It is with great sadness that we the family say Goodbye to our Mother, Ruth (Smyth) Laszewski of Bathurst, which occurred suddenly in Fredericton on Monday December 31, 2018.
Born in South Tetagouche, she was the daughter of the late Newton and Marion (Good) Smyth.
Ruth married our Father, Ben Laszewski in 1958 and raised a family of four children in Bathurst.
Ruth is survived by three children: Darrell (Teri Winter) of Freeport, IL, USA, Susan Moore (Rick ) and Sandra Melanson (Steve) both of New Maryland, NB.
Four grandchildren who were her pride and joy: Colin and Mason Moore and Brett and Carter Melanson.
One brother, Hugh Smyth (Janet Pitre) of South Tetagouche and his children: Wanda (Danny McLaughlin), Leslie (Tammie Caissie) and Brenda (Robert Vibert) and one sister, Charlotte LeClair and her children: Stephen LeClair (Lynn) and Kevin LeClair as well as four nieces and nephews: Joanne, David, Jeff and Renee and their families.
Besides her husband, Ruth is predeceased by one son, David and her sister-in-law, Barb Smyth and brother-in-law, Frank LeClair.
Ruth was loved and supported by so many close friends and family.
We are beyond appreciative of the loving care and support provided by them.
The Family will receive relatives and friends after 2pm Saturday at Elhatton Funeral Home (www.elhatton.com), Bathurst.
Funeral services will be held on Sunday, January 6th, 2019 at 2 p.m. from the First United Church, St. Patrick Street, Bathurst. Visiting hours are Saturday from 2 to 4 and 7 to 9.
