Ruth was a world traveler, volunteer, YMCA advocate, card player, cross country skier, knitter, parasailer, gardener and a great friend to many.
Thank you to Dr. Paul Murphy, and thanks to the nurses and caregivers at Sechelt Hospital & Christenson Village.
Ruth will be missed. Hers was a life well lived.
