Formerly of Mono and Melancthon townships, passed away peacefully at Avalon Care Centre, Orangeville on February 12,2021, at the age of 97.

Mom will be remembered for her unconditional love and support for her family and friends, her unwavering faith, her volunteer work, her sense of humour, her enjoyment of card games and shuffleboard and her famous butter tarts.

Our family wishes to thank the caring staff of Shelburne Residence Retirement Home and Avalon Care Centre in Orangeville for their kind and compassionate care and support over the past seven years.

Our deepest condolences to the family and friends of Aunt Ruth. I have the fondest memories of Aunt Ruth and Uncle Stan from summers spent at the farm. It wasn`t just about the butter tarts, but the great casseroles too! Meal time was always special at the Kidd farm. What a kind, caring, and genuine soul she was. I hope she`s in the middle of a great big card game with her reunited family. Rest in peace Aunt Ruth. Love Paul and Brenda Nelson.

Sincere condolences on the passing of a truly wonderful lady. I had the pleasure of knowing Ruth and Stan from Trinity Church and Shelburne Curling and then at Shelburne Res where I volunteered and did Ruth's manicures. She will be missed.

My condolences to Ruth’s family. She was a beautiful lady who I had the pleasure to know. I worked in her garden with Donna when Ruth needed a helping hand. Her butter tarts were the best and happy to know Krista has her recipe. Rest In Peace Ruth.
