My condolences to Ruth's family. She was a great neighbour, we all missed her when she left Talbot Drive in Port Hope.
Rest in Peace dear Ruth.

Ruth and I met almost 30 years ago when she came to work at Consumers Gas. We had a friendship right away. A few times Ruth and Bob watched our dog when we went on a trip. When we both were retired, Ruth was in Port Hope and I was in the Belleville area. We met for lunch, visited at each other's home and our dogs played together. When she went to Harmony (which was a great place) she often said she "was content there". I visited her a few times and saw that her and Maddie were well liked. She was a loyal and good friend to me and I will miss her.
She talked of her family and grandchildren often so I feel I know all about you all. My thoughts are with you. Love Ruth Bellamy
