Passed away peacefully at home in Sutton by the Lake on Wednesday October 14, 2020, in her 81st year. Loving wife of Frederick J. Marcussen. Beloved mother Gloria Henry (James), Fred Jr. and Robert J. (Shawn). Proud grandmother of Sarah, Melissa, the late Robbie, Matthew, Michael (Elaine), Perry (Jessica), Rebeccah (Stephen), and William. Great grandmother of Blake, Ella, and Sophia.

Dear sister of the late George Adams (Maggie), the late Jessie Adams, the late Violet Grey, Gord Adams (Margaret), and Barbara Lawr (Peter). Daughter of the late Samuel and Ruth Adams. Ruth will be fondly remembered by her many nieces and nephews.

Ruth was an avid Angler, Bowler, traveler and enjoyed being a winter “snowbird” with her husband Fred.
The family would like to thank the Stronach Cancer Centre; the wonderful home support from SRT (nurses) and Spectrum (PSW's).

Dear Fred & family,
I wish to send you all my condolences for the loss of your lovely Wife & Mother, Ruth. She was such a lovely lady and I have many happy memories of her when I worked for Fred some years ago. She was such a kind lady who always had an ear to listen or a story to share. I know she will be greatly missed. God Bless you all.
