Bonnie Jean Ruzycki

20 January, 19448 April, 2021

Bonnie passed away peacefully at the age of 77 years with her Loving husband Fred at her side and in the company of her family at the Foothills County Hospice in Okotoks, Alberta on Thursday, April 8, 2021.

Bonnie was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother who enjoyed all her time spent with family and friends. Residing with Fred at their country home they built on Gladys Ridge near High River and travelling the world throughout their 45 years of marriage were some of their fondest and most memorable experiences that will never be forgotten. Bonnie enjoyed visiting, playing games both at home with friends & family accompanied with a tasty Rum cocktail, as well as games of chance at many establishments throughout her travels. She will be remembered lovingly by her friends and family as a fun, very kind-hearted special woman who loved profoundly and brought joy to everyone’s lives.

Bonnie is survived by and will forever be loved by her husband, Fred Ruzycki; her daughter Patti Nichols (Tim Tinsley); son Ron Farrow (Lonni Harper); her stepdaughter Nola Ruzycki-Berent (Adam Berent); step-son Blaine Ruzycki (Michelle Balic); eight grandchildren Stephanie, Darren, Sheldon, Kallyn (Brett), Anthony, Nicholas, Logan and Tyler and one great grandchild, Jacoby. Our fond and caring memories of you will be in our hearts and minds forever.

Bonnie will be joining her departed granddaughter Courtney; sisters Patricia and Marlene; brother Clayton; and parents Harold and Margaret Rix.

A private service will be held. The family greatly appreciates and wishes to thank the terrific staff at Foothills Country Hospice that looked after Bonnie (Mom) with such great care during her final days of life.

I lived with the Rix family from ages 2 to 14.
Bonnie took me under her wing and treated me like her little sister.
I was flower girl at her first Wedding.
After she moved out I use to love it when she came to visit and brought her yellow lab. The dog used to sleep at the foot of the bed.
Bonnie is the last of the Rix family to pass, an era will be missed.
Rest in Peace Bonnie and rejoice in your reunion with your family.
Condolences to her family left behind, take comfort in your shared memories. Many Blessings from Tina May
