BROOK, Ruth Sarah (Nee: Plester)

November 6, 1946 – October 4, 2012

It is with great sadness that we announce the tragic death of Ruth Brook on Thursday, October 4, 2012 in Chemainus B.C.

“Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God” Matthew 5:8

Ruth will be lovingly remembered by her beloved husband Bert and his family; her brothers Jim (Enid), Gerry (Linda), Fred; sisters Louise (Reed), Judie (Ron), and Mary; nieces Jennifer, Dana, Jamie, Jill, Ruth, Shauna, Jill, Liz, Crystal and Phoebe; nephews John, David, Stephen, Joel, Ron, Ben, Rob, Robert, Jim and their families; and by her special friends, Helen and Mary.

Ruth was one of the original residents at Steeples and loved the “family” the staff and fellow residents became to her. Ruth was well known in the community for her positive attitude, optimistic outlook, witty sense of humour and her strong Christian faith.

We will miss Ruth’s ever-present smile and the twinkle in her eye. For the time we had her with us; spreading her sunshine as only she could, we are grateful.

We would like to express our deepest heartfelt appreciation to Dr. Manhas for his compassionate care.

We would also like to thank the Paramedics, Dr. Broere and the staff at Chemainus Health Care for their valiant efforts, and to the R.C.M.P., Victims Services and the Coroner.

A Memorial Service for Ruth will be held at Calvary Baptist Church, River Road, Chemainus, on

Saturday, October 13, 2:00 p.m.

In lieu of flowers please consider a donation in memory of Ruth to the Chemainus Health Care Foundation.
