Ruth was the dearly loved aunt of Janice Madill, Oshawa; Paul Young (Carol), Wellington; Bob Young (Laura), Brooklin; Heather Shea, Wellington. She was the dear great aunt of Jeff Madill (Cheryl), Rob Madill (Kelly), Angela Shea and Gregory and Walter Young. She was also a great great aunt to Morgan and Matthew Madill and Emma Madill. Ruth’s entire career was devoted to the Oshawa Public Library. She was head of cataloguing and adult services and was assistant CEO. In 1974 she became CEO of the Oshawa Public Library and remained in that position until her retirement in 1993. During her term of office, the library underwent considerable expansion with the construction of the Jess Hann Branch in 1977, the major expansion of the R.S. McLaughlin Library, the new book mobile in 1981, and the building of the North View Branch in 1987 and the implementation of the GEAC automation system in 1988.

In addition to her career and her volunteer work, Ruth was tremendously devoted to her family. She was a “giver” in every way imaginable. She was young at heart and always game for anything – which is why her great nephews and nieces loved her presence so much. She will be deeply missed by her family. Ruth’s family is grateful to all the doctors and nurses who cared for her during her illness. Ruth fought this insidious disease with fierce determination. After being diagnosed with cancer in 2002, Ruth continued to live life to the fullest, and was determined to take her last trip only months ago with one of her friends on the Queen Mary II.
