November 7, 1933 – January 2, 2021
It is with deep sadness and much love that we announce the passing of Ruby Weedon (Nee: Walls), on the evening of Friday, January 1st, 2021, at the age of 87. Ruby was born on the Walls family farm on Jane Street in King on November 7th, 1933. Her parents were Rita and Wesley Walls. Ruby is predeceased by her loving husband Vince (Bink). Ruby will be sorrowfully missed by her sister Marjorie Weedon (Horace) and cousins. She was an adored and cherished Aunt to her many nieces and nephews. She enjoyed cooking and baking her famous pies for holiday dinners, parties, and family gatherings. Ruby loved to watch game shows and she bowled for many years with her Richmond Hill league winning many trophies. She enjoyed dancing at the parties they hosted to Elvis and country music and most recently she had a huge attraction to Justin Bieber. Ruby was the most kind, warm, loving, and selfless person. She was a wonderful gentle soul and will be missed dearly. A small memorial for immediate family will be held and a Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.

My thoughts of Ruby are clear and many; but simply put it was like being with my favourite Aunt whenever she was near. While growing up I never called her Aunt Ruby. I'm sure she would have been fine with it, but maybe it's because she was more like an unnamed "Fairy Godmother" and in later years simply a wise older friend!
Although as an Aunt or Fairy Godmother or wise older friend, you would have thought Ruby could have told me about the candy cupboard?? It must have been reserved for my sisters Debby and Sharon!!

I have known Ruby since the day I was born as our family moved next door to Ruby and Bink before I was born. Some of my loveliest and fondest childhood memories are times spent with Ruby. Oh her candy cupboard was a child’s dream come true and we were allowed in there as often as we liked! Even after we moved away from Victoria Square I would spend a few days at Ruby’s on “summer vacation” even though we only lived about 15 minutes away! She always had a smile whenever we saw her. I last saw Ruby I believe 3 years ago when I was back home for a visit and as always her face lit up when I entered her room. She will always be held close in my heart forever. Love you Ruby

My mother Anne Collins and Ruby became life long best friends when we moved next door to Ruby and Bink in 1959. Though my mom now has dementia I would get her in to see Ruby a couple of times each year. Ruby was our childhood dream come true. Her candy cupboard was always stocked with white mints and chocolate rose buds. We spent Friday nights peering through her Eatons catalogues. The second last time we visited Ruby she was so excited to see mom her face lit up with radiant joy and her spirit seemed to lift her up from her chair. I told Cathy at the time that I will always hold that memory close to me. Our family story includes the love and kindness of Ruby.

So interesting- i wrote Ruby a letter on January 1st! Must have been thinking of her at the critical time. Ruby was the flower girl at my parents’ (Wes and Olive Hindle) wedding in 1937. Ruby is my mom’s 1st cousin, as is her dear sister Marjorie. My husband and I visited Ruby and Bink in Victoria Square. Missing our whole family now. Sending hugs to all.
