G. Ruth Morrison

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Georgina Ruth Morrison, 70, of Sackville, surrounded by her loving family at her home on Wednesday, September 25, 2019.  Born in Brantford, ON, Ruth was a daughter of the late Daniel and Josie (Wilcox) Crowther.

Ruth was a member of St. Paul's Anglican Church, Sackville, and an active member of the ACW.  She enjoyed knitting, baking and cooking.  Ruth was a loving wife and mother.

She will be dearly missed by her husband of fifty-five years, Claude Morrison, of Sackville; her children, Andrew (Diane) Morrison, Sackville, NB, Wanda (Sandy) Hodgson, Antigonish, NS, Gina (Tim) Morrison, Bowmanville, ON, and Matthew (Janette) Morrison, Calgary, AB; eleven grandchildren, Dru, Aaron, Jade, Reneé (Mitchel), Matthew, Michelle, Emily, Hannah, Aidan, Ashlin, and Lily; two great grandchildren, Nathan and Logan.  Ruth was the oldest of twelve children.  She will also be missed by her life-long friend, Sherry Williams, of Westville, NS, as well as many nieces and nephews.

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her grandson, Liam in infancy, as well as three brothers.

Arrangements are under the care and guidance of Jones Funeral Home, 70 Bridge Street, Sackville, NB, (506-364-1300).  A service honouring Ruth's life will be held at St. Paul's Anglican Church, Sackville, on Saturday, September 28, 2019 at 2 pm, with a reception to follow.  Father Craig O'Brien presiding.  Interment will take place in the Glencross Cemetery, Guysborough County, NS, at a later date.
