Ruth Irene Hill, beloved wife of the late Archie Hill, passed away in Lethbridge on Tuesday, April 4, 2023 at the age of 95 years.

The Funeral Service was held at Knox United Church, 4929 - 50 Avenue, Taber on Thursday, April 13, 2023 at 1:00 P.M. Burial followed at the Taber Memorial Garden.

Ruth is survived by her children Wanda Sutherland of Taber and their family Shelly and Dion; Bev (Emil) Spengler of Purple Springs and her family Deena (Jason), Ryan and Keely (Kris); Reg (Joan) Hill of Calgary and their family Devon (Breanna), Mitchell and Linsey; her late son Danny’s children Brett (Corinne) and Jenna (Stephen). She will also be remembered by her ten great grandchildren and by her sister-in-law Emma Womack and her family.

She was predeceased by her husband Archie Hill, her son Danny Langhofer, parents Sydney and Helena Womack and her brother Lorne Womack.

Ruth was born in Lethbridge on July 26, 1927. She grew up on the farm at Kipp and attended school at Rollings Hills. Ruth was employed at several jobs over the years but started work in the dietary department at the hospital in 1980 and remained there until her retirement, making life long friendships with all she worked with.

After retiring, Ruth gardened in summer, baked in the winter and walked every day, weather permitting.

If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Ruth’s name may be made to the charity of one’s choice.

Ruth’s family would like to thank all those who assisted with her daily living and cared for her since May 2021.
