KIRWAN, Ruth Naomi Mary
Was the second of five children born in Ottawa to Gerald and Joan Kirwan. An independent woman who was uncompromising in her principles, she eschewed tradition in favor of pursuing a career path that sent her abroad and helped to satisfy her love for travel. She had a wonderful sense of humor and enjoyed a small, close group of friends who shared this, notably her siblings Joan McLaughlin, Margaret Roach, Gerald Kirwan, and John Kirwan. She will be fondly remembered by a host of nieces and nephews. As per Ruth's wishes, there will be a private family funeral service. Arrangements are entrusted with the Kelly Funeral Home - Somerset Chapel
585 Somerset St. W. (613)-235-6712
