RUTH MILNE OAKLEY March 7, 1926 - October 15, 2018 It is with sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Ruth on October 15, 2018 at Riverview Health Centre. Ruth was predeceased by her parents, Alexander and Georgina; her sister Dora and brother-in-law Gordon Easton; her sister Jean and brother-in-law Ken Scovell; her brother George Oakley and his wife Mary, and her niece Carol and her husband Joe Rizzo. She will be lovingly remembered by her nephew David Easton (Natalie); her niece Sandra Oakley (Wayne Guenther), and her Easton and Rizzo great-nieces and great-nephews and their families. Ruth was born and raised in Winnipeg and after graduation from high school she started work as a bookkeeper at Great West Saddlery. After leaving Great West Saddlery she went to work as the bookkeeper at the Carleton Club where she was employed for over 25 years. She left the Carleton Club to work from home providing bookkeeping services to a number of small businesses until her retirement. Ruth loved the family cottage near Whitemouth when she was growing up and had fond memories of the summers she spent at the cottage with her family. She loved animals, gardening and riding her bike around the neighbourhood. The family would like to thank the staff at Riverview Health Centre for their care and compassion. In keeping with Ruth's wishes cremation has taken place and no formal service will be held. A private family interment will be held at Elmwood Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in memory of Ruth to the CNIB, Riverview Health Centre or the Winnipeg Humane Society.
