It is with profound sadness that we said our final farewells to Ruth Eleanor Towers on June 27,
2023. She will be greatly missed by her partner, Judith; siblings Marg (Barry), Murray (Debbie);
children Kerri (Andy), Nikki (Steve), Chad (Camille), Trisha (Jason); and her grandchildren Zoe,
Summer, Dakota and Katelyn, nephews Jeff (Melissa), Steve (Tania) and Michael (Jasmin). Ruth
is pre-deceased by her parents, Vera and Hartley.
Ruth was affectionately known as the "Pied Piper of People"! Family, friends and strangers
were drawn to Ruth for her caring heart and sense of humour. She brought joy, laughter, and
smiles to all that knew her. One of the most important life lesson that she taught us all was
"always have something fun to look forward to" in your life.
Ruth grew up in Enderby, BC, earned her Social Work degree from UBC, and her career
spanned 35 years with the Ministry of Children and Family Development. She was also a
devoted volunteer and coached for Special Olympics BC. She shared her passion for floor
hockey, softball, bowling and golf. Ruth was committed to the growth and development of
hundreds of young athletes. Ruth enjoyed the outdoors, was an avid fisherwoman and in her later years enjoyed a good round of golf.
Ruth will be greatly missed by all that knew her, and we will hold her in our hearts until we meet again. Rest In Peace dear Ruth.
The Celebration of Life will take place on September 9th, in Enderby BC.
Place: Enderby Seniors Center, 1101 George Street
Time: 1-4 pm.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to Special Olympics BC.
