    Sorry to read about Ruth’s passing. I attended Stage West with Ruth and always enjoyed seeing her. We met shortly after we both became widows. I’m sorry I won’t be able to attend her memorial service. I know she had a large extended family that will miss her lovely smile and happy disposition. Always remember she loved you all very much and keep in mind all the happy and wonderful times you had together.

    To Ruth Jones’ family,
    My husband Don and I, Yvette, and my daughter, Johanne, from St.Bruno offer you our deepest sympathy. I knew Ruth by bus driving for Grisé Transport in St.Bruno. She was a nice collegue. We kept in touch all these years by mainly writing Xmas cards. I did not receive one this year so I thought maybe something happened… For sure, she enjoyed talking about you all and I learned all about her family by her letters. I will keep found memories of her and of her ability of story telling. You will sure miss her vitality and the love she had for her family.
    Love, Yvette Mondou
