Obituary of Lynn Ruhe

RUHE, Lynn 1958-2022

Surrounded by her loving family, Lynn Ruhe passed away peacefully in her home on Monday, February 28, 2022, at 11:10 am. Lynn was a caring wife, mother, grandmother, sister, daughter, and friend. Predeceased by her parents Holt and Charlotte Read, she is survived by her supportive husband Fred, daughter Susan (Jared), son Marty (Kelly), and her beloved grandchildren Avalina, Gavin and Connor. She will be deeply missed by her siblings and best friends, Debbie Olah (Joe), Bob Read (Sue), Jeff Read (Michelle), Barbara Fraser, and all her nieces and nephews.
Lynn enjoyed many adventures with Fred on their tandem bicycle, kayaking through the Niagara waterways, and cheering on her favourite sports teams. Her greatest gifts were her grandchildren and she made sure to cherish every moment spent with them. She will be remembered most for her kindness, quick wit, bravery, and resilience, teaching us all what strength and courage truly looks like.
Cheers Lynn! Love you forever.

My condolences to Lynn’s family. I volunteered with her for many years at Lloyd Rice and Quaker Road schools. She was always so upbeat, smiling and lively – always a pleasure to be around.
She will be missed

So sad to hear of Lynn’s passing! I always loved being around the Read family. There was always happiness and energy! So glad I stopped by a few years ago and spent some time with Holt. He and Ernie were always up to something. Condolences to Fred and the family!
