Ruth Josephine Mildred Feener (Pierce)
1948 ~ 2016
Ruth Josephine Mildred Feener (Pierce) of Creston, BC, aged 68, passed away peacefully on Saturday January 16, 2016 with her children by her side.
Born in Waverley, Nova Scotia, Ruth was the daughter of the late Mildred Ostrem (Beach) and Joseph Pierce. Ruth and late husband Roger Feener brought immense laughter and music to Wynndel, BC in 2002 when they moved from Airdrie, AB. Ruth has spent many years suffering with a broken heart after that music died suddenly with Roger’s death in 2005. She will always be remembered for her Maritime sense of humor, her pie baking, and her determination.
She is survived by her children Charles, Yvette (Brad), and Troy (Desiree); sisters MaryLou Barkhouse and Gloria Bradley; and grandchildren Dustin, Jessica, and Ty.
She was pre-deceased by her brother Teddy, sister Julie and especially beloved niece Annie.
A family service will be held at a later date in Peggys Cove, Nova Scotia where Ruth is to be reunited with Roger and her mother.
“For what is it to die but to stand
naked in the wind and to melt into
And what is it to cease breathing, but
to free the breath from its restless
tides, that it may rise and expand
and seek God unencumbered?”
– Khalil Gibran
