It is with deep sadness we regret to announce that on March 3, 2020, Ruth Constance Brown (nee Williams), loving wife and mother, passed away at the age of 97.

Ruth was born in Evandale, New Brunswick on October 22, 1922 to Ella and Wilford Williams and raised in Fairville, New Brunswick she was the eldest of four children.

After completing High School, Ruth joined the Civilian Navy, stationed in Ottawa during WW2. She met her beloved James, whom she would marry in 1945. Together they had a family and lived happily together on Rogers Road in Toronto then moving to Devondale in Willowdale until the time of Jimmy’s death in 1993. It was then that Ruth moved to Milton living out her remaining years.

Ruth was pre-deceased by her son David, daughter Sharon, husband James Brody, sisters Betty White(Eugene) New Brunswick, Jean Elliot(Ross) Calgary, brother Wilford Williams(Gwen)Milton, brother in law Robert Brown(Kay) Etobicoke and brother in law John Brown (Ethel) Cardiff, Ontario.

Ruth is survived by daughters Carolle (Steve) Hillsburgh, Sue (Dan) Howley, NL, grandsons Jamie, Peter, special grand daughter Michelle and great grandson Matt, as well as several nieces and nephews and friends. She will be remembered for her strength and determination.

Peacefully sleeping, resting at last,
The world's weary trouble and trials are past.
In silence she suffered, in patience she bore, Till God called her home to suffer no more

If roses grow in Heaven Lord,
please pick a bunch for me.
Place them in my mother’s arms
and tell her they’re from me.
Tell her I love her and miss her much
And when she turns to smile,
place a kiss upon her cheek
and hold her for awhile

(helping seniors with veterinary expenses)

Celebration of life will be held on March 14, 2020 at 5pm at the Milton Baptist church.

Jamie, Carole and Susie - I'm just thinking of you all today as you. your families and Ruthie's friends gather to remember and share memories. We have quite a lot of those ourselves - pleasant ones of visiting at the farm, my graduation (a long ... time ago), visits in Willowdale and Milton thereafter, taking us on a day trip and stopping at every red light on Hwy 7 because she didn't like the highways ... and one of the last visits before she moved from her home was attending church with her one Sunday morning. Always quiet, soft spoken, watching her sugars, telling stories of by-gone times and teasing with Dad. We will miss her but are comforted knowing she is gone in body but ALIVE because HE lives !!! So, our thoughts are with you today as you celebrate HER and the life she lived!! Lois, Terry, Frederic, Valerie, Richard, Joyce and family

Please, don’t buy any flowers for Mom right now, although she loved flowers in life...she has no need or desire for them now. If you feel compelled, please donate to the Farley Foundation as mentioned in the obituary.

Ruth loved dogs...and dogs loved her
