ARMITAGE, Ruth H.
The Guest Book is expired.
Mom Armitage died today. She fought hard to be with us up until she drew her last breath. In that last hour she was very still; her eyes were open, she was quiet, she was talking with God. We, her family, sat by her and held her hand as she walked up to Heaven. We let her know that we loved her, she was a great mother and she will live on in all of us. She heard our words. Peacefulness overcame her. She slipped away in a moment. We will be with her forever. Predeceased by her husband Hollis (1991), son Bill (2003), and grandson Bruce Rushmere (2007). Loving mother to Doris Benko, Betsy Berrisford (Ian), Peggy Reimer (Ray), Judi Wilson (Steve), and Caroline Taylor (Terry). Mother-in-law to Dorothy Kavanaugh, and Rose Emery. Proud Grama of 22 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren, and 4 great-great-grandchildren. Dear sister to Frank (Irene), Eugene (Shirley), Allen (Jean), Dorothy Kilgor (the late Jim). Ruth was a bookkeeper her entire life. She was known for her gentle ways, wonderful sense of humour and singing in church choirs. She enjoyed time with her family, especially Friday Night Potlucks. She was our #1 Trekkie! The family wishes to thank the staff and volunteers of Huron Lodge for their compassionate care of Ruth. Visitation will take place at
