Ruth was a long-standing member of St. Mark’s United Church in Whitby, and loved participating in many activities that helped the membership and her community throughout the years.

The night before she passed, Ruth referred to the doctors and nurses of Lakeridge Health Oshawa as angels.

The family extends their utmost appreciation to these essential healthcare workers for their assistance in her care and final moments.

Ruth’s favorite place in the world was up north at the Bus, where she fed the birds and communed with nature; this will be her final resting place.
There will be no service at this time. Private family arrangements.
Donations in Ruth’s memory may be made to The Lakeridge Health Foundation, The Heart and Stroke Foundation or to The Canadian Cancer Society.
