Ruth Rask

It is with sorrow that the family of Ruth Rask (Baltare) announces her passing on Thursday, January 1, 2015 at the age of 92 years. Ruth was born May 12, 1922 in Parkside, Saskatchewan to Julie Anna and Erick Baltare. She married Swan Rask and moved to the rural community of Nestledown, Sask. where they raised their nine children. On the farm Ruth tended livestock, grew a large garden, cooked and preserved, sewed and knit for her growing family. The family moved to Prince Albert in 1969 and Ruth began working outside of the home. When retirement loomed in 1987 Ruth wasn't sure how she'd fill her time yet it wasn't long before she was busier than ever. Always active Ruth joined teams for bowling and shuffleboard, played cards weekly, always loved to go dancing, and even took up golf in her seventies. Along with her knitting, crocheting and sewing Ruth was always trying her hand at all manner of handicrafts and was still winning ribbons for her entries in the Prince Albert Exhibition in 2014. Ruth is survived by her brother Erwin (Joan) Baltare; children Myrna (Richard) Weir, Brenda (Howard) Smith, Linda Zaparaniuk, Judy Caplette, Brian (Lynn) Rask, Bonnie Rask, Karen Kingsley, Darrell Rask; son-in-law Harold (Sally) Hanson; grandchildren Sherry (Dave) Lawson, Trudy (Spencer) Doxtator, Tammy (Steve) Owens, Trent (Mishy) Weir, Charlene (Lawrence) Vandal, Colleen (Cory) Wall, Pauline Smith, Jolene (Randy) Argue, Jason (Arlene) Bischler, Michelle Zaparaniuk (Mike Arnold), Raelin (Cory) Bliss, Christopher Caplette; Jason (Kim) Rask, Jodi-Lyn Rask, Lindsay Rask, Kyle Rask; 24 great-grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.
