A natural teacher, she spoke fondly of her work teaching primary school, working with youth groups and organizing Sunday school. After moving to Canada in 1969 Ruth devoted much of her volunteer time to Trinity United Church and the United Church Women of Canada. She was a wonderful friend and always ready to reassure, listen and guide.
