RUTH MONDELL Our beloved mother Ruth Mondell passed away peacefully on Saturday, January 27, 2001 at the Seven Oaks General Hospital. Ruth was born in Winnipeg in 1917, the only daughter of Minka and Samuel Etkin. Together with her brothers, Norman, Jack and Leonard she enjoyed a childhood rich in the warmth and affection of a loving family. In 1938 Ruth married Bernard Mondell. Family was the centre of her universe and the love she gave so fully was returned many times over. Ruth is lovingly remembered by her children, Sharon and Sid Wolchock, Penny Ganetsky, Vev Ganetsky, Errol and Jaye Mondell. Baba Ruth had a unique relationship with her grandchildren, Serena and Guy, Shauna, David, Morgan and Tracie, Brent, Tifiny and great-grandchildren, Matthew, Braden and Omri - and they adored her! A generous, caring woman, Ruth was a trusted and sincere friend. She will be remembered for her unconditional acceptance of everyone she met, her resolute manner, her thoughtfulness, her love of life and family. Funeral services were held at Rosh Pina Synagogue on Tuesday, January 30 with interment at Rosh Pina Memorial Park. Pallbearers were Vev Ganetsky, David Ganetsky, Morgan Ganetsky, Brent Mondell, Brian Etkin, Laurie Etkin, Mark Etkin and Marshall Etkin. Ruth has now joined her beloved Bernie. May she be at peace.
