With great sadness in our hearts, we announce the sudden passing of Ruth Elizabeth Kaspick (née Dorling) on November 20, 2019. She was a beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt. Many cherished friends and relatives will miss her laughter and smiles.
Ruth was born in Sussex, England on September 6, 1945 and came to St. Catherines, Canada in 1964. Ruth is survived by her husband Leonard, daughter Wendy (Michael), sons Andrew (Sarah) and Mark (Kate), and five wonderful grandchildren. She is also survived by her sister Angela Horner (David), brother-in-law Harold Kasprick, and sister-in-law Janice McCracken. She was pre-deceased by her parents Cecil and Lucy Dorling, parents-in-law Joseph and Rose Kasprick, sister-in-law Barbara Kasprick, brother-in-law Bill McCracken, and nephew Scott McCracken.
Within a week of arriving in Canada, Ruth was employed at HG Acres Consulting. During her life in Ontario and Manitoba, Ruth worked at General Motors, Beaverwood Fibre, Bank of Montreal, Lion's Manor, IBM Canada, Bank of Nova Scotia, Parkview Lodge, and Carlton Cards, as well as several entrepreneurial ventures of her own. Ruth always thought of others and actively volunteered in countless community and charitable causes.
Funeral Service will be held on Friday, November 29 2019 at 11:00 am at the Royal Canadian Legion Hall in Neepawa, Manitoba.
The family is very grateful for the condolences and kindness they’ve received from friends and relatives. They would also like to thank White's Funeral Home, Rita Friesen, and the Legion Hall and Ladies Auxiliary for their understanding, care and professionalism. In particular, it was very comforting to have Rev Joe Ball's guidance and support during the anguishing time at Brandon Hospital.
