I was deeply saddened to hear of Ruth’s passing. Being the wife of our first full time minister at Garrison Road United Brethren Church in FortErie, Ontario, she was a wonderful addition to our church family there. Also she
started and led our choir for all the time that she was there.

Our sympathies to Doug and his family and to Elaine and her family also.

Fondly
Dianne (Thierfeldt) Thyret and Edgar Thyret

I am so sorry to hear of Ruth's passing. She was such a wonderful person. My husband, Al, knew Ruth from tutoring with her at adult education. I had the pleasure of knowing Ruth from my working at Tipton Place. Rest in peace, dear Ruth.

Love and prayers,

Ann and Al Sims
