She is one of the founding members of the Stillpoint House of Prayer in Springtown, Ontario and served as Spiritual Director there as well as the Galilee Centre in Arnprior. In her retirement she took an interest in ‘re-designing’ greeting cards. She had her own studio where she would create beautiful cards or re-create used cards, taking courses and staying abreast of any new technology to help her with her creations. She then sold these cards and donated all of the proceeds to our Peruvian Mission, a cause near and dear to her heart. Sister Ruth always had a smile on her face and a pleasant demeanor although her health struggles were many.
