It is with deep sorrow that we mourn the passing of Ruby Little (nee Nieman) on July 2, 2022 in her 85th year, beloved wife of the late Gordon Little. Loving mother of the late Gary and his wife Shelley, Karen, Carol and her husband Mike (Rosner), and Rob and his wife Donna.
Proud Nana of Greg (Isabel), Christine, Jason, Rob, Cory (Carly), Mackenzie (Jordan), Emily and Tyler and Great-Nana of Nicole, Matthew, Ashley, Kayla, Sawyer, Camryn, Ruby and Evy.
Ruby is survived by her sister Luly VanWert (late Donald) and brother Elroy Nieman (late Shirley) and pre-deceased by her sister Geneva Wendt (late Howard), Grace Lessard (late Val), and brothers Sidney, Gordon, Norman and Sam and her parents Samuel and Matilda (nee Fischer) Nieman. Ruby will sadly be missed by all her nieces and nephews.
Our beautiful mother and grandmother will be deeply missed. She married Gordon (Buddy) on September 4, 1954. They celebrated over 45 years of marriage together. They moved to Port Elgin in 1969 and enjoyed spending time with the family around their pool. Ruby loved staying active throughout her life with bowling, baseball, fishing, golfing and proud of her time with the Port Elgin Legion. She loved to talk and laugh with family, friends and neighbours. We miss you Ruby and will always love you.
A private immediate family service will be held. Memorial donations to Saugeen Memorial Hospital’s Bring Tom to Town campaign for a new CT scanner or the Canadian Lung Association would be appreciated as expressions of sympathy.
