Ruth was born in Vancouver and moved to the Willow Valley near the Crowsnest Pass as she entered grade two. She grew up on the Prairies and loved the outdoor life riding her horse Bugle to school each day. While her brothers stayed to operate the ranch Ruth left home to pursue nurse’s training in Edmonton. Her nursing career spanned 45 years and took her across Canada. She settled in Mission nursing for doctors in private practise then at Mission Memorial Hospital from where she retired as Head Nurse. After eight years of active retirement, she married Frank Proctor. Frank and Ruth were active in their Mission community at Royal Canadian Legion Branch 57 and All Saint’s Anglican Church. Ruth was capable and alert far into her elderly years and managed the care of her parents and her husband as well as being responsible for her own well-being until the last. Her family and friends enjoyed her fun loving spirit. She was definite and resolute in her actions and her professional nursing back ground served her and all who knew her well. The family extends their warmest thanks to the Cedars and Christine Morrison Hospice and their respective staffs for their loving care. A funeral service will be held on Monday December 12 at 11:00 am at All Saint’s Anglican Church, 33077 2nd Avenue, Mission.
