So sorry to learn Ruth has passed on. Ruth was such a nice person. She was a good tennis player and was in the yoga class in Cumberland. She was excellent Treasurer for the Cumberland Village Tennis Club for many many years. Unfortunately, Ruth will miss the naming ceremony for the Tennis Courts about May 11th which will honor Betty Von Tobel with whom Ruth played tennis. Ruth will be sadly missed.

I have many fond memories of curling with Ruth at the Cumberland Curling Club and going on a few bonspiels with her.

She was such a kind and gentle person

Tante (auntie) Lillemor was the last of my parent’s generation to pass away, 26 years after her brother Per. Even though she moved to Canada before I was born, she has been a strong presence in the family. My first memory of her is waiting at the docks for the ship arriving from America. She brought exciting presents for Christmas: first a mechanic fire truck and then more grown up presents such as one of the first albums by Joan Baez.
Tante Lillemor visited every fall for many years. Canada didn’t seem so far away after all. We only visited Ottawa once, where we met Karin and Gordon and their families. For the last couple of years we have spoken to Lillemor on the phone on her birthday on the 23rd of December, even last year. Merely weeks before she passed away we spoke on Karin’s phone. She impressed right up until the end speaking Norwegian well. I will remember her as a strong and independent woman. Rest in peace, tante Lillemor.

Sincere condolences to Ruth’s family. I met Ruth at the Cumberland Yoga around 2009 when I retired. She was an amazing lady, full of energy, easy to talk to and so knowledgeable, describing her country when she came to Canada from Norway etc. Such an active lady, up until when I saw her last December at a Christmas lunch for the group in a restaurant.
She will be missed by many. Rest in peace dear Ruth. We will never forget you.
