Dearly loved mother of Glenn, adored and cherished Nan of Renae. Thanks for everything you have done for us. Reunited with her beloved Mum, Dad and husband Jack. Peace be with you Mum and Nan.

Loved mum and mate to Tom & Jonesy. Most loved Nan to Chad, Hayden & Jess. Adoring and proud Great-Nan to Tom. At peace now with dad. Our hearts are broken but we have so many lovely & wonderful memories of our mum & Nan. "Simply The Best"

Beautiful adored mum of Chris, Ruthie to Mark and very much loved Nanny Ruth to Madison and Kelsey. Mothers hold their children's hands a while and their hearts forever. Nanny Ruth, you filled our lives with so much joy and happiness. Forever in our hearts and memories

My sweet beautiful Mum. I still see your face before me and your voice I long to hear. I miss and love you dearly and wish you were still here. Thank you Mum for giving us your best love and life and each time I'm with my sister, brothers, nieces, nephews and my son I will smile and know that you, Mum, are in each and everyone of us. I know Dad reached from heaven and took you back to him and we know you will watch over us until we meet again. Love you my Mum. Jen, Scotty and Jack

Condolences to you all on Ruthie's passing. Remembering her makes me smile, in particular seeing her pounding the footpath at Olympic speed on her dedicated daily walks, then in and out of the supermarket at lightening speed, her cheery hello/bye as she flashed off to do something and so many more happy flashbacks.
R.I.P Ruthie & Jack ....Big love to you Jen - Vikki XO & Darryl

Dear Glen, Chris, Tom, Jenny and all your families.

My thoughts are with you all today. Ruth was a lovely lady whenever we got to visit we loved her bright and happy laugh and love of her family and of course her football. May she rest in peace with her lovely JAck. Now in heaven, rest peacefully Ruth.

Love Christine, Terry, Joyce and all the family
