She will be missed dearly by her cousins Catharine (Tom) Midgley and Fred (Lorna) Sheehy. Predeceased by her loving husband of 63 years Stu, and parents Norman & Myrtle Hallett. The family would like to extend a special thank you to Lisa Peters for her care and kindness over the years. Ruth was passionate about all things arts and crafts. She worked at Lewiscraft for 40 years. Ruth was a past-president of the Bobcaygeon Legion Ladies Auxiliary and a member of the Bobcaygeon Senior Centre and Bobcaygeon Lions Hall. She was an avid euchre and cribbage player and enjoyed lawn bowling at the Bobcaygeon Lawn Bowling Club. Ruth's optimistic outlook, vibrant personality and contagious laugh will be missed.
