LERITTE, Ruth Ann St. John resident, died suddenly December 2, 2013 following a car accident near Pullman. She was 31. Memorial Services will be held Friday, December 6th at 1:00 PM at the Christian Life Assembly in St. John. Burial will be in the St. John Cemetery. Ruth was born July 23, 1982 in Colorado Springs, Colorado to Wilton and Beverly Ensign Leritte. The family moved to Bossier City, Louisiana when she was a year old and she spent most of her youth there. They moved to St. John in 1999 and she finished her last two years of high school there; graduating in 2001. She moved back to Louisiana for a while where she attended college courses and correspondence school. She worked as a secretary in various jobs and for schools and also did some computer programming work. Her favorite job was being “mom” to her two beautiful children, Dylan and Aurianna, ages 11 and 9. Ruth and her two kids moved back to St. John in 2011. She has been a personal caregiver working at Community Pride in St. John for the last two years. Shortly after moving back, she met Joshua Coniber, and they have been inseparable since and have enjoyed many happy moments together. They liked to take trips around the State in their car, go camping or watch TV, but mostly Ruth really enjoyed just the quiet family times that they all shared. Her daughter Anna recalled that mom’s favorite color was always purple. She attended the Christian Life Assembly Church in St. John. Ruth Ann was an excellent cook and was talented with the use of spices. She made dishes “just right” by her knowledge of which spice would work best. She is survived by her two children, Dylan Campbell and Aurianna Leritte; her parents Wil and Beverly Leritte all of St. John; two sisters, Gail Leritte, Spokane, and Sara Leritte of Little Rock, Arkansas; as well as her significant other, Joshua Coniber of St. John. Ruth Ann is also part of the larger Love/Osmun family. Memorial gifts are suggested to the Ruth Leritte Memorial Fund set up at the St. John Bank of Lamont. On-line guest book is at
