RUDDOCK, Marie Bretton (nee Weaver)

April 10, 1933 – Derbyshire, England
May 6, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

On May 6, 2018 Marie Bretton Ruddock (nee Weaver) closed the last chapter of a long and good life at the age of 85 years.

Marie was born a fighter and faced every challenge in her life with strength and determination. She was born in Derbyshire, England and grew up during the Second World War. Marie had fascinating stories about how her family had managed during those years.

In 1952, Marie married Jim Ruddock and moved to Scotland where the couple’s children, Jen and Les were born. In 1958, the family immigrated to Ottawa, ON.

Marie was an amazing Granny, playing an important role in the lives of her grandchildren and their parents. She was a fearless adventurer, an accomplished crafter, and a great friend, who served her community.

Marie is remembered by her daughter and son-in-law Jennifer and Wayne of Ottawa, ON; granddaughters Stephanie (Josh) of Spencerville, ON and Jordan of Whistler, BC; and daughter-in-law Anne Marie of Calgary, AB. She is also survived by her brothers and sisters-in-law Roger and Elizabeth of England and Andrew and Jane of Candiac, QC; and extended family and friends. Marie was predeceased by her son Les in 2012, her husband James in 1984, and her brother Tony in 1960.
