FRASER, Ruth E. Welsford FRASER, Ruth Elizabeth -81, of Welsford, Pictou County, passed away peacefully in Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital, Tatamagouche, on Saturday October 9, 2021. She battled through several health crises the past few years, but sadly lost the fight against pancreatic cancer. Shopping was her passion, and she especially enjoyed a trip to Truro. A great cook and baker, one never left her house without being offered food several times. Ruth was a great friend, and had many, always keeping in touch, if not in person, then by phone. Predeceased by her husband, Ronnie in 2016, she is survived by her son, Jeffrey Fraser (Sonya Swan) and daughter, Tammy Fraser (John Matheson); grandchildren, Brittany (Kevin), Emily (Tyler), Hayden, Hunter and Shaelyn; great granddaughters, Kayleigh and Madison; brothers, Robert (Ann) Heighton, Ronnie (Sharon) Heighton, Keith (Marliyn) Heighton; sisters, Mary (Merlin) Monk and Faye (Dana) Jefferson; sisters-in-law, and several nieces and nephews. Special thanks to Pictou County V.O.N., all the caregivers and nurses who visited over the last few years, Dr. Bush and the nurses and staff at Lillian Fraser Memorial Hospital. Funeral service will be held 3:00 PM Friday from St. John the Baptist Anglican Church, River John, with Rev. John Morrell officiating. COVID-19 restrictions will be in place, masks will be mandatory and proof of vaccination required. Burial will follow in Mountain Road Cemetery. Donations in her memory may be made to the St. John the Baptist Anglican Church, the River John Fire Department, or a charity of your choice.
