Ruth J. DuBois, of the Ann's Choice community in Warminster, passed away on Monday evening, June 22, 2020. She was 82 years old. Ruth was born in Philadelphia on June 23, 1937 to the late Dr. Frederick Wayne Jarvis and Ruth (née Hagerman) Jarvis. She is survived by her devoted husband of 59 years the Rev. Dr. Charles H. DuBois; her beloved sons Carl F. DuBois (husband to Sharon and grandfather to Cora) and Kenneth B. DuBois (husband to Susan); and her adored granddaughter Isabel DuBois.
Ruth was a 1955 graduate of Friends Central High School in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. She attended the University of Delaware where she received a Bachelor of Science in Education in 1959. Charles and Ruth married on July 9th, 1960. They lived in Moorestown, New Jersey. Moving to Cory, Pennsylvania in 1964 and then relocated to Pitman, New Jersey, where they lived for 18 years. Throughout these years Ruth was a devoted and dedicated mother, a partner to her husband (who was a full-time Episcopal parish priest) and a teacher in the local school system.
In the mid-1980s, Charles and Ruth moved to Sewanee, Tennessee where they were active members of the University of the South community. Ruth also taught in the local elementary school system; helped organize the local Million Mom March; and worked with the local chapter of Reach for Recovery (an international breast cancer support group). Charles and Ruth moved to Ann's Choice in 2007 to be closer to their family.
