It is with deep sorrow that we announce the passing of Barbara “Ruthie” Kearns Bidwell.
On August 5th, 2017, Ruthie (affectionately known as Nanny, Nanna and Granny-Nanny by her loved ones) passed away peacefully in her sleep at the age of 91. Ruthie, beloved wife of the late Douglas P. Bidwell, is survived by her daughters, Carol and Kathy, her grandson Eric, her granddaughters Valerie and Stephanie, her nephews Ron and Ralph, as well as her great-grandchildren, Gabriel, Alexane, Frédérique, Edmond, Charles and friends.
We would like to thank Dr. Narbonne, Dr. Kovitz-Lensch and staff in the ICU who were so supportive and kind, in our hour of need. Many thanks to Father Roman Lahola, for his spiritual guidance.
Her loved ones request a private funeral that will be held on Friday, August 11th, at 3:00 PM at the Hawthorn-Dale Cemetery in Pointe-aux-Trembles, 15 005 Sherbrooke East. Visitations from 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM.
Friends and relatives are invited to visit the online site to sign the memory book as well as to extend their condolences to the family.
