Ruth was born on January 2, 1948 in Winkler to Justina (Loeppky) and Henry J. Dyck. She was the New Year's baby for that year. She grew up in a big and loving family. At the age of 16, she married her sweetheart, Rubin on May 16, 1964. Children soon followed. She worked at the sewing factories in Winkler and Morden as a Floor Persons and sample sewer. She had a home day care and looked after many children through the years. She went back to school and became a Nurse's Aide. She worked at the Morden Hospital and the Boundary Trails Health Centre. She went on disability due to her heart issues and then retired. Mom loved so many things but especially her family. Her love shone through her and would light up any room. She was an awesome listener. She knew her Bible inside and out. We would go to her for spiritual guidance. She loved the Toronto Blue Jays and curling. Mom loved to sing and Back to the Bible. She loved to go camping and the togetherness it brought. She knit and crocheted a lot. She knit hats, booties, and mitts for premature babies in the hospitals. She was loved deeply and will be missed by many.
