Going to miss those sparkling blue eyes that are filled with laughter, love and a hint of mischief. With always a welcoming smile, she quickly wrapped you in a hug and moved you towards the kitchen for some food! And boy could she pull a meal together. Those Ruest girls sure know how to pull a meal together! .... and laugh!!! Boy can they laugh! That soft invigorating chuckle and sparkling blue eyes full of life is my beautiful memory to be blessed with!!!! Love you dearly Matante ❤️

MonOncle, Tina, Stephen and families... wish we were there and are with you in spirit 🙏.
Miss you. Love and hugs xox ❤️

Most sincere sympathies to uncle Roger, Tina & Brian, Steven & Cindy and extended families. We sincerely wish we could be there with you all during these hard times. I'll always remember matante's kindness of heart and beautiful smile and how she always wanted us cousins to speak french to you, Tina and Steve, whenever you visited so that you both could learn some french. I always refused by saying: "Non non matante. I need to practice my english" and she wouldn't argue and just smiled. She was a sweetheart❤️ I will miss her dearly.
Uncle Roger, thank you for loving her as much as you always have and taking such great care of her. She will be watching over all of you now I'm sure. Sending you all great big {{hugs}} and all our Love
