She was predeceased by her siblings John, Donald and Mary and is survived by her siblings David and George, many nephews and nieces including Mark & Shirley Fox. A graveside interment has been held in Abbotsford on Nov. 25. The family thanks the excellent staff & residents of Tabor Home who were Ruth’s home for the final years of her life.
