Obituary of Ruth Riemer
It is with a profound sadness that the family of Ruth Riemer must announce her passing on January 17, 2022. Ruth will be remembered for her kindness and dedication to all those that she met. From her start in life in rural Saskatchewan near St. Walburg, Ruth saw her choice of career as a hairstylist take her across Western Canada working in Manitoba, Saskatchewan, and Alberta for almost 70 years. During that time Ruth worked both as a stylist but more importantly as an instructor of future hairstylists with nearly 50 years of her career being devoted to the training of future hairstylists. This role was something that Ruth took extremely seriously and was honoured to do, and she lives on in the lives of all of her students over the years. Ruth was preceded by husband, Harold; daughter, Tracey; as well as her sisters and brother, and her parents. She is survived by her son, Kevin, and numerous nieces, nephews, and close friends. They will all miss her greatly. At this time it has been decided to have a Celebration of Ruth’s Life later this year when things will allow for such a gathering. For those interested they can monitor the social media pages of Est-elle Academy for details. In lieu of flowers, a donation to the Shepherd’s Care Foundation ( or the Alzheimer Society of Alberta and Northwest Territories can be made.
