We Remember


A Celebration of Life will be held on SATURDAY, APRIL 6, 2024, at 1:00 PM, at SPRINGFIELD FUNERAL HOME, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. A reception will follow.
The family invites any of Ruth’s friends to share a tribute, if you wish to do so, please contact the celebrant, Kim Bergstrom, (before Thursday, April 4) at contact@springfieldfuneralhome.com or 250-860-7077.

Ruth, loving wife, aunt, and friend, passed away peacefully on February 26, 2024.

Ruth’s warmth and love touched everyone she met. She will be dearly missed by her loving husband Elmer, niece Jami and family, and her close friend Sonja. She has now been reunited with her parents Elsie and Donald Young, her sister Jean, and her brother Forrest.

Ruth had a radiant and thoughtful presence, cherishing all aspects of life – big and small. She was a beloved and dedicated teacher to many young children, an avid tennis player, curler, and golfer. She enjoyed playing cards or having coffee and conversation with her cherished friends. Her journey was enriched by her 64-year marriage to Elmer, her soulmate and partner in love, life, and adventure. Ruth will be sorely missed by all those who knew her.

Special thanks to her family, friends, and neighbours who provided loving support throughout the years and the Kelowna Hospice House who provided care and compassion in her final days.
