So sorry to hear the news of Ruth's passing. Our paths crossed at Eagle Ridge Hospital where she volunteered at the Manor and I was with the Auxiliary. Ruth and Ernie were neighbours at Camelot first with my Mom, Clara Baker, and later when my daughter Bobbi and I lived at Camelot. They were both lovely people. My condolences to your family.

I am so sorry to hear about Ruth's passing. She was a lovely lady, a wonderfully kind Manor volunteer and I loved when she strolled or rolled by my door on a daily basis.....that was one of the highlights of my day having a little chat with her. My deepest condolences to the family. Carmen Bressanutti

You taught us to love animals and be kind to them
Your Easter chocolates
The way you made moving to the prairies an exciting adventure
Your homemade soup, party pinwheel and shepherd’s pie

To my wonderful Aunt, whom I always enjoyed chatting with; thank you for being part of my world. You brought thought, compassion, kindness & love into my world; and I thank you for that. Your daughters have taken on your tradition of reaching out with such kindness towards me and Uncle Gordon's family. You are the last to leave us and now you will join, Edith, Alice, Nora & Gordon. I know they have already greeted you with love & togetherness, as you all, now, watch over us all.
Love Sally
