Mary Ruth MarshJanuary 5, 1930 – October 31, 2013
It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, Mary Ruth Marsh.
Mary is predeceased by the love of her life, Gordon, who passed away October 28, 1994 after 47 years of marriage.
Mary is survived by her six children; Gale Steiner, Gary Marsh (Jan), Brian Marsh (Roberta), Don Marsh, Carol Stake (Douglas), Arleen Marsh (Harold), and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.
Although mom faced many challenges in life she always came through with dignity, grace and a positive attitude and our family will always remember our mom for her kind nature and love of family.
The family would like to extend their sincere thanks to Dr. Susan Alton, whom mom trusted with her care for many years, and Whitehorse General Hospital staff for their wonderful care while mom was hospitalized. Tina, Sophie, Theresa and Sandi from Homecare for all their dedicated, compassionate and loving care through the years, the Medicine Chest Pharmacy for taking care of moms needs with understanding and warmth, and to all the friends who stopped by to visit, called, sent cards and flowers, you lifted her spirits so much, and we thank you for that as well.
In lieu of flowers, next spring plant a pansy or some sweet peas and give Mary a thought or two.
We invite friends to join us for a family gathering for refreshments on Thursday November 7th, 2013 from 2:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m. at Heritage North Funeral Home located on 412 Cook Street, Whitehorse.
