Obituary for Ruth S. Pearson
Ruth Emmeline Pearson (Sayer), 91, of Charlestown, RI, passed away unexpectedly on May 26, 2018 after a happy life of loving and being loved by many. She was the wife of the late Calvin Ellwood Pearson. Born in Providence, she was the daughter of the late Lillian Beatrice (McCall) and Raymond Vincent Sayer.

Ruth had been a volunteer for the Johnny Cake Center of Westerly and Seniors Helping Others and was an active member of Dunn’s Corner Community Church Presbyterian.

She was the beloved mother of Janet P. Smith (Donald Smith, Jr) of Charlestown, David C. Pearson (Kathy Ellis) of Wakefield, Karen R. Papa (Thomas Papa) of Charlestown, and Thomas R. Pearson (Linda Bouyssou) of Narragansett. She is also survived by 9 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren, and was predeceased by her grandson David C. Pearson, Jr.

She leaves a brother, George E. Sayer (Nancy A. Williams) of Florida, and a sister, Carolyn B. (E. John Ainsworth, decd.) of California. She will be missed and fondly remembered by several nieces and nephews.

Ruth was a proudly independent and giving woman who enjoyed crossword puzzles, crocheting, sewing, crafting, gardening, and church activities. With her many local friends and family, she avidly played cards and word games, remaining sharp until the end!
