Sheila Mahar

With sincere Thanks to Dear Auntie Ruth, whose patience I have admired since I was a young girl. Although very modest, she displayed class: for regular lunches, she made sandwiches with ham and lettuce, and filled the New Years dessert table with her baking. When visiting after my retirement, she made The Most Delicious Apple pie I ever ate (and I'm old!)! Devoted to her family, she was always interested in whatever news we kids brought home. She managed a lively family of five while Uncle Les was (often) away driving, and her happiest times were with her husband, who remains the love of her life. Now together again, may you continue to watch over us. With special affection to Ron, Rob, Ross, and Tracy, and wags to Belle. Sincere condolences, Sheila Mahar.

In all the years I have known Aunt Ruth, I never heard her raise her voice nor speak badly about anyone. In my mind that makes her an Angel. To Ron, Rob, Ross and Tracy,Steve and families, please accept our deepest sympathies. Love Elaine And Steve Marshall.
