It is with great sadness that the family of Ruth Grande announces the passing of their mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother on July 24, 2020, at the age of 92.
She will be lovingly remembered by her sons Chris and Kerry (Debbie), and by her daughter, Lori. Also mourning her loss are her grandchildren, Robyn (Josh), Christopher (Jennie), and Katie; her great-grandchildren, who fondly called her Gee-Gee, Summer, Nevaeh, Miya, Zoey, Oliver, and Eve; her brother, Jim (Doreen), as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Ruth was predeceased by her husband Jerry; her parents, Ralph and Jessie; her brother, Thurston; and her sisters, Anne, Alice, and Isabel; her sisters-in-law, Catharyne, Maxine, and Maisey, and brothers-in-law Larry, Chuck, Mort, Maurice, Bob, and Gordon.
Ruth was born and raised in Lougheed, AB and District, leaving to study Nursing. She was a proud graduate of the Royal Alexandra School of Nursing in 1951. After marriage to her husband Jerry, she resided in Edmonton and Calgary.
The family wishes to thank the staff at the Devonshire Care Centre in Edmonton for their excellent treatment and care of our mother.
