Ruth lived a life full of love and adventure. Born in Davos, Ruth struck out on her own in 1955 arriving in Canada by ship to work in Toronto, where she would eventually meet Hans, the love of her life. A classical music, ballet, art and museum enthusiast, downhill skier, potter, avid flower gardener, wonderful cook and baker, chocolate lover, Swiss Women's Club member, yoga and Thai chi student.
Summers were spent at the hobby farm with its lovely restored log house and valley views. Trips to Switzerland were always a joyous event. The annual flower competition and ribbon awards a source of personal pride.
Always friendly to everyone, Ruth had a manner that endeared her to others.
Never one to shy away from a challenge or learn something new, she always completed whatever she set out to do.
I could not have asked for a more wonderful mother and I am eternally grateful for her love, wisdom, selfless devotion, strength and courage. She loved her small family deeply and was extremely proud of her grandsons who brought her much joy and love. Ruth was a strong woman with an infectious laugh who will be greatly missed by family and friends.
The family thanks Kensington Gardens and all staff for their support and care over 14 years; doctors and staff at Toronto Western Hospital, physiotherapist Sian and assistant Alicia and to her many friends including Helmut and Zaneida Kellen, Helen McNeil, Ruth Zürcher and Francoise Sutton.
Cremation has taken place. Visitation on April 26th from 1-2 p.m. followed by a celebration of life at 2 p.m. at Mount Pleasant Cemetery in Toronto (416-485-5572). Donations may be made to Kensington Gardens or a charity of your choice. Condolences may be sent to the family at email@example.com.
Liebe Mutter. Ich bin klein, mein Wunsch ist klein.
Liebe Mutti du sollst glücklich sein.
EVELYN ISABEL MCKEE (née McIntosh) June 25, 1928, to January 17, 2018
Evelyn McKee (Ev to everyone who knew her) passed away in Toronto in her 90th year. Ev was predeceased by her husband, David C. McKee; survived by her four children, David (Elaine McKee), Matthew (Heidi McKee), Mary McKee-McElwain (Alex McElwain), and Ramsay (Peggy McKee); proud grandmother of Yosef Rouch (David and Elaine), Ramsay, Jackson and Connor (Matthew and Heidi), and Hilary and Allan (Ramsay and Peggy); and great-grandmother of Liza McKee (Jackson and Aleksandra).
Ev was survived by her sister, Mary Campbell; and predeceased by her brother, Ramsay McIntosh.
Ev's twin passions in life were her family and the child-care movement in Ontario. Everyone familiar with the McKees knows she was the anchor that held the family together through all the good times and some challenging ones as well. Many more will know her through her tireless work and advocacy on behalf of children, child care, early childhood workers (ECWs) and child-care policy in Ontario. She was honoured for her dedication as the co-recipient of the Constance E. Hamilton Award in 1990 in recognition of her actions that had a "significant impact on securing equitable treatment for women in Toronto, either socially, economically or culturally."
We want to extend our many thanks to the wonderful staff at The O'Neill Centre in Toronto who made our mother's last years so warm and comfortable.
A service will be held in memory of Ev on Monday, January 22, 2018, at 2:00 p.m. at the Church of the Holy Trinity, 19 Trinity Square, Toronto, Ontario M5G 1B1. In lieu of flowers, we ask you to make a donation in her memory to the Ontario Coalition for Better Child Care, at 489 College Street, Suite 206, Toronto, Ontario M6G 1A5, or to the Church of the Holy Trinity.
JOY ELEANOR MOORE January 23, 1928 January 13, 2018
Passed away at 5:20 a.m. on a Saturday morning in Toronto, Ontario, after a quiet night of sleep, in St. Joseph's Health Centre. Joy missed her 90th birthday by only ten days, though she was fond of telling people that she was 90. Close enough.
Joy was a teacher of students in the third grade. She lived directly across the street from her school in an apartment which she occupied with her husband, Bill, and after his death, for 54-years, long after she had retired from teaching with accolades from the school's Principal.
In earlier days, Joy was a keen traveler and an art buff-she attended lectures at the Women's Art Association of Canada for 25-years. She was a diligent crossword puzzler, but her true love was detective stories, the ones in which a body appears and the story begins there. Joy read two or three books each week, and her various Kindles had on them more than 1000 books.
Her family and friends will miss her black humour, and the fine clothes which made her the best dressed woman in her favourite restaurants.
Visitation: Turner & Porter, 4933 Dundas Street West, Toronto, Ontario M9A 1B6, Friday, January 19, 12:00-1:00 p.m.
