Ruth passed away on 27 Nov. at her home in Ottawa just a few months short of her 95th birthday. Predeceased by her five siblings and her husband Allan of almost 50 years and survived by her daughter Kathy (Doug), son Carl (Laurie), four grandsons and five great grandchildren. Ruth worked for many years in the Federal Government with perhaps her most memorable time spent at External Affairs during WW2. She also thoroughly enjoyed living out-of-country due to Allan’s RCAF postings to Germany and Washington, D.C. She was a loving wife, wonderful mother and generally just a great person that will be sadly missed by all those who had met her. Special thanks to her friends and staff at the Alta Vista Manor. A memorial service will be held at a date to be determined. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your charity of choice.
