Ruth Ellen Lloyd (McCallum) – Our mother passed away peacefully, Monday, September 24th, 2018 in Magnolia Continuing Care, Enfield with her three daughters at her side. Born on January 15, 1931, she was a daughter of the late Harry and Florence (O’Brien) McCallum.
Mom had eight children that kept her busy; Bill (Roz), Nancy (Sonny), Gail (Allison), Bruce (Barbie), Paul (deceased), Terry (deceased), Wayne and Mandy (Stephen); seven grandchildren, Brandy (Jody), Melissa, Max, Derrick, Jon, Tracey, Jeron; three great grandchildren, Jessica, Michael and Lily. She is survived by sister, Eunice; brother, Rufus (Jean); predeceased by husband, Leslie; sisters, Ivy (Ira), Evelyn, Pansy (Charlie), Adeline; brothers, Dick (Olive), Neil (Gladys), Alfred (Verda).
Mom had a busy life with her eight children. She was a hard worker, beautiful cook, seamstress and crafter.
She loved having all of the family around especially on special holidays when everyone was present for good conversation, laughter and good food. She worked as a cashier, seamstress, waitress and a cook.
We would like to the staff of the Magnolia who took such great care of our mom during her stay there and were so wonderful to us at this sad time. Everyone was like a ray of sunshine.
