Ruth Elizabeth (nee Elliott) Outerbridge


Ruth Elizabeth (nee Elliott)

July 7, 1929 – September 4, 2014

It is with great sadness that the family of Ruth Outerbridge announces her passing in Tsawwassen, B.C. following a lengthy illness. Ruth was born in Galt, Ontario and upon graduating as a Registered Nurse, moved to Bermuda. It was there that she met the love of her life, Bert. At his passing in 2007, they had been happily married for 55 years.

Ruth is survived and deeply missed by her brother Bruce (Edna), sister Jean, and her children Jeff (Nori), Sandra, Brian (Kathleen), Wendy (Steve Vanderkwaak), Steve (Suzi) and Ron (Carol). She will also be greatly missed by grandchildren, Randi (James Lopushinsky), Graham (Myriam), James, Steve, Nathan, Dave, Josh, Emily, Conor and Amy and great-grandchildren Ella and Scarlett. Ruth is also mourned by nieces and nephews in Victoria, B.C. and Ontario. Ruth will be remembered also by her nursing classmates and her former colleagues from Smith’s in Bermuda.

The family is deeply thankful for the devoted and loving care provided to Ruth by all of the staff in the Care Unit at The Waterford.

A celebration of Ruth’s life will be held at Ganges United Church on October 4, 2014. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation in Ruth’s name to either the Alzheimer Society of B.C. or the S.P.C.A.
