Ruth Livingston

Ruth Livingston

Passed away, peacefully after a courageous struggle with illness, at the V.O.N. Sakura House Hospice, Woodstock, on August 1st, 2020, Ruth Evelyn Livingston, a long-time resident of the Tillsonburg area, at the age of 70. Raised in a farming community, she did not hesitate to try new things, which led her to branch off into retail and real estate. Ruth was always full of positivity; she had a real zest for life and loved to travel, she made friends wherever she went. Anyone that knew Ruth could describe her as a gifted storyteller who gave freely of herself and her knowledge to anyone who asked for or was willing to listen. This knowledge also came in handy when frequenting yard sales; she always loved a good bargain. She will be greatly missed. Ruth leaves behind two sons: Geoffrey and Gerry-John Livingston. Lovingly remembered by her sister Bridget Sullivan and by her nieces Jill Farmer and Joanne Beckett, all of Nova Scotia.
