RUTH MARY LONG
1929 - 2020
Ruth died on April 23, 2020 at Poseidon Long Term Care in Winnipeg MB, at age 90.
Ruth was born in Abbey, Saskatchewan and spent her childhood there. She had a successful career in the insurance industry, spending her working years in Winnipeg and Toronto. In retirement she lived in Oakville, Edmonton, and finally Winnipeg. Ruth had a great sense of humour, liked to cook and especially had a great eye for fashion. She had a closet full of clothes to prove it.
Ruth was predeceased by her parents Harry and Ella Long and her older brother Bill Long. She is survived by her two sisters, Betty Rankin and Margaret Long, both in Edmonton, and her sister-in-law Marguerite Long of Saskatoon. She is also survived by five nephews and one niece.
Our heartfelt thanks go to Gail Reid, Ruth and Margaret’s friend for her tremendous friendship and support during the last few years of Ruth’s life. We would also like to acknowledge the exceptional staff at Poseidon Care Centre. The care and compassion Ruth received is very much appreciated.
