Farewell to Ruth

Knowing Ruth was to know limitless energy and a dynamic that was fueled by her ability to lead by example. Countless children experienced the camp where the food was plentiful and the cabins clean. Ruth was always there and often missed events because of her dedication to her 'duties'. Many people demand respect and it eludes them but Ruth earned her respect and it was armour plated. Ruth was a true family person, but she also affected the rest of us in ways that will remain foreever.

I will always remember Ruth fondly, as will my daughters Erin and Jodi. We had great times at the Chisnell camp. There was never a dull moment and always what seemed like a hundred kids under foot! Ruth took it all in her stride. Island 2434 will never be the same.
SO VERY SORRY
