Richardson, Ruth B.
Rochester: Ruth B. Richardson, a native of Rochester, passed away on December 14, 2009. The daughter of Benjamin and Minnie Millicent Bickle, she was predeceased by her husband William, who she adored, and her brother John. She is survived by her sisters-in-law, Laura McLeish of London, Ontario, and Margurite Richardson of Fergus, Ontario along with three generations of nieces and nephews in Canada. Ruth was a long term employee of Eastman Kodak in Rochester and a member of Christ Episcopal Church in Rochester. Until her retirement she cherished the days she was able to spend at the family cottage in Brighton, Ontario. Ruth had a marvelously infectious laugh, was constantly curious and generous to all. She had a passion for the arts and was a life long member of the Memorial Art Gallery which she visited regularly since the age of four. She had been living independently at the Episcopal Senior Living Community-River Edge Manor where she enjoyed outstanding support and kindness from the staff, residents and her companion care providers.
Friends are invited to attend a memorial service at the Chapel of the Good Shepard at the Episcopal Church Home, 505 Mt. Hope Avenue, at 11:00 AM, on December 23rd.
