RICHARDSON, Ruth Elizabeth (nee Elvidge) - Quietly slipped away at the Brantford General Hospital on January 18, 2017. Ruth was in her 99th year.

Ruth will be dearly missed by her extended family and many dear friends. Ruth was a teacher for many years in the local area. Her greatest sense of accomplishment came from watching her students exceed above and beyond expectation. Ruth also farmed alongside her husband Jack, playing an important role on the family farm. After retiring from teaching, she joined her husband selling real estate in the Brantford area for ten years. She was a proud mother and a doting grandmother. Funeral arrangements entrusted to the DWAYNE D. BUDGELL FUNERAL HOME . In accordance with Ruth's wishes a private family graveside service will take place. Friends are welcome to join with the family at Etonia United Church, 101 Hwy 2, Etonia, Ontario on Saturday January 28, 2017 for Ruth's final "Reunion" starting at 1 p.m. “Memory Sharing Time” and “Show and Tell” are encouraged. In Ruth's memory, donations made to St. Paul's United Church or Etonia United Church would be appreciated by the family. Online condolences may be made at www.budgellfuneralhome.ca
