Obituary of Ruth Doreen Woods

WOODS, Ruth Doreen (Nee MacNeill) March 18, 1929-April 7-2020 It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Ruth, in her 92nd year. After a life well lived and loved, Ruth went peacefully, at home surrounded by family. She is predeceased by her husband of 58 years, Norman C. Woods. (2011) Cherished mother of Joel, Gayle (Brian) and Gordon and loved by many extended family and friends. Born and raised in Sydney, Nova Scotia, Ruthie joined the Royal Canadian Air Force at the age of 23. She achieved the rank of Aircraft-woman First Class before meeting and marrying Norm in 1953. She enjoyed a very long and fulfilled life making many friends along the way, in all parts of the world. Besides her family and friends, her passions included travel, painting, live theatre and creative writing. Her kindness, generosity and sense of humour will be missed. Our hearts are shattered. May she rest in peace with God and his holy family. Her cup runneth over. Cremation at Mount Pleasant Cemetery in London where she will be reunited with Norm at a later date. A very special thank you to LIHN, VON especially Natalie and Florence and PSW's Cheryl and Emmy as well as Dr. Kanwar. And a very special thank you to Peggy Bloomfield at Mount Pleasant Cemetery.
