Ruth Ann Leever
...
Ruth Ann was a remarkable wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend. She lived in Watertown before moving to Bethlehem in 1952. She welcomed everyone into her home and was greatly admired by all who knew her. She was a no nonsense woman with a joyful sense of humor who had an agile mind and an insatiable curiosity about everything. Her love for travel was evidenced by her exploring the back roads of Litchfield County, following maps to explore her roots in Ohio, Pennsylvania, Michigan and a family farm overseas in Wales, making sketches of family homes along the way. She welcomed international exchange students into her home from Finland, Trinidad and the Netherlands, keeping in touch with all of her worldwide friends as she embraced modern technology on her ipad.
Ruth Ann was the choir director and organist at the First Church of Bethlehem UCC and the First Congregational Church in Watertown for over five decades; she often walked over two miles to and from organ practice. Although she avoided the limelight, her passion for orchestral music was the inspiration for the the Fine Arts Center atrium at Naugatuck Valley Community College, several Waterbury Symphony education initiatives including Bravo Waterbury, and many other education programs in Litchfield and New Haven counties. She served on the Board of Directors of the Leever Foundation and the Waterbury Symphony, and was active in girl scouting.
The Woodbury-Bethlehem Community Music Foundation, Inc. was one of Ruth Ann's many supported organizations. She helped spearhead what we now see and hear in the string players of Region 14. Her dedication to our mission and this project never wavered. Ruth Ann felt priveleged to attend the very first performance of the String Students at Mitchell School in 2011.
We hope that we can live up to the legacy she has left for us in providing our community, and particularly it's children, the means, commitment and passion to pursue music as a way of enhancing our lives!
