She was the first woman accountant in the Canadian Division of Smith, Kline and French International Division, Montreal, Quebec and following Chuck’s transfer to Ottawa she was an Accounting Supervisor with the National Defence Research Board.
Throughout her life (following in her mother’s footsteps) she was involved in Anglican Church activities. She held offices at the Parish, Deanery, Diocesan and, National level, served on the ACW Finance Committee; the Task Force on the Rights of Indian Women; Women’s Program Committee and she was a Representative to the Seminar on Church and State Relations, sponsored by the Canadian Council of Bishops. Also, she was a Canadian representative to the Canterbury, England “Women in the Anglican Community” – in support of the Ordination of Women.
Ruth was a member and Officer of the Ottawa Council of Women and the Ontario Provincial Council of Women and served a term as President of the National Council of Women and Vice President of the International Council of Women. In 1976-79 she was involved in the Formation of the Americans Regional Council and was a Founding Member and Signator to the Charter of the National Council Development Organization and MATCH International.
In the 1970-1980s she served on Boards of the Canadian commission of UNESCO Status of Women Committee; The Unitarian Service Committee, The Canadian Council on Social Development; The May Court Club (Ottawa); The Ottawa and District Association for the Mentally Retarded and the National Voluntary Organizations (NVO). On the latter, she chaired a Task Force (Revenue Canada Panel) whose efforts were directed to inclusion in the Income Tax Act of relieving measured for the activities of Charitable Organizations, one result was a simplified Income Tax Return for Charitable Organizations.
Ruth and Chuck moved to Wilmot Creek in 1985 and through the years Ruth served in a number of offices of the home owners association and represented residents of Wilmot Creek on the Board of Ontario Owned Home-leased Lot Federation and made submissions to the Ontario Government. These submissions and those of like communities, resulted in the passage of Bill 21-The Land-Lease Statute Law Amendment Act to the Rental Protection Act. Also, Ruth prepared submissions and spoke at hearings concerning the Clarington Official Plan – as it affected Wilmot Creek.
Ruth believed in a society where the rights, well-being and personal worth of older persons was promoted, respected and utilized.
