Ruth Marilyn Edgar (McCormick) age 85, of Wolseley, Saskatchewan passed away September 13, 2019 with her family by her side. She was born April 27, 1934 to the late Frank and Gladys McCormick in Grenfell, Saskatchewan.

Reception for family and friends will follow in St. James C.E. Centre. A private interment will be held in Ellisboro Cemetery. Ruth was predeceased by her husband Donald Edgar, sister Joyce and brother David, her sister-in-law Deanna Roche, brother-in-law Robert Roche, brother-in-law Clare Pomeroy, half brother-in-law Malcolm Edgar, sister-in-law Katie Edgar and grandson Dean Edgar.

Ruth is survived by her sons Dave (Laurie), Rod (Renette) and Brad; grandchildren Chelsie (Chris) Nomeland and great-grandsons Nicholas and Zachary, Brandon Edgar (Danielle), Danean Edgar (Kyle), Derek Edgar, Kaitlyn Fetch (Tyler), Jordan Beck (Karissa) and great-granddaughter Mya and Kyle Beck; her sisters-in-law Dorothy Pomeroy and Mona (Jim) Jamieson; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Ruth attended Carr Hill School and completed her high school in Wolseley. After graduation she moved to Regina and worked as an office assistant at Coca Cola. This is where she met the love of her life and married Don in 1958. In 1962 they moved to her family farm in the Ellisboro district until they moved to Wolseley in 1996. She was an active member of St. James United Church.

Ruth truly enjoyed the farm, the animals, the harvest and the outdoor life. She also enjoyed visiting family, friends and neighbours. Their camping trips with neighbours and friends or visiting mom’s high school group were always a lot of laughs.

Our families would like to thank the staff of Hayes Haven and Lakeside Nursing Home for their excellent care during Ruth’s stay.

Donations in Ruth’s name may be made to the Ellisboro Cemetery Fund, c/o Tracy Coueslan, Box 596, Wolseley, SK S0G 5H0
