(nee STERNA)

It is with heavy hearts that we share that Mom left us peacefully on September 21, 2022 in Winnipeg at the age of 90 years.
Mom was born in Brunkild on March 11,1932 to William and Margaret Sterna, an only child, spending her early days in Brunkild until she met Dad.
Mom leaves behind the love of her life, husband Ed of 64 years; her four children, Cliff (Sylvia), Keith, Colleen (Mike), Kevin (Diane); her grandchildren, Marina, Sierra and Katrina. Mom was predeceased by her grandson Tanner in 2020.
After meeting Dad and getting married on June 6, 1958, Mom and Dad settled in Winnipeg, spending the last 56 years on McMeans Avenue in Transcona.
Mom was a stay at home mom, taking care of her home and the family. A daily routine was Mom's passion for baking. You could be guaranteed that a fresh dessert was ready on the counter daily for supper. Chocolate chip cookies, Apple pie and Cherry cheesecake will never taste the same.
Mom enjoyed her time with her family. Whether it was camping trips, fishing trips, Sunday drives or yard sales, she was in for it, she enjoyed them all. Mom and Dad took many road trips to Stettler, AB to visit family.
Our family would like to send a warm thank-you to the staff at Middlechurch Personal Care Home for the love, support and care that they provided and showed Mom. Much love goes out to Merrilin for her lifelong love and devotion to our Mom.
A service will be held at 10:00 a.m. on Friday, September 30 at Green Acres Funeral Home, Hwy # 1 East at Navin Road, Winnipeg.
In lieu of flowers, donations in Ruth's memory can be made to a charity of the donor's choice.
