Ruth VAN DYK

VAN DYK, Ruth

February 4, 1959 – January 22, 2015


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ruth VanDyk, January 22, 2015. Ruth was born and raised in Harrison Mills. She later completed her schooling in Agassiz, BC. Being committed to her church, Ruth enjoyed all her volunteer hours with her friends and family in Langley, BC. Ruth’s motto in life was to always make people laugh. She loved life. Ruth was diagnosed with ALS in 2013 and she was the bravest in her day to day challenges with having the disease. She was predeceased by her father, Mathys VanDyk. Ruth will also be fondly

remembered by her mother Johanna VanDyk and all of her siblings, Nanda (Gus),

Gonda (Marinus), Nettie (John), Dolores (Harv), and Erik (Liz). She also will be missed by all her nieces and nephews and also dear friends who were of great support and love in all her days. Willy, Cindy and Margaret …thank you!

A farewell gathering for Ruth will take place on Thursday January 29, 2015 at 1:00 pm in the Willoughby  Christian Reformed Church, 20525 72 Ave. Langley.
