Ruth Margaret (Sänger) Kind

December 31, 1922 ~ July 5, 2023 (age 100) 100 Years Old


   Ruth was born on December 31, 1922 in Opitz, Germany to Karl and Martha Sänger. Ruth's mother passed away when she was a young girl and she was raised by her two aunts and their husbands. She met Herbert after the end of the war and they were married on April 9, 1949. She and Herbert immigrated to Canada and settled in Calgary, AB where they resided for 47 years. They were blessed with three sons: Norbert, Harold, and Gerald.

   In 1999 Ruth and Herbert moved to the Crowsnest Pass, AB where she resided until her passing on July 5, 2023, in Blairmore, AB. She and Herbert loved being surrounded by the mountains and nature.

   Ruth was predeceased by her beloved husband, Herbert; son Harold; brother, Siegfried; and sister, Friedel.  Ruth leaves to mourn, her sons, Norbert and Gerry (Kathy); daughter-in-law, Linda; grandchildren, Troy, Jason and Heather; great-grandchildren, Landon and Kolten; and sisters, Gabrielle (Herman)

and Renata.

   Ruth was famous for being the ultimate hostess by all who knew her. Her door was always open to friends and family and the coffee and kuchen was always plentiful. Baking, homemaking, family and family photos were Ruth's passions, and her buttercream cakes were legendary. Ruth was a lifelong member of Grace Baptist Church in Calgary, AB, and her enduring faith in God sustained her throughout her long life. We are comforted knowing that she is safe in the loving arms of the Creator once again.

   Special thanks to Dr. Botha and the entire staff of the Crowsnest Pass Continuing Care Centre for the unparalleled care, compassion, love and devotion that Ruth received from them, and for their dedication to their chosen professions. Ruth had many Angels watching over her.  Our small family also wishes to say thank you to Norbert Kind for his unwavering love, laughter, treats, commitment and countless hours spent at Ruth's side during daily visits since February 2021.

   A private family Graveside Service will be held.  In lieu of flowers, memorial donations will be gratefully accepted by the Crowsnest Pass Health Foundation (PO Box 455 Blairmore, AB T0K 0E0).  Condolences may be registered at
