With heavy hearts the family of the late Audrey Ruth Bowring announce her passing at the Palliative Care Unit at Western Long-Term Care on February 17, 2021 in her 87th year. She was the kindest, most gentle and patient mother, grandmother, great grandmother, wife, sister and friend anyone could ask for. She loved music and always held a special place in her heart for animals. Ruth was also a very spiritual woman, devoting herself to God in multiple congregations. She leaves to mourn her children: Lily (Terry), George (Christine), Chris (Carla), brother Melvin (Jackie), grandchildren: Justin (Vanessa), Jordan (Rosa), Nicole, Stephen, Caylee and Cate; great grandchildren: Tyler, Bailey, Ryder, Lily, sister-in-law Elaine Vardy, special niece Kay Morneau (Jacques), family friend Christina Hepditch and her son Liam, as well as numerous nieces, nephews’ other relatives and friends. She was predeceased by her husband Harvey, parents George and Lily Vardy, brothers Jack, Max, Ralph, Harvey and Gary, sisters Trudy, Nelly, Joan and Midge.
