RUTH VIVIAN ALDERSON (née COOK) December 27, 1930 - December 29, 2018 Ruth Alderson passed away peacefully in the loving arms of family on December 29, after a long life well lived. Ruth was a terrible driver, an amazing cook, eager investor, lover of Christmas morning, peacemaker, French fry aficionado, glorious dancer and tiny whirlwind of energy. She was a bright light who cherished her family above all else. Ruth's children, Terry, Lori and Lindy; grandchildren, Jennivieve/Jennifer (Jason), Kenny (Melissa) and Kyla (Graham); and beloved great-grandchildren, Meguire, Piper-Prairie, Poet, Paisley, Briar, Truett, as well as John will endeavour to keep her tenacious and joyful spirit alive as we mourn her earth side presence. We have no doubt that Ruth roller-skated into the loving arms of those who went before her: her husband Ken; Mom and Dad; and all of her siblings. Ruth's family will celebrate her life and spirit in the summer, when we'll be sure to have all her favourite things: family, laughter, little ones and food - most importantly ginger-ale, chocolate milk, Turtles and French fries. Ruth, the fun loving, roller-skating, dancing, joyful, easygoing dynamo will forever be alive in our hearts and memories. Thank you to the staff of Cedar House and Seven Oaks Hospital 4th floor.

  • To say Ruth was a bright light and a whirlwind of energy would be an understatement. We were neighbours of Ruth & Ken (in St. James). Although we hadn't seen her for many years, a beautiful soul is always remembered. - Posted by: Darlene & Ron Baxter (Friend) on: Jan 22, 2019
