John and Elizabeth Ruxton


Inseparable in life. Together forever.

John Murray Ruxton, Aug 26, 1938 - Jan 7, 2022.

Elizabeth "Betty" Jane Ruxton, Nov 23, 1939 - Jan 9, 2022.

With a true love story like theirs, 60 years together is simply not enough.

John and Betty were supportive and caring parents to their 3 sons; Steve (and Kelly), Dave (and Kim) and Ken (and Angie). Loving Grand Parents to; Amy (and Dan), Jon, David (and Maddy), Rebecca (and Jeremy), Sarah, Emily, Eric, Hannah, and Nathan. Adoring Great Grand Parents to; Oliver, Spencer, and Everett. They taught each and every member of their family the value of hard work and the love of family by example. Others knew them as coach, convener, troop leader, avid stamp collectors, crafters, bakers and volunteers. They went out of their way their entire lives to help anyone they felt they could, family or stranger. You never saw one without the other nearby, so in the end it seemed only fitting that they left this world hand in hand on their next great adventure.

The family would like to thank the staff at LRCP, Sakura House, Caressant Care and WGH for all the help and support they gave Dad, Mom and the rest of the family through these trying times.

Celebration of life to be had at such a time as gatherings are allowed. In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to LRCP, Sakura House or the Alzheimer's Society.
