Obituary

Taggart, Ruby Isabell (nee Porter)

Early in the morning of February 17th, Ruby Isabell Taggart lost her battle with Parkinsons Disease. Mom fought long and hard, we take comfort in the thought that she is no longer in pain.
Ruby was the beloved wife of the late Jim Taggart (deceased in 1994) and was the loving Mom of Joan (Tom), Dan (Judy), Phyllis, Margaret and David - deceased in 1995 (Laura). Mom was the proud and supportive “Grandma Taggart” of Téa, Alexis, Sarah, Shannon, Jason, Wesley (Rebekah), Jesse and Kaitlin. Ruby was the daughter of Alfred and Maggie (Roszell) Porter, and was born on February 28, 1931 in Corbetton, Ontario. She was the third of the four “Porter” girls and will be dearly missed by her sisters Alice, Ethel and Edie and families.
Friends and family will be received at the Jack Thompson Funeral Home in Shelburne on Friday from 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. The funeral service will be held on Saturday, February 23, 2019 at 1 o’clock in the funeral home chapel. Spring interment will be at Shelburne Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to The Hospital for Sick Children, Shelburne Residence Council, Ronald McDonald House, Parkinson Canada or the charity of your choice. Online condolences may be placed at www.jackandthompsonfuneralhome.com
We want to thank the staff members of Shelburne Residence for their compassionate care of Mom for the past three years and especially during the last couple of months. In addition, we want to acknowledge the super care provided by Dr Mark Guttman and Dr Amy Catania.
Mom was someone that you counted on to “get things done”, whether it be baking (pies, banana bread, tea biscuits, apple crisp), wall-papering (usually on her own), or gardening (her raspberry jam was amazing).
Grandma attended countless sporting events, birthday parties, figure skating carnivals, dance recitals & school concerts.
Mom was a life-long Montreal Canadiens fan, loved to drive and enjoyed Coca-Cola (never Pepsi). Mom will be remembered as an incredible wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandmother, sister, aunt, cousin and friend. We will miss Mom but will follow her example and “carry on”.

Dear Taggart family, I remember, when I was very young, going to your farm for eggs. Then as a teen, Dave made the bus ride to high school so much fun! Your mom was always so kind and friendly. She was blessed with a beautiful family and you have been blessed with many memories of this strong, amazing lady. Susan Dolson Wonnacott

Ruby, like so many of her family, was and are all about family. She was a valued part of the community, known to and loved by many. When thoughts drift to her memory it will always be about inclusion. What a great way to live one's life where everyone is made to feel welcome. Heart-felt condolences from Glen Porter and Cory Conley.
