After a courageous battle with cancer, Ruth passed away peacefully, surrounded by loved ones, at Oshawa General Hospital on Tuesday, January 11, 2005. Born March 17, 1928 West Whitby Township, Ruth was the youngest daughter of Ernest and Hazel BROOKING. The last member of the Brooking family, she was predeceased by her parents and her sisters Ethel, Florence, Eva (Mrs. John BRIGHTMAN) and May (Mrs. William H. YOUNG). Ruth was the dearly loved aunt of Janice MADILL, Oshawa; Paul YOUNG (Carol), Wellington; Bob YOUNG (Laura), Brooklin; Heather SHAY/SHEA, Wellington. She was the dear great aunt of Jeff MADILL (Cheryl,) Rob MADILL (Kelly,) Angela SHAY/SHEA and Gregory and Walter YOUNG and she was the loved great great aunt of Morgann and Matthew MADILL and Emma MADILL. Ruth's entire career was devoted to the Oshawa Public Library. She was head of cataloguing, head of adult services, assistant chief librarian and Chief Executive Officer from 1974-1993. During her term of office, the library underwent considerable expansion with the construction of the Jess Hann Branch in 1977, the major expansion of the R.S. McLaughlin Library, the new book mobile in 1981, and the building of the North View Branch in 1987 and the implementation of the GEAC automation system in 1988. Ruth was involved in many aspects of the Oshawa community, and gave extensively of her time. She served as Vice President on the Board of Directors of Parkwood Estate and on the Board of Brooklin United Church. She was a member of the 'Now and Forever' campaign. Ruth was a member of the Brooking Society, Devon, England, the Rotary Club of Oshawa, the Air Cadet committee and the Canadian Club of Oshawa and Durham of which she served as President from 1989-1990. For her many years of volunteer service to the City of Oshawa Ruth was awarded the Queen's Golden Jubilee Medal in 2000. In addition to her career and her volunteer work, Ruth was devoted to her family. She was young at heart and always game for anything. She will be deeply missed. Ruth's family is grateful to all the doctors and nurses who cared for her during her illness. Ruth fought this insidious disease with fierce determination. After being diagnosed with cancer in 2002, Ruth continued to live life to the fullest, and was determined to take her last trip on the Queen Mary II only months ago with one of her Friends. Resting at the Armstrong Funeral Home, 124 King Street East, Oshawa with Funeral Service in the Chapel on Saturday January 15th at 2 p.m. Interment Groveside Cemetery, Brooklin.
