SCHULZ, Ruth Carol (nee Warkentin)
February 21, 1951 – October 24, 2016
With heartfelt sorrow we announce the passing of Ruth, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend. After a diagnosis of cancer 18 months ago, Ruth passed away peacefully, at home with family by her side on Monday, October 24, 2016. Ruth was born in Chilliwack and spent her early years in Chilliwack as well as in Kitchener and Lemington, Ontario. Ruth had degrees in both education & music and she taught passionately for 30 years in the Chilliwack School District. In her retirement, Ruth enjoyed painting, gardening, kayaking and serving others in her church and the community. She was a devoted grandmother and was deeply loved by her grandkids. She will be remembered for her adventurous spirit, her faith, joy and love of others. Ruth is survived by her husband of 44 years and love of her life, Dave; her children Jeff, Jody (Scott) & Laurie; and her grandchildren Adia, Caelan and Macey. She will also be lovingly remembered by many relatives and friends. A Memorial Service will be held on Saturday, October 29, 2016 at 1:30 at Central Community Church followed by an informal reception. In memory of Ruth, donations can be made to Sardis Doorway, a program for supporting local moms, where Ruth was a volunteer for the last 5 years. (Contact Sardis Community Church for donation info).
