BELISLE, Ruth (Spaven) - May 18, 1919 - March 11, 2017 We are sad to announce the passing of a beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Ruth truly led by example, obtaining a degree in Science from Western when few women went to university. She went to Sherbrooke to study Medical Technology and met her husband, Dr. Paul Belisle (1912 - 1992). They moved to Buckingham, Quebec where she was active in the hospital auxiliary and community health care. She is survived by her son Jim (Sheila), David (Shawna), Avery & Harper: daughter Margaret (Jim), Keith and her very close cousin Bob Birchmore (Marilyn), Patti (Mike), Mya & Russell: Jennifer (Mark), Rachel & Nicole. Ruth had an indomitable spirit as her strength truly came from within. She was strong mentally and physically but also incredibly gentle and kind. She always made time for the children and new members of the family at every event. Ruth will always be missed by those who knew and loved her, and we shall always be grateful to have had her in our lives. Friends will be received at the McBEATH-DYNES FUNERAL HOME 246 Thames Street South, Ingersoll on Saturday, March 18, 2017 from 12 - 1 pm with the funeral service at 1 pm. Spring burial will be in Harris Street Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to Heart & Stoke Foundation or MS Society.
