HUDSON, Marion Ruth (née WIGMORE)
At age 87, peacefully departed this world early Friday morning, February 4th, 2005. Ruth was a loving and devoted wife to her husband and best friend, the late J. Elliott HUDSON for 45 years the caring and supportive mother to her three sons John (Gail), Bert (Marianne) and Bob (Carol Anne); and the proud and generous grandmother to Abbie, Katherine, Emily, Heather, Jill, and Sarah. She leaves her brothers Versey (Margaret) and Bob (June) and sister Dorrie (Art) KERR as well as many nephews and nieces. She also leaves her many Friends and colleagues whose lives will, for a moment, take on a sadder hue. Born in Toronto, Ontario, Ruth was one of eight children born to Mr. and Mrs. Richard Curran WIGMORE and Ena BLACKBURN. She was educated at Leslie Street Public School and Riverdale High School, Toronto. Graduated from the Church of England Deaconess and Missionary Training House and made Deaconess at St. James Cathedral, Toronto. Before her marriage to Judge J. Elliott HUDSON, she worked as a staff member at St. Faith's Lodge in Toronto, a home for delinquent girls. She was then appointed Field Secretary for the Church of England Deaconess and Missionary Training House. During World War 2, Ruth served as a Lady Assistant to the Chaplaincy Service, C.W.A.C., and was affectionately called, 'Wiggy' by her fellow officers - a term taken from her maiden name, 'Wigmore'. The other ranks called her 'Madre' - a take off on the word 'Padre'. Following the war Ruth took a special course in Youth Work at the University of Toronto and then worked for a short time in the Anglican Diocese of Rupert's Land and the Diocese of Saskatoon. She was appointed Deaconess at St. Timothy's Anglican Church, North Toronto. Like many of her generation in the Great Depression, Ruth left high school to help support her family. When her children were themselves in school, Ruth completed her high school diploma at night and then entered university. In 1961, she graduated from the University of King's College with a B.A., and the next year, completed her B.Ed. from Dalhousie University. Ruth was an elementary teacher in Halifax at Richmond and Ardmore Schools before taking on the position of Principal at Elizabeth Sutherland School and later at Holly Drive School. She retired in June of 1982. As a Christian, Ruth was keen on Christian education in the public schools and firmly believed that as an educator, one had a responsibility to teach the whole child - body, mind and spirit. Active in church, community and sports, she enjoyed lawn bowling, bridge and travel. Prior to her 85th birthday, she advised her family not to make any special plans as 'I won't be here'. When asked to explain what she meant, Ruth said that she'd booked a flight to New Zealand where she would be attending an international conference of the Order of St. Luke (a healing order of the Anglican Church). She attended the Conference and had a marvellous time. She loved to talk about how she swam in the Great Barrier Reef on her birthday. But perhaps her most extraordinary trip was the one she embarked upon in the spring of 1995. Ruth had attended an Anglican World Relief and Development meeting in Liverpool, Nova Scotia, where she met a woman from Uganda. When Ruth asked how women from Nova Scotia could offer specific assistance to the women of Uganda, the answer was to assist with her village's transportation needs. After much prayer and the support of the Dean and clergy of the Chebucto region, 77 year old Ruth and two female Friends aged 73 and 87 personally delivered a new crewcab truck to the Diocese of Uganda. Helping others was a way of life for her and her closets are full of various community service volunteer awards. She became interested in Blind Sport Nova Scotia and became a national presence in the sport of blind lawn bowling. She coached one of her blind athletes to a Canadian championship. Even after the onset of pneumonia, she visited her Friends, sympathising with them on their aches and pains and encouraging them to carry on. 'Praise and pray, and peg away!' was her motto and a day didn't pass without her doing all three as fervently as she could. She was a natural teacher and, like all the best teachers, she taught by example. When Elliott, her husband and best friend died, she wrote a book about his life, All Rise - a clever title that commented both on Elliott's judgeship and Ruth's sure and certain hope of the Resurrection. A service of Festive Evensong commemorating the life of this remarkable Christian will be held at the Cathedral Church of All Saints', Tower Road, Halifax on Friday, February 11th at 4: 00 p.m. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Restoration Fund of the Cathedral Church of All Saints, the University of King's College Development Fund, the Diocese of Fredericton Choir School, or a charity of your choice.
