Date of Passing: Dec 15, 2018Offer Condolences or Memory
RUTH MCFADDEN (nee ELMES) Ruth passed away peacefully on December 15, 2018 at the age of 89 years. Ruth is survived by her daughter Leslie Gentes (Paul); son Michael McFadden (Joanne); along with her grandchildren, Darin Gentes (Kate), Tamara Gentes Briggs, Matthew Gentes, Jack McFadden, Brett McFadden, Shanan McFadden and Amy McFadden; and great-grandsons, Ryan Gentes, Kaelan Briggs and Max Gentes. Ruth was predeceased by her husband Stan in 1994, as well as her brothers, Bill and Douglas Elmes. Ruth loved her little house on Stranmillis Avenue, built by her father, and it was there that she spent many years gardening and enjoying her family. Mom had such a big heart for both people and animals and was most happy when family came to visit. Her other passion was Bingo where she spent many evenings with her friends. Her final years were spent at Beacon Hill Lodge where she felt deeply cared for and her family would like to extend thanks and gratitude to the dedicated staff there. Thank you also to friends and family who kept in touch even when Mom's memory began to fail her. A private family service will be held. Donations can be made to the Juvenile Diabetes Canada (JDRF) at www.jdrf.ca in Mom's memory. www.voyagefuneralhome.com
