Ruth Louise Whitwell (nee Glessing), a beautiful prairie girl, born in 1929 to Lydia and Herman Glessing, passed away Monday, June 14th, 2021 at Harwood Manor in North Battleford, SK after a short illness at the age of 91 years. She was predeceased by her husband Lloyd of 35 years, 9 siblings, grandson, Michael and son-in-law, Kelly.
Adored by all who knew her, she leaves behind her children: Rick (Pat), Roddy (Candace), Debbie (Dave) and Wanda (Robert), grandchildren: (Ryan, Samantha, Andrea (Jordan), Christopher, Brittany (Miles), Logan and Karley (Adam), great grandchildren: Sloan, Lettie and Theodore. Also left behind is her companion of 25 years, Myron Chomicki and his family with whom she shared many, many happy times.
Ruth will also be deeply missed by the wonderful friends she made during her years as a Nurse’s Aide at the Saskatchewan Hospital and District Care Centre.
She always worked hard, without complaining, was always positive, got done what had to be done, loving every day - “we’ll see what tomorrow brings”.
Retirement brought much joy. She finally had time for her beloved flowers and garden, some time to travel and enjoy new opportunities and experiences.
The heart of our family, Mom never wanted to miss a moment when we all gathered. Always the last to go to bed. Well, it’s time now for you to turn out the lights and get some rest.
We’ll never be the same without you.
Sleep well Ruthie
