Ruth Mary WestonOctober 17, 1953 ~ October 24, 2017 (age 64)
Ruth Mary Weston was born on October 17, 1953 to John and Ruth Weston in Maryville, Tennessee and died on October 24, 2017 in her home in Greensboro NC surrounded by loved ones. She graduated from Maryville College with a degree in music. She started to follow in her mother’s footsteps by teaching (high school music and band), but soon decided she would rather follow in her father’s footsteps in the construction business. Over the years Ruth Mary built and remodeled many, many homes, and she developed a following of loyal customers who appreciated the quality she put in her craft. She loved fishing. She was a trusted and caring friend. She was brilliant and generous with her time and attention. She lived with intention. She was a beautiful person with a beautiful soul. She will be greatly missed; we are glad we had her with us.
Ruth Mary is survived by her partner of 24 years, Elizabeth Chartrand of the home; her mother, Ruth Henry Weston, her brothers Johnny (Carol) and Tom-Bill (Denise) of Maryville, and her sister Gretchen (Steve) Williams of Dallas, Georgia; and nieces, nephews, grand-nieces, and grand-nephews whom she loved dearly. She also leaves many devoted long-time friends.

Any donations would be welcome to Hospice and Palliative Care of Greensboro NC, or to the John Weston Memorial Gardens in Maryville, or to a charity of your choice.
