It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ruth Ann Jones (nee Evans) wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, on April 30, 2014 at the age of 80 years.
She was born in Montreal, where she met and married Donald Jones. They migrated west in 1977, and after twenty-eight years of marriage, Donald passed away in 1983. She was known for her battles with the elements trying to keep tomato plants alive in Calgary’s unique climate.
Ruth is survived by her son Andy and his wife Eva Jones; three daughters, Beverley Jones, Betty-Anne (Elizabeth) and her husband Ken McBey of Ontario and Alison Jones and partner Kevin Hughes; grandchildren Danielle Polsom (Lance Edwards-Hampton), Kris Polsom (Daina Yelle), David Jones, and Matthew Jones; great-grandchildren Isabelle Beaulac and baby Cherie Polsom. Ruth was predeceased by her brothers Stanley Evans and William Evans and survived by her sister Edith Strathdee.
