Wednesday February 27, 2013

It is with great sadness that we announce that Ruby passed away in Toronto on February 22, 2013 after a courageous battle with memory loss. She is survived by her husband, David and her children, Janet and Matthew and grandchildren, Catriona and Margaret. Grieving her loss and cherishing her memory are her sister, Kate and her many beloved nieces and nephews and cousins. Ruby was the fourth of five children in the family of William Playfair Reid and Ina Carson, born near Tillsonburg on February 24, 1923. She went to work in the Saguenay region of Quebec in the 50s and Montreal before moving to Jamaica and Ireland. An artistic flair graced the things she tried. She was cunning at bridge. A memorial service will be held on Saturday, March 2 at 11 a.m. at Mount Pleasant Cemetery, Carfrae Chapel, 375 Mount Pleasant Rd. (located on the west side of Mount Pleasant Cemetery, inside the Mausoleum. Please enter the cemetery through the Mount Pleasant Road west gates or Yonge St. gates and follow the solid yellow line). A reception will follow at the Morley Bedford Funeral Home, 159 Eglinton Ave. West (2 lights west of Yonge St.).
