Elizabeth Ann Finnegan (nee Ruggeri), 63, of Saint Louis, MO, passed away on August 1, 2023. She was born on September 13, 1959.
Elizabeth’s greatest passion was her family, for whom she was a tireless and selfless caregiver.

Elizabeth gave generously of her time and creative talents and spent nearly two decades serving in many different volunteer roles at her alma mater, Bayless Schools, while her children were students in the district. She was a niece, aunt, cousin, and friend to many.
