OLAR, Ruth Mary


Ruth OlarPassed away surrounded by family on Sunday, March 8, 2015 at the age of 81.

Beloved wife of George for 56 years. Much loved mother of Karen and John Morrison, Gary and Wendy Olar. Cherished Nana of Melissa and Sarah (Paul) and cherished Grandma of Geoffrey (Rita), Amy (Tyler) and Kyle (Tina). Proud great grandmother of David, Emma and Jacob. Dear sister of June Beaton and Ron Bennett. Predeceased by her parents James and Gladys Bennett. Always remembered by her many sister and brother-in-laws, nieces, nephews and cousins.

Ruth was extremely proud of her 5 grandchildren and loved to brag about them to her Facebook friends. She loved the computer and was quite savvy with her electronics. Although George was her true love, Elvis shared a special place in her heart. Ruth was an avid Greyhound hockey fan and enjoyed long chats with her Greyhound buddy Colton. Popcorn was her favourite snack, special delivery by Amanda. Dad, Gary and Karen would like to express their utmost appreciation towards Wendy. Her time, energy and love spent in attending to Mom’s needs throughout her time at the Davey Home and in years prior were invaluable.

Our sincere thanks to all the special staff at the Davey Home who cared for Ruth and to those who attempted to go the extra mile to make her happy and comfortable.

Our heartfelt appreciation to Dr. David Fera, her longtime doctor and friend.

A Celebration of Ruth’s life will be held at a later date.

If desired, memorial contributions may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association, TAAG (The Animal Assistance Group) or charity of your choice.
