RUTH ESTHER LANDON, passed away peacefully in Lethbridge, surrounded by her family, on Sunday April 16, 2017 at the age of 66.

She is survived by her husband Donald Kenneth Landon, her sisters; Gloria (Keith) Samuels, Marilyn (Larry) Marleau, Judy (Ron) Quigley, and Debbie (Kelly) Chikmoroff; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Ruth was a perky, athletic and competitive young lady.

After graduating from L.C.I. she fulfilled her lifelong ambition, to serve her God Jehovah, full-time as a Pioneer. After her giving a thorough witness at home, she moved to Quebec, where the need for evangelizers was greater.

Whether you were a stranger she met in the volunteer ministry or a close friend, she was always focussed on your needs and ready to give of herself for your betterment. She was a passionate and effective teacher of God’s Word, as can be attested by her numerous “letters of recommendation”.

In marriage she proved to be a loyal best friend and confidante to her husband Ken of 46 years. She was always supportive as a wife and the horizon was always optimistic.

As a senior she didn’t slow down in her engaging in the Bible education work. With joy, she proudly preached about the Kingdom hope to anyone within earshot. All will miss her happy contagious personality.

Special thanks to Dr. Walsh and the staff at St. Michaels palliative care unit for their outstanding personal care and consideration for Ruth.

A Memorial Service will be held at the Lethbridge Lodge Grand Ballroom, 320 Scenic Drive S, Lethbridge, on Saturday April 22, 2017 at 11:00 am with Shonavin Trowbridge Officiating
