April 9, 1922 ~ March 27, 2019
It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, aunt and friend, Ruth Dobbin, on Wednesday, March 27, 2019.
Ruth was born in Old Pinawa, April 9, 1922, where she lived until she married Everett Dobbin in 1942. In 1963 they were one of the pioneer families who moved to “New” Pinawa where she lived a full and happy life and was fortunate to spend most of her 97 years in the place she loved the most……Pinawa. Always active, enjoying her bridge groups, oil painting in the early years and busy outdoors gardening, golfing, fishing, curling and involvement in numerous volunteer groups.
Ruth was predeceased by her husband Everett in 2011 and is lovingly remembered by her daughter Maureen (Garth), son Bruce, granddaughter Laura (Kevin), grandsons Robert & Jude (Rachel), great-granddaughters, Emma, Alison & Haley, and great-grandsons Ronan & Caden.
Many heartfelt thanks to the Ironwood Supportive Housing staff and the doctors and nursing staff at the Pinawa Hospital. Special thanks to Lorne and Paulette Schram and Rita Bell for being such special and caring friends and always being there when needed.
Funeral services and reception will be held on Friday, April 5 at 2 pm at the Pinawa Alliance Church, 1 Bessborough Ave (at Burrows Rd), Pinawa.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Pinawa Foundation at endowmanitoba.ca or P.O. Box 100, Pinawa, MB. R0E 1L0.Print This Obituary & Condolences
