Ruth Parent



On March 16, 2017, Ruth passed away in her sleep at 98 years of age.

She will be forever remembered by her family: daughter Patricia; grandchildren, Ian, Sheena, Jeff and Dario; great-grandchildren, Peityn and Colson; son Peter; grandchildren, Danielle, Steven and Ashley. She was also Auntie Ruth to countless family members.

She was predeceased by her loving husband, Charlie and grandson, Scott, as well as by five brothers, sisters and her parents.

Ruth lived a long and full life. She was a daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt, friend, nurse, piano teacher, church organist, choirist, wonderful homemaker and tireless volunteer.

A strong faith guided her and she assumed many volunteer roles at St. James and Assumption Catholic Churches. Her nursing career started before she was married and resumed in the 1970s at the Allen Grey. She loved working there and made many good friends.

The family would like to thank the staff at Jubilee Lodge and Ottewell Lodge for their wonderful care. She really loved living at each place over the past 8 years.

A Visitation will be held from 7:00 to 9:00 p.m. on Tuesday, March 21, 2017 at Connelly-McKinley Edmonton South Chapel (4820 Meridian Street NW, Edmonton. Access is via 17 street & 76 avenue).

In Loving Memory of
Ruth Parent
(Maiden: Bailey)
