Mom passed away on November 3 2012 leaving many friends and family who loved her. She had a passion for life and will be deeply missed. After her long fight she is now at peace in a better place.
Ruth was born in Turner Valley Alberta to parents John and Margaret (Calder) Fitzpatrick who had immigrated from Scotland. During WW11 she fell in love with a sailor named Victor Trueman and married him. Dad predeceased Mom in 1989. They lived in Calgary until 1968 and moved to Tsawwassen making many friends in both places. Mom loved sports and was a champion curler and avid golfer.
She loved her kids, grand-kids, and great-grand-kids, always concerned for their well-being and to know they were making the right choices.
Mom is survived by her two children Victoria and Stephen, daughter-in-law Edna, her grandchildren Michelle, Tracey, and Jonathan, her great-grandchildren Brandon, Josh, Jessica and Ashley; and her sister Thelma Rice.
The family wishes to thank the staff at the Delta Hospital Extended Care Unit for all the great care and support provided to Ruth.
A Family Service will be held on Saturday, November 10, 2012 at 1:00 pm at Delta Funeral Home, 5329 Ladner Trunk Road, Ladner, BC.
