Passed peacefully away August 30, 2020 at home. Daughter of the late Hubert and Joan (Hickman) Herder. Predeceased by husband Gordon Laws in 2005 and sister Gail Gushue in 2010. Leaving to mourn: daughters Gillian Kennedy (Dan), Robin Laws and Jamie Laws. Grandchildren Connor and James Kennedy of Toronto, sister Ginny Russo (Dan) of Pennsylvania and dear cousin and friend Randy Bell (Ginny) of CBS. Ruthie will be greatly missed by a large circle of great friends and relations. A very special thank you to Barbie Mosher and Maureen Anonsen for their unwavering support. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to a charity of one’s choice. A celebration of life to follow at a later date.
