Ruth Culbertson Samuelson Rotary Club of Charlotte-South President
...
Ruth Culbertson Samuelson, who entered politics in Charlotte and rose to its top ranks in North Carolina before walking away three years ago, has died at 57.
...
Forthright and strong in her faith, Samuelson revealed in June that she had ovarian cancer. "I want people to know that God is my good friend," she said before she died.
Samuelson, a Republican, was a Mecklenburg County commissioner for four years before being elected to the N.C. House in 2006.
Ruth Samuelson lived by two mottos: Reflect Christ and Pack Light, for you never know what the future holds.
She embraced those principles through a life of public and political service, and a brief struggle with ovarian cancer that ended with her death on Monday, January 23, 2017. She was comforted until the end by her loving family and her faith.
Ruth was born on Nov. 4, 1959, the second of Bob and Peggy Culbertson's four children.
...
In an era of busing, Ruth attended six schools by the time she graduated from West Charlotte High School, deepening her sensitivity toward other people's journeys. She never became the "radical liberal feminist" that her mother, half-jokingly, hoped she might. But Ruth embraced the cause of racial reconciliation and fought to preserve the environment, citing her leadership in creating the Little Sugar Creek Greenway as one of her proudest accomplishments. She credits her parents with raising her to speak up and fight for what she believed in, even if it was from the Republican side of the aisle. Her parents were so proud of her.
Ruth earned a Bachelor of Arts degree in Speech Communications from UNC Chapel Hill in 1981, though she took home more than a diploma: She met fellow Tar Heel Ken Samuelson at a Campus Crusade for Christ meeting. They were married on July 18, 1981, the start of what both agreed was a perfect union, full of fun and adventure. In the days before her passing, she'd say the only bad part about going to heaven is that he wouldn't be there. He'd turn to her and say, "At least for awhile."
Ruth began her career in the securities/insurance business, but found her true calling in politics. She served as a Mecklenburg County Commissioner from 2000 to 2004 before getting elected to the N.C. House in 2006. She represented her south Charlotte district for four terms. She rose steadily through the ranks, her conservative voice resonating even as legislators from both parties praised her gift for negotiating. She became Republican Conference leader and chair of the Banking and Environment committees. She was a strong contender to become the first female Speaker of the House when she decided in 2013 not to seek re-election. Just as she felt called to politics, she felt called to come home, to be closer to their four grown children and their families, and to her aging parents.
