Condolences & Memories (2 entries)

  • I only met Ruth once but Ian always talked about her when I worked with him. Her love of crafts. Sorry I didn’t get to know more of her. When we met she was a great lady and we talked all night - Posted by: Melanie Heard (Friend of husband) on: Feb 04, 2023

  • My family lived next door to the Taylors on Juno St. in Winnipeg and have so many fond memories of little Ruthie. She was a special little girl to my mother. After we moved, I lost contact with Ruth until I saw her again at my Mother's 90th birthday in 1988. My condolences to Ruth's husband and her boys, and sisters - so sad to lose a wife and a loving Momma. Blessings!!!
