HENRY, Ruth Amy (Widdowson) - Died on September 13, 2021 at Meighen Retirement Residence, Toronto.
Beloved and loving wife of John M Henry (d.2007); mother of John, Jean (Gina), Deborah and Dawna.
Grandmother of Christopher, Sarah, and Adam Henry; James and Tom DeLorenzi, Keith Barron and Alex Rowlson; and greatgrandmother of Adriani and Ethan Henry, Anna and Julia DeLorenzi, and Bruno Maloy and Albert DeLorenzi Maloy.
Ruth, daughter of Charles and Ann Widdowson, was the youngest of her siblings Charlie, Jean and Jimmy.
Ruth was a wonderful mother. She had a contagious laugh. She and John loved to travel and trans-Canada camping trips in the 1950s/60s nurtured that love in all her children, who travelled and lived more widely but always loved to come home.
From the early 1970s the cottage on Lake Manitouwabing, near Parry Sound, was a summer magnet for family and friends, a retirement home and focus of fond memories of the extending family.
Ruth was the last of her generation and will be fondly remembered by all who knew her.
