Biography: Ruth-Anne Miller





Peg Phillips portrays Ruth-Anne Miller, a wise storekeeper who dispenses psychological insight with each purchase. A woman who has lived through it all and has learned to appreciate life for everything it has to offer, Ruth-Anne provides a constant in an always turbulent town.

Proprietor of a one-stop shop which serves as everything from the library, post office, local market, to the video store, Ruth-Anne's quiet strength, wise words, and life experiences guide the town through their many crazy predicaments.

She has two sons: Matthew, an investment banker (and disappointment to Ruth-Anne), and a poet.
