HILL, Ruth (nee Loewen)

Thank you for all the thoughts and prayers. It’s never easy saying goodbye, especially to someone who holds a big piece of our hearts. Our Mom/wife was the most amazing lady. She was so loved by everyone she met. She lit up the room and was always the life of the party. She had a way of making everyone feel so special. Ruth was born December 23, 1946 to the late Betty (Tiessen) and Peter Loewen. Ruthie was loved and will be greatly missed by her husband Paddy and her children Jim (Julie), Andy (Anna) and Elizabeth. She was worshipped and adored by her grandchildren Ethan, Aaron, Olivia, Avery and Drew. She was cherished by her brother Don (Rita) Loewen and brothers-in-law Joe (Louise) Hill and Jack (Donna) Hill. She was the favourite Auntie Ruth to all of her nieces and nephews. Ruth was the beloved niece to her Aunts and Uncles. To her many cousins and friends she was the witty, smiling person they all loved to visit with.

If love could have saved her she would have lived forever.

We are honouring Ruthie’s wishes in that there will be no traditional funeral or visitation. Cremation has taken place and a private celebration of her life will take place at a later date. If you wish to donate in Ruth’s memory, the family has asked that donations be made to Transition to Betterness.
