Ruth Evans

1928 – 2015

Ruth Evelyn Evans, loving wife of Gordon Evans and beloved mother of Valerie (Roy) Stotz and Randy (Cheryl) Mack, left this life in the early morning hours of Sunday, March 22, 2015. Also left to mourn her passing are her cherished grandsons Chad (Tina) Stotz and Dustin Stotz; step-daughters Bonnie Evans (Jim Guiboche) and Nancy (Mike) Skrynyk; granddaughters Tegan Rosato, Candace (Justin) Gillis, Karissa Skrynyk and Kyla Skrynyk (Clay Soloshy); great- granddaughters Ava and Kate Gillis; and step-grandchildren Holly and Tom Bergerman. She will also be deeply missed by her surviving siblings Gladys Stromsmoe, Walter (Mary Rose) Rasmussen, Carole (George) Hendrickson, and Dick (Marion) Rasmussen; sisters-in-law Marion Rasmussen and Joyce Rasmussen; and brother-in-law Eldon Conquergood; as well as numerous nieces, nephews and friends. She was predeceased by her parents Richard and Minda Rasmussen and siblings Lloyd, Helen, Gordon, Violet, and Margaret. Ruth had many passions – family, friends, teaching, travelling, gardening and lifelong learning. She would never turn down the chance to fly, including a glider flight for her 80th birthday. Her cookies were sent home by the dozens with family and friends, but her amazing cinnamon buns were best at the kitchen table with fresh coffee and conversation. She was many things to many people, and will be deeply missed and forever loved. Family and friends are invited to pay their respects between 7:00 pm and 8:00 pm, on Thursday, March 26, 2015 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, 610 – 4 Street South, Lethbridge. A Funeral Service will be held at 11:00 am, on Friday, March 27, 2015 at MARTIN BROTHERS RIVERVIEW CHAPEL, with Reverend Eva Stanley officiating. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to a children’s charity of your choice. Visit www.mbfunerals.com to send a private condolence.
