    I knew Ruth as a colleague in the early 1970’s when we worked at the Victoria Family Centre (VFC). I recall how much all of the staff appreciated Ruth for the depth of her dedication to young children. What spoke loudly about her knowledge and experience with young chilren and their families was the repeated visits to the Family Centre by two senior provincial officials from the Department of Education who developed the Early Childhood Education (ECS) in Alberta. They came to see Ruth because she was already doing what they wanted for all young Alberta children.

    Ruth was a very special and gifted person who had a lasting influence on children, families and the staff. You can be proud of her accomplishements even in the sadness of her passing.

    Dear Mr. and Mrs. Fossli,

    I was sad to hear of Mormor’s passing. I hope you are finding some rest and peace even in these sad days.
