Obituary for the late Ruth Kenny

KENNY, Minnie Ruth (Babcock)
Nov 22, 1946 – Oct 01, 2023

Passed away in her 77th year with family by her side at the Kingston General Hospital on October 01, 2023. Beloved wife of Lorne Douglas Kenny.

Predeceased by her parents, Ray and Edna Babcock, sister Corrine King (Bernie), brothers-in-law, Brian and Gordon Kenny. Ruth is survived by her sister, Joanna Ball (Garnet), brother Chet Babcock (Sandy), sisters-in-law Barbara Kenny and Linda Borger (Albert) and brother-in-law Bruce Kenny (Brenda). Ruth will be missed by many nephews and nieces.

Ruth grew up on a farm in RR1 Godfrey, Ontario and after her marriage in 1996 lived with Douglas on the Kenny farm in Inverary, ON. Ruth was a lover of country life. She helped build the cabin next to Dog and Cranberry Lakes and construct the walking trails throughout the woodlot. Ruth spent most of her working life (over 30 years) as a legal secretary in the law office of Geraldine Tepper. Travelling with friends and family and gardening at her home were also part of her interests.

The family want to thank the staff at the Bayshore Transitional Unit in Amherstview and KGH Kidd6 for their care and compassion during Ruth’s stay in both institutions. Following Ruth’s wishes, her remains have been cremated. Interment will take place at a later date in Pine Grove Cemetery, Brewer’s Mills in a private family service. For those wishing to do so, memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Society. Funeral arrangements are to be made by the James Reid Funeral Home.
