Ruth Loverock, in her 91th year, passed away peacefully August 22, 2021 at the IOOF home in Barrie, Ontario. She married the late Arthur Loverock in 1951, and they lived in Thornhill and Richmond Hill. In 1966 they moved to North Bay, where they resided until their retirement. Ruth is survived by 4 children, Glenda Long (John), Ken Loverock (Gwen), Beth Lashbrook (Steve), and Jeannine Neill (Danny). She is also survived by 5 grandchildren, and 4 great grandchildren.
Ruth worked for many years for a law firm in North Bay. After her retirement, Ruth and Art moved to Coldwater and Ruth became a volunteer travel coordinator for cancer patients. She was recognized for her efforts by the Province of Ontario in 2016. An avid quilter in her retirement years, Ruth made many quilts that family and friends cherish. A church service for Ruth and Art (who passed away in April of 2020) will take place on Sept 8 at 11am at St. Mark’s Presbyterian Church at 429 Jaimeson Drive in Orillia.
The family would like to thank all the staff at the IOOF home in Barrie, especially the dedicated caregivers on Georgian Way. Memorial donations in Ruth’s name would be appreciated to the dialysis unit at Orillia Soldiers Memorial Hospital and will be received by the Doolittle Chapel of Carson Funeral Homes, 54 Coldwater St. E., Orillia (705) 326-3595.
