Wife of the late Ronald Heiman, loving mother of Susan Minke (and her late husband Robert), Melanie and her husband Mark Chisholm and dear grandmother of Maclean Chisholm all of Kitchener. Also loved by her sister, Patricia Carter of London, and nieces Kimberly, Jan, Heather, Kathryn and nephew Alan and their families. Pre-deceased by her sister, Gladys McKinnon.
Ruth will be fondly remembered by friends from Trinity United Church and the Region of Waterloo Corporate Services. Ruth was an active member of her faith community from a young age into her later years. Ruth enjoyed helping with church services at her nursing home and also being a visiting companion to other Sunnyside residents. Ruth touched many hearts and will be cherished always.
The family thanks the staff at Sunnyside Home, Dr. Kelly (staff on the 5th floor of Grand River Hospital), Dr. Benaroia (3rd Floor Hemo Dialysis staff), Dr. Harlick (Palliative care team) for their dedication to her care.
