Wilcox, Ruth I – Ruth Iris
(Bennett) Griffin Wilcox, 83, formerly of Grand Manan, NB, passed away
peacefully on July 26, 2020 at the Passamaquoddy Lodge in St. Andrews,
NB Ruth shared her life with the late Francis Griffin (1989) and the
late Preston Wilcox (2017). Born in Advocate, NS, Ruth was the
daughter of the late Russell and Violet (Morris) Bennett. Ruth is
survived by Ava (Wayne) Sturgeon, Iris (Ken) Griffin, Alana (Robert)
MacLeod, and Peter (Kenda) Wilcox; her grandchildren Vee, Holley,
Blake, Kevin (Dawn), Kyle, and Tristan; her siblings Murray (Carol)

who was very dear to her heart.
Ruth is predeceased by her parents, her siblings
Marilyn Bennett, James Bennett, Maril Bennett, Ross (Johanna) Bennett,
and Wyman Bennett; her son, James Frank; and several sisters and
brothers-in-law. Ruth was born on February 7, 1937, and grew up on the

Preston were married and cherished their companionship, and time with
friends and family, at their home in Seal Cove, and at the cottage at
Beulah Camp in Browns Flat, NB.

friends, and her homemade molasses cookies, and fish chowder and
biscuits are legend. Ruth was a daughter, a sister, an aunt, a wife, a
mother, a grandmother, and a friend to everyone she met, and we will
all miss her quick wit and mischievous grin. All who loved Ruth would
like to extend a heartfelt thank you to the staff at the Passamaquoddy
Lodge who laughed with, and cared for, her over the past three
