Ruth Corinne Piper

June 25, 1926 - April 4, 2016


Ruth passed peacefully in her sleep.  She was born in North Vancouver and moved to Powell River to be a primary school teacher.  She met her husband-to-be Jim Piper and married him in August of 1951.  Ruth loved her garden and enjoyed the fruits of her labour.

Ruth is survived by her husband Jim.

I'd like the memory of me to be a happy one.

I'd like to leave an afterglow of smiles when life is done.

I'd like to leave an echo whispering softly down the ways,

of happy times and laughing times and bright and sunny days.

I'd like the tears of those who grieve to dry before the sun

over happy memories I leave when my life is done.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Powell River Hospital Foundation or a charity of your choice.  No service by request.  Thank you to all of our friends and neighbors for their support.
