- Ruth Mary Wood (née Wilkin), passed away peace­fully in her sleep in her 98th year at Cedar­croft Place, Strat­ford on Novem­ber 5, 2017. Born in 1920 to Wil­liam Wilkin and Rose Clarke and the mid­dle of three chil­dren, Ruth mar­ried her hus­band God­frey in 1940. They even­tu­ally set­tled in the Toronto area, where they raised their five chil­dren. Ruth was an ac­tive, long-time mem­ber of Kingsway Bap­tist Church in Eto­bi­coke. She is pre­de­ceased by older brother Clarke Wilkin, younger sis­ter Eleanor Miller, hus­band God­frey Wood and daugh­ter Rose­mary Cur­rie. She will be deeply missed by her chil­dren, Carol Innes (Al­lan), David Wood (Kath­leen), Don Wood (Kate), Cather­ine Berry (Rik) and son-in-law Alec Cur­rie. She is fondly re­mem­bered by 17 grand­chil­dren, 19 great­grand­chil­dren, and sev­eral nieces and neph­ews. As she re­quested, cre­ma­tion has taken place and a pri­vate memo­rial will be held at a later date. As ex­pres­sions of sym­pa­thy, do­na­tions may be made to the char­ity of your choice.
