Obituary of Eileen Ruth Ward
Surrounded by her family, the death of Eileen Ruth Ward, wife of the late Donald Ward, occurred on Sunday, April 21, 2019 at the Saint John Regional Hospital.

Mom loved her family dearly and devoted her time and energy to making sure everyone was taken care of. She loved to garden and bake. No one makes better cookies and pies. She was a perfectionist and we've all learned to be better people because of her.
