It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mom, grandma and great-grandma on July 15, 2019, surrounded by her children.
Ruth was predeceased by her husband Rudy, her four sisters, numerous in-laws, nephews and nieces. She is survived by her son Chris (Kellie), daughters, Kim (Gary) and Julie (Robert); grandchildren, Andrea (Robert), Colin (Crystal), Kara (Tony) and Bailee (Matt); great-grandchildren, Devin, Spencer, Ryder and Dawsyn; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Mom was a strong, feisty and independent woman who loved family gatherings. She was a fierce supporter of all animal causes, and was an avid NBA, tennis and curling fan. Mom never backed down from a good debate, and had her own strong opinion on most things. Mom loved her Wednesday night bingo's and trips to the casino with her good friend Stella, and was grateful for the many friends she had made at her residence.
The family would like to thank the staff at Concordia Hospital for the care and compassion showed to Mom during her stay.
A Celebration of Life will take place at Cropo Funeral Chapel (1442 Main Street) on Tuesday, July 30, 2019 at 7:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, it was Mom's wish that donations be made to the Winnipeg Humane Society.

  • We were very sorry to hear about Grandma Ruth. She used to babysit Molly when Kim went on her fishing trips and Lawry would talk to her when she sat outside. We will miss her smiling face & good humour. Lawry & Gloria Schmidt - Posted by: Lawry & Gloria Schmidt (Friend of the family) on: Jul 20, 2019
