March 3, 1935 - September 25, 2017

Ruth Eileen Cairns passed away with family at her side in Kamloops on September 25, 2017, at the age of 82 years. She is sadly missed by her children Randy and (Leann), Valerie and (Stewart) and Gregg and (Leonora), as well as her brother Brian, sister Norma and grandchildren Janet, Harysen, Sierra, Sarah and Matthew.

She is predeceased by her husband Glen and brother Bob.

Ruth was a loving wife and mother, devoting most of her time and energy to the needs and comfort of her family whom she loved unconditionally through good times as well as more challenging times. After raising their family Ruth and Glen enjoyed travelling and visited many countries in Central America as well as Hawaii and the Philippines. Ruth would often find humour in life's lessons even if that meant laughing at herself. Some of Ruth's happiest times however were socializing around the kitchen table with family and friends. 

A celebration of life will be held on Saturday, October 28 at 1:30 PM at Desert Gardens, 540 Seymour Street, Kamloops. Please come and share a special memory. In lieu of flowers please feel free to make a donation to a charity of your choosing.
