In Loving Memory

Ruth Elsie Leask

Born in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan August 15, 1928

It is with broken hearts we share the passing of our Mom on Thanksgiving morning at Vernon hospice. She is now free of the demons that came with her dementia.

She will be sadly missed by her 9 surviving children, lots of grandchildren, great-grandchildren and even great-great-grandchildren!

Mom was predeceased by her husband, Allan Leask; and daughters, Claudia and Sheila.

Mom lived in Vancouver, BC, until 1974 when they went on a family camping trip to Fort St John and never came back!! After Dad passed and the kids moved out, Mom moved to Prince George in 2014 to live with Richard and Kelly; and then to Langley in 2015 to live with Penny and, finally, to Vernon in 2022 to live with Josi, Dennis, Cal & Shirley.

Unfortunately, the dementia sent her to hospital at the end of July and then to hospice at the beginning of October where she passed.

A celebration of life will be planned and announced at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, a donation to C.N.I.B. would be appreciated.
