Obituary Notice — Ruth Carolyn Barry (nee Wright)

Ruth Carolyn Barry (nee Wright) 1961 - 2012

Ruth Carolyn Barry (nee Wright), age 51 years, passed away peacefully at Queen Victoria Hospital in Revelstoke, B.C.

Beloved daughter of Joyce MacLean and the late Jack Wright (Vivien).  Lovingly remembered by her sister, Linda Wright and her brother, Barry Wright (Maureen); niece, Kerry Giddy; nephew, Chris Wright (Nicole) and five grand nieces and nephews.

Ruth was a free spirit who lived life on her own terms.  She was generous, loving and kind with a great sense of humour.  She loved to drive and looked forward to her long trips back to camp in Northern Alberta up the Icefields Parkway.  She was an avid reader and a published poet.  She enjoyed camping and these beautiful mountains.  Ruth gave her time generously and lovingly and volunteered at the Revelstoke Food Bank, St. Peter’s Anglican Church Thrift Store and the annual Community Christmas Dinner at the Frontier.  She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

Our special thanks to Dr. Rennie, the doctors and nurses and all those who compassionately cared for Ruth on her final journey in life.  We are also very grateful for the love and support given to us by all Ruth’s friends during the past few weeks.

There will be no formal funeral or visitation.  A Celebration of Ruth’s life will take place at a later date.
