Ruth Elaine Nichol (nee MacDonald)
November 10, 1930 - August 11, 2022
 
Ruth Nichol died at Tabor Home in Morden, MB on Thursday August 11, 2022.
 
Her parents, Don and Elva MacDonald, raised her and her five younger sisters and one brother on their farm just north of Darlingford. She attended school in Darlingford and Morden and then off to Winnipeg for teacher training. She taught one year in rural Manitoba then returned to Darlingford to marry Bill. They raised their six children, two boys and four girls on their farm south of Darlingford. Ruth was a firm believer in community involvement and supported her belief with action on numerous committees, boards and associations throughout her life. Among the most dear to her heart were the Zion Calvin United Church, Canadian Foodgrains Bank Darlingford Project and the Darlingford Memorial Park. Ruth was always an avid reader and loved to play word games with Bill and her children and grandchildren. Her commitment to correct grammar and good pronunciation was both appreciated and endearing. Ruth was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother, a committed community member and an example of a life well lived. She was determined to wear out, not rust out and even as her capacity weakened her resolve never did.
 
Ruth will be deeply missed by her children: Jim, Joan (Gerald Farthing), Jack (Trish), Barbara, Liz (Darren Seymour), Kate (Joe Tickner); her many grandchildren and great grandchildren, her sisters: Jean Ching, Helen Johnston, Anne McDonald Hudson, Bernice Morin, Heather McKenzie (Leonard) and sister-in-law: Kathy Grayson and many nieces, nephews, friends and neighbours. She was predeceased by her beloved husband, Bill in 1994, infant daughter, Virginia, 1958, daughter-in-law, Barb Nichol (Lambrecht) 2021, infant grandson, Anthony Nichol, 1973, brother, Donald (Jake) 1994.
 
Ruth’s funeral service at 2:00 p.m. on Thursday August 18, 2022 at the Zion Calvin United Church in Darlingford with interment at the Darlingford Cemetery and reception at Darlingford Community Hall. Donations in Ruth’s memory may be made to Canada Foodgrains Bank, Darlingford Growing Project, 393 Portage Avenue #400, Winnipeg, Manitoba R3B 3H6 or a charity of your choice.
