July 19, 1932 – March 27, 2010
It is with great sadness that we annouce the passing of Ruth Baxter on March 27, 2010. Mom died comfortably in the company of her children at the Royal Jubilee Hospital in
Victoria, B.C. Survived by children Daniel, Lisa, Sean (Maria), Michael (Terry), Alan (Debra); step children Alanna (Dave), Lee (Cory); numerous grandchildren, great grandchildren, nieces, nephews and many friends.
Mom was predeceased by her mother, Violet Westaway,
sister June Chaisson and former husband, Alan Baxter.
For the last twenty one years, Mom lived in Victoria, B.C. near the ocean which she loved. Mom was passionate about issues of social justice and the environment.
She enjoyed the outdoors, her books, time in the garden, her pets Chilli and Peppurr and spending time with her family and friends. Mom’s feistiness, sense of humour and
her generous heart will be greatly missed by all who
knew her. There will be no service by her request. In lieu
of flowers, a donation in Ruth’s name to the charity of your choice would be welcomed.
