The family would like to send a special thank you to Dr. G. Hendry and the staff at Van Horne Manor for their professional care and kindness. Ruth was a lady who dearly loved her family and friends, dogs of all kinds – even if they ate the occasional shower curtain – shopping and trips to the casino. A life well lived. A private service for family and friends will be arranged at a later date. Memorial donations may be made to the Perth & Smiths Falls District Hospital Foundation (Smiths Falls – Site). Arrangements are in the care of Blair & Son Funeral Directors, Smiths Falls 613-283-2800.
