Ruth, loving wife to Brian and mother to Diane and Linda, died peacefully in hospital after a short illness on Sunday 7th June. A graveside funeral service was held for her at Greenland Cemetery, Larne, on Tuesday 9th June. Ruth was born and brought up in Larne, attending Inver Primary school and Larne Tech. On leaving school she worked for Howden’s Coal Merchants and then British Road Services. She and her husband Brian were married in 1963, and two years later, when Brian’s work saw him transferred to Belfast docks, they moved to Church Crescent, and in the years that followed, Diane and Linda were born, and eventually when the children were old enough, Ruth went back to work part time as a credit controller at Potter Cowan.
