September 23, 1929 - December 14, 2022
In loving memory ~
We'll not say goodbye but "Till we meet again" to our loving Mom, Nana & friend, Ruth.
A kind-hearted, soft-spoken yet strong-willed, independent soul, Ruth enjoyed many things over the years: a trip to beautiful Hawaii she would always remember, watching her favourite baseball team, the Toronto Blue Jays, travelling to Leavenworth, line dancing with her friends, walking & chatting with her best friend Dot, baking the best cookies ever for her grandchildren & spending the holidays with her great & great-great-grandchildren.
Thank you for many years of expert care by her doctor, Dr. Basson, who said she was like a grandmother to him. The nurses at CGH were so good to her & said they'd love to take her home with them. Ruth was predeceased by her husband, Gordon & son, Randy. We're comforted that they'll be together again.
