March 19, 1935 - November 18, 2020
Mom was born in Teulon on March 19, 1935 to Irene and Gordon Kennedy. Mom and Dad were married in 1956, and lived in Stonewall, having two sons, Ken and Bob. In 1969, we moved to Teulon.
Mom was an avid baker, and always had something to donate to a shower, funeral or event that was happening in the community. Through the years Mom loved to entertain, and was always happiest when family or friends would stop in for coffee and a sampling of her baking, or better yet, a Sunday dinner.
Once Dad was retired, Mom looked forward to the winter months as, most years it would involve a trip to Palm Springs, CA where they both enjoyed the warm sun and visiting with family and friends, but we think Mom enjoyed the shopping most of all, as sometimes the trunk and the back seat would be loaded down by the time they arrived home, everyone got a gift!!
Mom was predeceased by beloved grandson Jonathan; husband Gordon; and brother Jack. Left to cherish her memory are her sons, Ken (Brenda), Bob (Kim); and much loved grandchildren: Kent (Alycia), Brandon and Kaliegh. Mom was especially close to her loving sister Lois Ritchie (Bill). Many nieces and nephews will also cherish the memory of Auntie Ruth.
The family would like to thank Dr. Loudon and the wonderful staff at Goodwin Lodge and Teulon Memorial Hospital for their care and compassion towards Mom. As well, we would like to thank Dr. Abbot and the staff on 4N at the Grace Hospital for taking such good care of Mom while she was there.
Cremation has taken place. Due to Covid-19, a service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Goodwin Lodge Foundation, or a charity of your choice.

Our deepest sympathy to Ken & Brenda, Bob & Kim, Lois & Bill and families. Ruth was a lovely lady. Thinking of you all at this difficult time!
