RUTH BUBIS (published on May 19, 2009)

RUTH BUBIS It is with great sorrow that we announce the passing of Ruth (Mandel) Bubis, aged 79, on Saturday May 16, 2009 at Concordia Hospital. Ruth moved from Melville, Saskatchewan to Winnipeg as a young child and lived in the North End of Winnipeg with her parents and sister, and then with her husband Norman until they were both admitted to hospital several months ago. Ruth worked alongside Norman at their successful Trent grocery store and later at the family owned Balmoral Motor Hotel. She and Norman were very generous and always willing to help others with their needs. Ruth was totally devoted to her sister Merle (Minuk), parents Menashe and Fannie Mandel and especially Norman who predeceased her just two months ago. She was very proud of her son, daughter-in-law and her five grandchildren and always looked forward to their visits from Israel. Ruth will be greatly mourned by her son Leon and his wife Judy, and grandchildren, Nathaniel, Shira, Pesach, Tzippora and Frima. Our deepest appreciation goes out to the nursing and support staff at Concordia Hospital. During her four month stay at the hospital she was treated with incredible caring, professional concern and affection by so many people. A special thank you goes to family friend and companion Perry Rubenfeld who tirelessly devoted his time and energy to her and Norman and was an unending source of support to the family during her illness. Burial was at the Bnai Abraham Cemetery on Sunday, May 17, 2009. Shiva will be held at 187 McAdam Ave. until Friday afternoon May 22.
