E. Ruth Denner (nee O’Neill)

Passed on January 4, 2021

It is with beloved memories we announce the passing of E. Ruth Denner (nee O’Neill) of Stony Mountain, MB. Ruth passed peacefully on January 4, 2021 at the age of 82 years.

Ruth is survived by her daughter Karen, close family friend Roxanne, and son-in-law Trevor. She was predeceased by her husband of 59 years Ron, and her eldest daughter Kimberley.

Ruth was a kind and gentle woman with a ready smile and a heart full of love. She was a devoted wife and mother raising her family in the close knit community of Stony Mountain and was very involved with the community. Running the canteen at the Rec Centre and receptionist at the local doctors office to name a couple. She touched many lives and was like a second mom to many of her children’s friends.

Ruth was very well known for her knitting, a hobby she loved and started at a very young age while growing up on a farm by Argyle MB. Over the years she attended many craft sales in Manitoba with her beautiful knitting as well as donating much of it to those in need. Life will not be as full without her in it but the times we shared were a blessing and truly the greatest gift. Love you forever Mom.

The knitter’s Prayer I pray when risen from the dead, I May in glory stand Perhaps a crown upon my head, But four needles in my hand. I never learned to sing or play, So let no harp be mine, From childhood to my dying day Plain knitting’s been my line. And so, accustomed to the end, In plying useful stitches, I’ll be content, if given to knit, The little angel’s britches.

Cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held.
