Ruby Theunissen (nee Hartwell) born November 6, 1931 in Winnipeg, Manitoba, passed away peacefully on Saturday, November 19, 2022 at East Gate Lodge in Beausejour, Manitoba.
Ruby was predeceased by her parents Arthur and Rena, brothers Bunny, Tiny and Barry, husbands Edward and Hank and daughter Rhonda. She will be dearly missed by sons Bill and Jim, daughter-in-law Corinne, grandsons Russ, Ryan, Evan, granddaughter Crystal and great-granddaughter Cara.
Ruby enjoyed the simple life in Beausejour and being out in the country, could gaze up and ponder all the stars in the sky. She was fortunate to have had the company of some very close and life-long friends. She looked forward to shopping trips, was excellent at crosswords, loved her coffee and long telephone visits with her girlfriends. For decades, a day wouldn’t go by when she didn’t talk to best friend Vi Holowinski on the phone. When she finally overcame her fear of flying, she’d spend some summers visiting her family in Vancouver. She’ll be remembered for her home cooking – especially roast beef dinners, home-made pizzas and the best-ever, no-recipe “holubtsi’s”.
