PERRAS, Ruby Irene

May 15, 1933 – November 9, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mother, Ruby Perras, of Calgary, at the age of 79 years.

She was by far the strongest person we have ever known. Her strength, positive attitude, good nature and generosity will continue to inspire us.

Ruby is survived by her daughter Susan (Anthony) Graup of Calgary, son Michael Perras of Cornwall, ON and daughter Maureen (Jim) Harvey of Ucluelet, B.C. She also leaves behind her sister Iona (Bob) McEwen of Cold Lake, AB and five grandchildren.

There will be no service. A private gathering will be held at a later date. Please forward condolences through www.mcinnisandholloway.com.

In living memory of Ruby Perras, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park.

Offer Condolence for the family of PERRAS, Ruby Irene

    Years ago, your Mom was a weekly visitor to our house, when she was in Cornwall on her grocery run. My Mom was still in touch with her and always enjoyed the holiday time for their annual “chat”. Shane, myself, and my Mom (Blanche McRae) offer our sincere condolences.
