Ruth Ann Donovan Bond said Bon Voyage to us on March 13th, 2018. Ruth was an avid traveler and went on many marvelous trips with her husband of 59 years Roger. Now Ruth embarks on her greatest journey, that being her journey to paradise. There she can party with old friends, laugh, dance and celebrate unencumbered by any of the physical restrictions that advanced age brings. Ruth would say often that she wished no sadness at her departure but hoped instead that those who knew and loved her would remember her as the outgoing and funny person she was. Nothing was more important to Ruth than having a good time, laughing and sharing with friends. Ruth loved children and dedicated a large part of her adult life to teaching elementary school children in three states: Connecticut, Ohio and Georgia. After retiring from teaching in 1994 from St. Joseph’s School in Bristol, Connecticut, she spent many hours engaging with her five grandchildren all of whom she loved very much. She is survived by her husband Roger A.L. Bond of Singer Island, FL; her sons Robert A. Bond of Brooklyn, Craig W. Bond (Cynthia) of Avon, and her daughter Siri Bond (Xavier Ollat) of Riverside, CA; her five grandsons: Kevin (Katherine), Zachary, Max, Nathaniel and Joshua. She was predeceased by her brother William “Billy” Donovan. Calling hours will be held at Carmon Funeral Home & Family Center, 301 Country Club Rd., Avon on Sunday, March 18, 2018 from 2 to 5 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will be held Monday, March 19 at 11 a.m. at the Church of St. Ann, 289 Arch Road, Avon. Burial will follow in St. Ann's Cemetery in Avon. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations in Ruth Ann’s memory may be made to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation, Inc., 20 Batterson Park Road, Farmington, CT 06032 or at
