Ruth (née Gardner) passed away in Almonte, Wednesday March 6, peacefully, in hospital after a long illness. Ruth was a loving and devoted mother to Hugh and Bruce. She is survived by her sister Eula Jackson (Clayton) of Texas, and predeceased by her parents Reginald and Jean Gardner. Ruth was predeceased by lifelong friends Betty Ashfield, Kay Duncan, and Erva Arbuckle, and dearly missed by Joan Carr: known collectively to one another as, “us”. Ruth was a long time member of Kiwanis Ladies Club. She was awarded the Queen’s Golden Jubilee Medal for years of service fundraising for the Navy League of Canada and Royal Canadian Sea Cadets. Born in Montreal, December 30, 1926, Ruth will be remembered by family and friends for her warmth, intelligence and sense of humour, and her love of books, history, and travel. At her request, no public services will be held. Gifts in Ruth’s memory to the Almonte General Hospital, in gratitude for their kind and gentle care, the Lanark Branch of the Navy League of Canada, the Gurkha Welfare Trust, or to another veteran’s or women’s charity would be appreciated by the family.
