CLIFTON – Ruth E. Roy, 63, wife of the late Frederic C. Roy Sr., passed away peacefully June 22, 2013, in Brewer, with her family at her side. She was born Dec. 7, 1949, in Milbridge, daughter of Gene A. and Barbara E. (Dorr) Pinkham.
They say that true love stories never have endings, so find comfort in knowing that she and Rick are now starting the next chapter of their love story together after nine long years. Ruth was known by many as a dedicated daughter, wife, mother, aunt and Nay Nay. She loved spending time with her family, especially her grandchildren. One of her greatest times of her life was spent working at the Otis General Store where she was known for her smile and sarcasm. Those that knew her, knew that she was truly one of a kind.
In addition to her parents, Ruth is survived by her children, Fredric C. Roy Jr. and wife, Laurie, of Wareham, Mass., Sara Shahan and husband, Daniel, of Virginia Beach, Va., Sandy Reed and partner, Jason Flint, of Eddington, Megan Williams and husband, Shawn, of Kailua, Hawaii, and Tony Garreans and partner, Janna Johnson, of Presque Isle; seven grandchildren, Madyson, Zachary, Nadiyah, Freddy, Brooke, Desirae and John; brother, Denny Pinkham and wife, Cheryl, of Bangor; and several nieces, nephews, cousins, aunts and friends. She was predeceased by her brother, Stanley Pinkham; and the love of her life, Rick.

A graveside service to honor Ruth’s life will be held 11 a.m. Thursday, June 27, at Jonathan Eddy Cemetery, Route 178, Eddington, with Pastor Gerry Dill presiding.
