EASTMAN, Ruth Yvonne. It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ruth Yvonne Eastman, 90, of White Rock, BC. She died peacefully in her sleep on November 28, 2012 at Peace Arch Hospital in White Rock. Born November 10, 1922 in Regina, Saskatchewan, Ruth is predeceased by her parents George and Jorun Steinbach, her late husband David, brothers George and Glen, sister Eugene and son Mark. Left to cherish her memories are daughter Jo-Ellen of White Rock, BC, son John (Evelyn) of Wetaskiwin, Alberta, 7 grandchildren and 11 great grandchildren all of Alberta as well as numerous nieces, nephews and dear friends. Ruth was a kind and loving soul who loved to laugh, entertain and enjoy the adventures that life had to offer. She adored her children and grandchildren and looked forward to their visits for a day of crab fishing on the Pier followed by a well deserved meal of fish and chips off the beach. Fishing was one of many pastimes that she enjoyed so much. Ruth will always be remembered for her classy and colourful taste in fashion, her love of Jazz music and her passion to travel the world ‘convertible style’. Her laughter and infectious, glowing smile always filled the room with joy. She always told us how lucky she was to have such wonderful kids, but we had to remind her that it was us that was so lucky to have her. And we were. Until we meet again GG..maybe one day on the Pier. XOXO love from all of us.
A celebration of life for Ruth will be held Saturday, December 8, 2012 at 2pm at Peace Arch Manor, 15468 Roper Rd. in White Rock, BC.
