Ruth (Granny) died peacefully at St Mary's Convent Home in Ebchester, on Thursday 16th April. Ruth's sweet, kind and selfless nature meant that she loved and was loved by all those who knew her.
Because of the pandemic, contact had been difficult, managing with electronic devices and messages and finally with Minnie at her bedside. She had been cared for beautifully by the staff and Sisters at St. Marys, surrounded by love and prayer.
