Ruth Ann Millward

October 1, 1939 — December 3, 2021

Ruth Ann Millward, 82 of Pocatello, Idaho passed away on Friday, December 3, 2021 in her home.

She was born on October 1, 1939 to Richard and Anne Ramus Allingham in Buenos Aires, Argentina. She was raised in Sao Paulo, Brazil. She served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints in Brazil, where she met Wayne Ace Millward. They were married in the Logan Temple on September 25, 1959. Together they raised six children – Rachelle, Robert, Teresa, Michael, Richard and Andrew. Ruth was preceded in death by her husband and her parents.

Ruth spent her life as a dedicated Mother. She also worked for School District #25 for twenty seven years, most recently at Pocatello High School as a credit recovery teacher. After Wayne’s retirement, they served as mission presidents in the Belo Horizonte Mission for the church. Music was a big part of her life. She sang in the Camerata Singers for 22 years. Because of that, she was able to travel to several foreign countries and sang in some beautiful places. Her grandchildren were her life. She enjoyed playing games and spoiling them rotten.
