Obituary for Ruby Gladys Dowhaniuk

Dowhaniuk, Ruby (nee Fitzgerald):

Died peacefully, with family by her side, on Tuesday, October 13, 2020 at Innisfree House in Kitchener at the age of 68. Beloved wife of Ron for 42 years. Loving mother of Cara Dowhaniuk (Gary Rempel), David Dowhaniuk and Mary Dowhaniuk (Oswald Palacios). Cherished Cee Cee of Henry, Desmond and Audrey. Dear sister of Edward Fitzgerald, Joan McKibben and Jerry Fitzgerald (Lynda) and sister-in-law of Jack Norcott. Predeceased by parents, Thaddeaus and Ruby Fitzgerald, sisters, Barbara Norcott and Jean Power and brothers-in-law, Grant McKibben and Tom Power, sister-in law Brenda Fitzgerald. Fondly remembered by Tammy Ferraccioli (Rob) and many other nieces and nephews.

She faced life with love, courage, determination and a sheer force of will. She expected much of others, but she expected more of herself. She loved her family greatly, and would do anything for them. She could be heard saying, more then once, "I am sick and tired, of being so sick and tired."
She is greatly missed.
