Obituary

Ruth Edith Archer - Comforted in the love of her family, suddenly and unexpectedly passed on February 26, 2019, at the age of 80. Loving mother of Linda Archer, Juanita Burnett, Michael (Christina) Archer, and Greg Archer. Ruth was the doting mentor and loving grandmother of Candice (Andrew), Ashley (Chad), Nicole, Jamie (Sunci), and Olivia.

Ruth will be missed by her brother Toivo (Eini) Niemi, and sisters in law Ida Hehn, Charlene Archer and Brenda Rose. Ruth was also blessed with many nieces and nephews and was very close and dearly loved them all. Ruth is predeceased by siblings Roy (Marg) Niemi and Jorma (Elsie) Niemi and many in-laws.

A kind soul with a huge heart, Ruth was always available with an open welcoming door and a listening ear. Family felt at home when they arrived at Ruth’s door. Events such as Christmas and Easter were times to enjoy Ruth’s treats from the kitchen including turkey, pies and other special dessert treats. After dinner, the family enjoyed a game of Yahtzee or squaring off with Ruth, the dangerous Scrabble player, or maybe a tame game of Euchre. An avid reader to say the least, Ruth had a collection of books to rival her local library.

Ruth’s love extended beyond her close-knit family, being involved in the Thedford Legion Ladies Auxiliary for many years. Ruth was a huge animal lover as well, with cats and dogs being her special favourites.

A visitation will take place on Friday, March 29, from 7pm - 9pm and Saturday, March 30 from 10am - 11am at the Thedford Gilpin Funeral Home, 97 Victoria Street, followed by a service at 11am celebrating Ruth’s life and interment to take place at the Pinehill Cemetery. A light luncheon reception will follow at Thedford Legion.

Memorial donations to the local humane societies gratefully acknowledged. Share a condolence or memory online at www.gilpinfuneralchapel.com

I' m so sorry I missed this notice, what a lovely lady. I spent many evenings and weekends with the Archer family, Mike and Juanita and Ruth. Dinner's sleep overs and many great times. I especially remember a Halloween night downtown in Thedford. Ruth made sure Mike and I were in on time and there were lots of crazy Halloween pranks going on in the street which we could watch from the window of their place. The cops kept coming to break stuff up and it would all start again. Ruth made sure that Mike and I stayed on the straight and narrow. She will be missed for sure.

I remember Ruth with a smile on her face and a hello, everytime she was working as we walked into the old Thedford Mini Mart. She was a kind, caring, loving woman that's going to be greatly missed but never forgotten. Sending condolences to Greg, Ashley, Nicole and the rest of the family.
