Beloved wife of the late Eldon Niram Darling for 72 years, Ruth died at home on October 5. Dear mother of Myrna Darling (Wayne Gordon) and Brian Darling (Kathleen Douglas.) Predeceased by sisters in law Doris (George Revell), Phyllis (Fred Mutton), Zella (Orville Silver) and foster brother, Jack Amey. Survived by loving sister in law, Muriel (the late Kenneth Walls.) Beloved aunt of several nieces and nephews. Mother and grandma "of the heart" to many who brought joy to her life.


Ruth, daughter of the late Matthew Sears and Pearl Guthrie, was born and grew up in Wilmer. She worked at Hanson and Edgar Limited Printers in Kingston until her marriage at which time she moved to the Darling farm in Latimer. In 2006, Ruth and Eldon took up residence on the Bear Creek Rd., near Sunbury. Ruth was gracious, welcoming and nonjudgmental, a wonderful cook, a gardener and a lover of nature. She lived life with gratitude and humour, appreciating every blessing, great or small.
