In Memoriam: Ruth Macdonald


The LMMI was saddened to hear about Ruth Macdonald’s death this week. A passionate supporter of L.M. Montgomery studies, Ruth was one of the first people contacted about the Institute and was present at its first launch party, as well as many of our biennial conferences throughout the years.

Always willing to answer questions about her husband Stuart, and his mother, Ruth and her children also supported the LMMI by donating many personal family items, such as the family Bible with Montgomery’s annotations, Montgomery’s Japanese kimono and first signed editions.

Here are the funeral and viewing details and where you can send your condolences:

Our deepest sympathies to Kate, Rod, Deke, Allison, Jason, Kyle, Graydon, Eliza, Ella and to their families. She will be deeply missed.
