Ruby Doris Morrisey
Ruby Morrisey, 97, of Forest Dale nursing home, went to be
with her Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ on January 27, 2021. She was
born in Curryville, April 3, 1923, the daughter of Basil and Reta
Ruby was a member of Hillsborough Baptist
Church, sang in the Silver Chords Choir, and was a lifetime member of
the Women’s Missionary Society. She became interested in
missions as a young girl, avidly reading many books about various
missionaries around the world and supporting missions through her
local church. As a follower of Christ, she knew that church was the
place to be, and brought her children up with that understanding. She
faithfully attended church, even when her hearing loss meant being
unable to hear much of the services.
She was a wonderful mother and grandmother,
learning early on, the importance of relying on God. Although she
experienced some difficult times, she told many stories of the ways
that God faithfully answered her prayers during those times. In her
later years, she was blessed to be able to remain in her apartment for
a number of years, with the support of her family. Her family
continued to enjoy spending time with her once she moved to Forest
Dale. She taught her children well the importance of honesty, hard
work, perseverance, and being committed to whatever was before them.
She leaves behind many treasured memories and was a great example of
what it looks like to know what you believe, and why you believe it.
What a wonderful legacy.
She will be sadly missed by her children Robert
Morrisey of Newmarket, Ont, Teresa Steeves of Hillsborough, Richard
(Carole) Morrisey of Hillsborough, Doris (Jim) Harrison of
Hillsborough, Welda Wilson of Demoiselle Creek, Mary Rushton of Prince
George, B.C., Hugh (Barb) of Hillsborough, Joseph (Donna) of Calgary,

Besides her parents, she was predeceased by
