Charlotte Ella Ruth went into the arms of the Lord on

January 13, 2014 at the age of 93 years.  Survived by

her son Rae (Gail) of Kelowna; daughter Carol (Bruce)

Macdonald of Calgary; five grandchildren: Allison (Marcus), Colleen, Daniel, Bradley and Michael; one great grandson Grayson; sisters-in-law; numerous nieces and nephews.  Charlotte found It very sad to be the last surviving member

of her family, as she was not the youngest.  Predeceased by her parents; her husband Harold; three brothers: John,

Herman and Ron; six sisters: Ilsa, Alma, Kate, Carrie, Helen and Emma; as well as an infant son Ronald Harold. 

Charlotte was born on a farm in Saskatchewan on March 23, 1920.  Married at St. John’s Lutheran Church on November 22, 1942 at Edenwald, SK.  They lived in Balgonie, where she worked at the municipal office.  In 1960, they moved to Davidson, where she had several accounting office jobs (Con’s Construction, Co-op and the doctor’s office). 

They retired to Saskatoon in 1975, then moved to Kelowna, BC in 1978.  Charlotte was a loving and giving woman

of God.  She was known for her immaculate appearance,

always wearing dresses or suits with matching accessories.  She loved to entertain and was a gracious hostess. 

Everyone will remember her for her wonderful cooking

and “to die for” baking.  Charlotte was talented at knitting, sewing and crocheting.  She loved to dance, play bridge

and to be with her family and friends, but most of all

spoiling her grandchildren.  We will miss you Grandma! 

Special thanks to the staff at both Missionwood and Laurier Manor for their care and kindness.  A memorial service will be held this summer.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to St. John’s Lutheran Church

(Memorial Fund), General Delivery, Zehner,

Saskatchewan, S0G 5K0.
