Obituary

HARRIS - Ruth Sylvia (Mills)

On October 19th, 2019, we lost a gentle lady. Ruth was known for her smile, kind nature, and faith in God. The wife of Harold Thomas Harris (predeceased March 31st, 2019), they would have been married 72 years. With their love of music, we are certain they are now dancing to their favourite songs. She was the proud mother of four daughters - Bev Harris-Cecutti (Albert), Judith Harris (Vignesh Thambiah), JoAnne McNamara (Erin), and Lori Harris, to whom she bestowed her traits of compassion, acceptance, and empathy. She adored her four grandchildren, Jaya (Glenn), Darcy, Kurtis (Katie), and Kendall, and celebrated their every accomplishment, big or small. Last year she was fortunate to meet her two great-granddaughters Zoe and Regan. Ruth is predeceased by her parents, Ed and Lucy (Heard) Mills, and her three brothers and their wives: Fenton (Joan), Bob (Margaret), and Bill. She is survived by Bill’s wife Janet. Ruth started her career at the INCO Copper Refinery and then retired as an executive secretary for Falconbridge Ltd. (Glencore). In her 60s she taught aerobics and line dancing. Ruth loved horses - to the point where she took riding lessons for her 70th birthday, and got a tattoo of one at the age of 74. She said the rebel in her was a result of dealing with 3 brothers. Ruth was active in sports from a young age - competitive badminton and swimming, curling, cross-country skiing, and baseball. She won a gold medal in swimming in the Seniors Olympics held in Sudbury. She was happiest near the water, her face turned to the sun. Ruth was an active member of St. Stephen’s United Church, and more recently All People’s United Church, the Royal Canadian Legion Branch 336 Ladies Auxiliary, and Nickle Centre Seniors. She loved music and reading and was always up to the challenge of a new craft. She was always behind the scenes, cheering everyone on, and was never one to want to be in the spotlight. So it was always a joy when Ruth’s quick sense of humour emerged. Her daughters were honoured and privileged to care for her in her final years as she so selflessly cared for them. The family would like to thank the entire staff at Gardenway, St. Joseph’s Villa, who cared for Mom so lovingly over the past 6 years, and who helped her pass on as she lived, with grace and dignity.
