(Nov. 8, 1910 – Mar. 7, 2011)
Our mother Ruth passed into the loving arms of Jesus on March 7, 2011 at Eden Rest Home in Chilliwack at the age of 100.
Mom was born in Enid, Oklahoma and migrated with her family to McCreary, Manitoba in 1916, where she met and married Albert Ledoux in 1933. In 1947 Mom and Dad moved west to Chilliwack and settled on a small acreage on Yale Rd. East. Mom and Dad joined Christ Luthern Church in 1947 and continued to be active in all facets of church life. Mom went to work at Eaton’s in 1956 and continued working there until the store closed.
Mom enjoyed baking, knitting, crocheting and spending time with her family. Mom and Dad travelled to the Palm Springs area for 22 years where they would spend the winter months.
Mom was predeceased by Albert, her husband of 67 years; her daughter Myrna; her sisters: Esther and Alma; and her brothers: Oswald and Ernie. She leaves behind to mourn her passing, sons: Morris (Verla) Ledoux, Larry (Penny) Ledoux, son-in-law Maurice (Myrna) Guilbault; nine grandchildren, 12 great-grandchildren; and five great-great-grandchildren. Her infectious smile will be missed by everyone.
There will be a Memorial Service at 11:00 AM, Tuesday March 22, 2011 at Christ Lutheran Church 9460 Charles Street, Chilliwack BC. A luncheon will be served after the service.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Ruth’s name to Christ Lutheran Church, Chilliwack, BC.
