Always loved our chats and helping her out when ever she needed. She was a great girl down to earth and a great snice of humor.

I always enjoyed chatting with Ruth. She was one of the nicest ladies I have met working at Chateau Cornwall. We always found something to share a giggle or two! I will miss her smile! Rest In Peace my friend.

It feels like just the other day I was a kid running around your yard in the country and playing with all the tricky puzzles that Grandpa would collect. Fast forward today thinking back to how I have grown up and shared rich experiences with you and Grandpa that will remain in my memories forever, it still is not easy to come to terms with the loss of you in our lives. Nonetheless I am grateful that you were my Grandma and thank you for being you! Love, Jeff.

Taken from us far too quickly, my mother invested all of herself to our small family. She, and my late father, whom she loved unconditionally, maintained humble but decent lives in the pursuit of dignity and comfort for me throughout my life as their one and only son. I owe all of my life’s achievements to the sacrifices they made and the opportunities they provided me from the very first day I was brought into this world. I love you and will miss you forever! Your son, Gord.
