Ruth Ann Gallant

It is with heavy hearts that the family of Ruth Ann Gallant, wife of Leo Gallant, announces her passing which occurred on Sunday, November 27, 2022, at the Sussex Health Centre. Ruth Ann was born on February 2, 1943, in Saint John, NB, and was the daughter of the late Walter and May (Gaudet) Hannah.


During her life, Ruth Ann worked as an office clerk for Downey Ford for over forty years before retiring. She loved spending time playing cards or “small” bingo with her family and friends. She took great pride in her family and loved to cook them meals and making memories with them at the trailer in Prince Edward Island or when she and Leo travelled to Florida. Ruth Ann loved music and enjoyed jam sessions where she could listen to her favourite country music artists. She was kind, patient and loved to laugh at the antics of her family. Ruth Ann will be remembered for her kind, fun and bright A-1 personality.
