Ruth Ann Carnahan of Tiffin passed away Thursday, March 16, 2023, at her home.

She was born Jan. 2, 1949, to Ray and Lela (McConnell) Neikirk. She married Ron Carnahan and he survives in Tiffin.

Ruth Ann's other survivors include a son, Christopher Seville; and grandchildren, Elizabeth, Tayden, Christopher Jr., Lyric, and Jordan. Many nieces and nephews survive that will miss their Aunt Ruth whom they loved dearly because of her loving heart and sense of humor.
