REID: Ruby Florence (nee Otto)
April 1, 1935 – August 4, 2018
It is with great sadness that the family announces the passing of their mother, Ruby Florence Reid (nee Otto) on Saturday, August 4th, 2018, at her residence in Diamond Jubilee Court, Watrous, SK, at the age of 83 years. Ruby was the third child born to Clarence and Mary Otto on April 1, 1935 in Brockington, Saskatchewan. Ruby was raised on her family’s farm with three brothers and two sisters. Ruby married Gordon Reid on December 17, 1952 in Melfort, Saskatchewan. They had seven children, five boys and two girls before their separation and divorce. Ruby was a fantastic baker and every one in the family can relate to a specific dish Ruby cooked up for them. Ruby had a very strong will and was fiercely independent. Ruby was predeceased by her parents Clarence and Mary Otto; brother Kenneth; sisters Mary Elaine and Eileen; and her grandson Christopher. Ruby is survived by two brothers, Richard and Dave (June); her sons Wayne, Garry, Randy (Betty), Ricky and Gordy; her daughters Janice and Lynda; her grandchildren, Daniel, Trisha, Anthony, Jeffery, Michael, Jessica, Kelly, Nicole, Lynnell; many-great grandchildren and nieces and nephews. At Ruby’s request there will be No Funeral Service. A Private Family Interment will be held at Bagley Lutheran Church Cemetery, near Carrot River, SK at a later date.
