The Reverend Canon Ruth Smith

Rev Ruth

We are sorry to report that the Reverend Canon Ruth Smith died on May 25, 2023. “Rev Ruth” as she was fondly called, was named an Honorary Assistant at St. Olave’s in 2011 by the Bishop Philip Poole. She also served as President of the ACW and remained actively involved in parish life to the best of her abilities. While illness kept her home during the pandemic until now, she remained in close touch with members of the current ACW. She will be missed.

A funeral service will be held at St. Georges Anglican Church, Trenton on June 28, 2023 at 1 p.m. The service will be followed by interment at the Whites Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, donations to the Dorothy Ley Hospice in Mississauga or the Alzheimer Society would be appreciated.
