Ruby Townsend

October 31, 1925 – May 12, 2021
It is with profound sadness that the family of Ruby Townsend share the news of her passing. Ruby was born in Schreiber Ontario; she was the seventh of eight children. She is survived by her younger brother Donald, five of her six children, seven grandchildren and one great-grandchild plus numerous other extended family members.
Ruby lived a good life and is fondly remembered as being a wonderful person with a beautiful smile. Even though she was a quiet person she was a very strong woman and definitely blazed a trail.
Ruby was predeceased by her husband and now that both are cremated, they will be together once again as the family will hold a graveside service for both on May 25th, 2021 at 1 pm at the Pleasant Valley Cemetery.
Rest in Peace Mom and Dad, we love you and will miss you. In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation to your local Legion, both served in the RCAF and always supported the Legion.
The family would also like to say a huge thank you to all of their caregivers over the years. Tammy, Dr. Gavin Smart, Dr Jocelyn Finstad, Dr Holland, Dr Marks, Carrie, Sam and all of the wonderful staff at Silver Springs, the many people at Home and Community care, Sara with Interior Health, Wayne Bremner and Vernon Taxi Service.
They couldn’t have done it without you and their lives were made all the better for your care and concern. You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence at the family’s online obituary @
