Ruth Dean 1945 - 2021
It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Ruth Dean (nee Freeman) of Lloydminster, AB, on July 7, 2021 at the age of 75. Her memory lives on through her loving family, Rob, Jesse, Deborah, Richard (Karen) and Darwin. Ruth's roots started in Weyburn, Saskatchewan where she grew up on the family farm with her brother and sister and attended Weyburn Collegiate Institute. Over the past twenty-five years she worked for the Lloydminster Public School Board as a secretary at Bishop Lloyd Middle School and loved working with her colleagues and welcoming students every August. She had a love for travel and every Christmas a sunny vacation was planned to escape from the cold winter. She had a love for dogs, completing play-by-plays with her brother and sister on Blue Jay and Roughrider games and of course curling bonspiels. She was predeceased by her parents, Elton and Aileen Freeman. And in keeping with her wishes, Ruth will be interred with her Mom and Dad in Weyburn, SK at a later date. The family wishes to thank the doctors and care staff at The Mazankowski Alberta Heart Institute for their amazing care and treatment. A donation in Ruth's memory may be sent to University Hospital Foundation, Cross Cancer Institute or the Lloydminster SPCA.
