Peacefully surrounded by her family at Haliburton Hospital on Saturday afternoon, June 5, 2021 in her 79th year. Beloved wife and soul mate of David MacGowan for over 59 years. Loving mother of Neil (Cathy) and Carolyn (Tony). Fondly remembered by her grandchildren Makayla, Madeline, Brianna, Anthony, Hayley and Nolan. Dear sister of Stan, Nina, Don, Wally, Winnie, Wayne and Glenn. Also lovingly remembered by many nieces and nephews. Ruby worked as at Toronto East General Hospital as a Registered Nurse for several years.
