Jan. 25, 1934 — Dec. 29, 2013
Lois “Ann” Rusk was born Jan. 25, 1934, to Don and Essie Mae Dazey in New Richmond, Ind. She passed away peacefully in her sleep at home in Somerset, Calif., on Dec. 29, 2013. She was preceded in death by her loving husband, James E. Rusk; loving daughter, Cheryl Rusk; and grandson, Greg Wright. She is survived by her son, James “Bryan” Rusk (Patricia); daughter, Sandy Wright (Ted); daughter, Vicki Rusk; four grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; and many other family members.
In the dash that consisted of her life, Ann was a daughter, sister, cousin, aunt, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, homemaker, teacher’s aide, bank teller and a dear friend. She loved and enjoyed many things in life. The covered bridges from back home were special to her, so she had one built on her property so she could have some of home here. She was loved by many and those who loved her sit with empty hearts hearing the news today. But what gives us comfort in knowing she is at peace and with family she loves. Until that big Christmas Day in the sky, Mom, we love you.
Services will be held at the Burkhart Funeral Home in Crawfordsville, Ind. A local memorial service is pending.
