Anna “Ruth” Thompson McCollum
December 17, 1927 – January 30, 2021
East Wenatchee, Washington

Anna “Ruth” Thompson McCollum, age 93, passed away from Covid on January 30, 2021. She was a longtime East Wenatchee resident. Mom was born December 17, 1927 to Burley and Myrtle “Kelly” Pace in East Wenatchee, WA. She attended school in East Wenatchee until her junior year of high school, when she attended and graduated from Chelan High School.

Mom married our dad, Stan Thompson in Chelan, February 1946. They lived in Chelan for some time before moving to East Wenatchee. They had two sons: Danny and Scott. Mom worked packing apples and also as a receptionist for Dr. Paul Lyons. The family spent many fun times going camping and hunting. We has so many wonderful memories of the time we spent outdoors (and there were many!) Sadly, dad passed away from a car accident in 1984 and mom’s life was never quite the same.

Mom loved to travel and visited Ireland, China, Australia, New Zealand, Fiji, and Hawaii. She loved going places and seeing new things. She also loved her phone with her best friend of 88 years, Barbara Cross.

Mom married David McCollum in August of 2003. They also resided in East Wenatchee. Mom spent many hours outside with David, making their yard into a beautiful flower garden. She absolutely never met a flower that she didn’t want!

She was preceded in death by her parents Burley and Myrtle Pace; stepmother Florence Pace; brothers Bob, Malcolm, and Chuck Pace; sisters Maxie Blatchford, Lora McLaren, and Doris Moore; husband Stan in 1984; grandson Jason in 1984; and son Danny in 2019.

She is survived by husband David McCollum; son Scott (Gayle) Thompson of East Wenatchee; two stepchildren Mark (Dana) McCollum, and Darla (Al) Coffer of Arlington, WA. As well as by eight grandchildren and fifteen great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews. Mom is also survived by her best friend of 88 years, Barbara Cross of Oregon.

We love you Mom and cannot express what a big presence you have been in all our lives. We will miss you always.

Arrangements are in the care of Heritage Memorial Chapel. Due to Covid restrictions, no services will be held at this time. A gathering for friends and family will be held outdoors this summer.
