Ruth Lyon Lloyd (nee Anthony) passed away peacefully at her home in Victoria, BC on December 21, 2017 at the age of 88. She was born in Toronto, ON on May 17, 1929. She is survived by her children, Anne and Rick. She will be sadly missed by her family and friends.
Ruth returned to school once her children were in high school where she achieved her ambition of becoming a Registered Nurse. She specialized in gerontology upon graduation and later worked in palliative care. Upon retirement, Ruth enjoyed volunteering at the Royal British Columbia Museum as a docent, and at the James Bay Community Project, (specifically in the Project library on Michigan Street). She was a past president of the New Horizon Society in James Bay, and particularly enjoyed many afternoons playing bridge.
The family wishes to thank Dr. Jennifer Green and Jessica for their compassion and care. Condolences may be offered to the family below.
