloria O.Torres. Ruth Ann had a life full of physical ailments. She never complained and always had a smile as the next complication would enter her life. She loved her children and grandchildren and never turned down an opportunity to have them around! She was an amazing cook and enjoyed using her skills for family gatherings. It was amazing that even being legally blind she learned to crochet beautiful blankets.
Ruth Ann was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of LatterDay Saints and though she was not able to attend as much as she would have liked she knew her Heavenly Father loved her. We are sad to let her go, but we are comforted knowing she is no longer suffering. She will be missed by all who knew her. She is leaving behind a legacy of strength, courage and unselfish love!
She was preceded in death by her grandson Trejon Fite, parents Rey R. and Gloria O.Torres and her husband Derwin Mason. She is survived by their three children Marcela Ann Torres (Jason), Maseo Damone Mason (Charita), Derek Ramone Mason (Moala), stepdaughter Starshima Brown whom she loved like her own and special caregiver Kadi Mason.
She is also survived by her siblings Gloria Rae Hernandez (Manuel), Rafael R. Torres (Beto) and Raquel Torres (Quela),12 grandchildren and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.
Our family gives a special thanks to Ruthie’s friends at Aspen Ridge West and to the wonderful doctors and nurses at IMC and St. Marks hospitals for working to allow her son Derek to spend some time with his mother before she received her wings.
