Passed on November 18, 2020
March 19, 1935 – November 18, 2020 On the morning of November 18th at Grace Hospital Mom peacefully, passed away following complications from hip surgery.
Mom was born in Teulon on March 19, 1935 to Irene and Gordon Kennedy. Mom and Dad were married in 1956 and lived in Stonewall having two sons, Ken and Bob. In 1969 we moved to Teulon. Mom was an avid baker and always had something to donate to a shower, funeral or event that was happening in the community. Through the years Mom loved to entertain and was always happiest when family or friends would stop in for coffee and a sampling of her baking or better yet, a Sunday dinner.
Once Dad was retired, Mom looked forward to the winter months as, most years it would involve a trip to Palm Springs, CA where they both enjoyed the warm sun and visiting with family and friends, but we think Mom enjoyed the shopping most of all as sometimes the trunk and the back seat would be loaded down by the time they arrived home, everyone got a gift!!
Mom was predeceased by beloved grandson Jonathan, husband Gordon and brother Jack.
Left to Cherish her memory are her sons, Ken (Brenda), Bob (Kim) and much- loved grandchildren: Kent (Alycia), Brandon and Kaliegh, Mom was especially close to her loving sister Lois Ritchie (Bill). Many nieces and nephews will also cherish the memory of Auntie Ruth.
The family would like to thank Dr. Loudon and the wonderful staff at Goodwin Lodge and Teulon Memorial Hospital for their care and compassion towards Mom. As well we would like to thank Dr. Abbot and the staff on 4N at the Grace Hospital for taking such good care of Mom while she was there.
Cremation has taken place, due to Covid-19 a service will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Goodwin Lodge Foundation or a charity of your choice.
My heartfelt sympathy to the family. Ruth and I did a lot of reminiscing about the times working at Great West Life with a lot of laughs. Ruth was a good, kind person as well as a terrific cook and host. With special thoughts from Doris DeRyck
A lovely lady was a description of Ruth. We have lost a community person that always seemed to have a smile and a cheerful Hello. It was an honor to have known Ruth. As a family, know you are not alone during this difficult time. May God give you strength and courage to wake each morning with a smile that your Mom and Dad are once again together. Rest in Peace.
