Many nieces and nephews and very special friends, both in NL and Kingston, ON

In 2018 mom returned to her home in St. John’s NL after spending 30 years in Kingston ON.  Mom truly loved Ontario and spoke lovingly of the family gatherings and friends that she had made there.   The past two years have been so wonderful; mom has done so much in that short time with her family and friends, those memories will last us all a lifetime.

We would like to thank family physician Dr. Kelly Carew for care over the past two years.  Also we wish to thank the nurses and Drs. at the HSC 4SA and the PCU at the Miller Centre for your compassion and care during this very difficult time.

Cremation has taken place. The family will be receiving visitors at Carnell’s Funeral Home, 329 Freshwater Road from 10 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Thursday February 13th. Funeral Service will be held on Saturday, February 15th 2020 at 11:00 a.m. from the Carnell Memorial Chapel. Interment to take place at a later date.

Flowers gratefully accepted or donations in her memory may be made to Ronald McDonald House or a charity of one’s choice.

So sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing and thinking of your family at this difficult time. I met Ruby in the hospital on January 9, 2020 . We were in the same room on the 4th floor (South) at the HSC. She was an enjoyment to be around. We shared many stories and had lots of laughs. I admired for her humour, strength and positivity. While I knew her for a very brief time, she will leave a lasting impression. Now she is my guardian angel.
