It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Ruth Hagberg on May 4, 2020 at Riverview Health Center at the age of 82. Left to treasure her memory are her children Andrew Staub, Karen Guest (Bud), Cheryl Schmidt; granddaughter Piper Thomson; sister Karen Bain (Don); and many in-laws, nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
She was predeceased by her parents John and Ingjurd; three brothers Reggie, Barry, David; and five sisters Lillian Duggan, Evelyn Shushack, Stacie Hagberg, Sandra Talaga, Johanne Jacobson-Chute; and granddaughter Calais Staub.
Ruth grew up in Winnipeg and enjoyed a successful career in retail management while raising her family. Family was very important to Ruth. She most enjoyed the many small and large get-togethers where she could be found cooking, dancing, doing reflexology, and sharing an inspiring conversation on the meaning of life. She enjoyed sewing, crafting, shopping and socializing. Ruth was blessed with a fun, loving soul and a generous spirit which she shared with everyone she knew.
Ruth was strong willed and determined and she fought a hard battle these past three years. We love her and we will miss her.
A special thank you to the palliative care community nurses and Riverview Health Care for their kindness and compassionate care during Ruth’s decline in health.
In accordance with Ruth’s wishes cremation has taken place. A private celebration of life will take place when provincial guidelines allow.
