(nee Goodman)

March 28, 1931 – Feb. 7, 2011

It is with heavy hearts and great sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Ruby, at the age of 79 years.

Ruby will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her husband of 60 years, Bruce Ervin Cowan; daughters: Donna (Dusty) Duck; grandchildren: Candice (Dustin) Chambers and Dustin Duck, of Devon AB; and Paula Flattery; grandchildren: Kristin and Sarah Flattery of Winnipeg, MB; great-grandchildren: Gavin, Mikayla, Cole and Sage. She is also survived by her sisters, Disa Brown and Julie Zatorsky, Winnipeg, and Marge (Tom) Steven of Maple Ridge, BC and her brother, Don Goodman, Winnipeg along with numerous nieces and nephews.

Ruby devoted her life to her family. Crocheting and baking were her passions. She was very witty and had a great sense of humour, which will be remembered by all.

The family is very grateful to the staff of the Waverly Seniors Village for their wonderful care and compassion.

No service by request.

If friends so desire, donations to the Parkinson’s Society would be gratefully appreciated
