Obituary

Ruth Eileen Max
May 10, 1931 - August 11, 2019

Passed peacefully surrounded by family at Derbeckers Heritage House, St. Jacobs at age 88.

Survived by her loving husband of 66 years, Jack Max; brother Bob Stinson (Joan); daughters Jody
Max, Jennifer Gloin (Greg). Also survived by six grandchildren: Andrew Beattie (Caitlyn), Christopher
Taylor, Emma Beattie (Rob), Matthew Taylor, Jake Gloin and Leah Gloin; and three great-grandchildren:
Charlotte, James and Logan Beattie. Predeceased by her daughter Jill Max (Michael).

Ruth was born in Toronto but summered at Sandy Bay Road on Gull Lake (Minden) for much of her
childhood. The “lake” was her special place and she and Jack were fortunate to have spent over 30 years there
in their retirement. Ruth was an active member of the Minden Hospital Auxiliary and a board member of the
Gull Lake Association. Ruth spent most of her working life as an editor - always known for her gift with words.
She loved a good book, a comfy couch with a blanket and a view of the water, a glass of wine, with many
laughs on the deck with her girls and Jack.

Grandma “cottage” as she was affectionately known, will be greatly missed by all her family and friends. A
sincere thank you to the staff at Derbeckers Heritage House in St. Jacobs, who provided such genuine, loving
care for the last few months.

Private family interment. Donation to Derbeckers Heritage House in lieu of flowers.
