RUZESKY, Shirley Mae (Amundsen)
May 4, 1930 — January 6, 2013
She was Queen of the Ice Carnival. She sailed up the coast of Norway. She swam with dolphins. She danced with Bing Crosby. She was kind, honest, generous, caring, and a little stoic sometimes. Known as “Momo” to her grandchildren, she placed a great deal of importance on family, and she loved reunions and gatherings. Shirley was an unassuming presence, but she had a fierce will and a farmhand’s toughness. She was determined to make it to Christmas despite a difficult fight with cancer that started in the summer. She died at Hospice House in Kelowna on the twelfth day of Christmas. Her immediate family was with her to tell her how much she was loved and to say good-bye. A memorial service will be held Friday, February 1st at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home: 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna, BC. In lieu of flowers, consider donating blood to Canadian Blood Services, or donate to the B.C. Heart and Stroke Foundation or the Cancer Centre for the Southern Interior.
