Ruth N. (George) Jardine

HAVERHILL: Ruth N. (George) Jardine, 89, passed away on April 17, 2017 at the Merrimack Valley Hospice House six days following the passing of her husband Charles P. Jardine, also at the Merrimack Valley Hospice House. The couple had been married for sixty-nine years.

Born in Haverhill on September 7, 1927, she was the daughter of the late Delbert and Minnie A. (Libby) George.

Ruth was educated in Haverhill and graduated from Haverhill High School. She worked as an assembler at the former AT&T prior to her retirement. She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church, and the Westminster Guild.

Ruth was a wonderful cook and baker, always making food for her family and gatherings. Her grandchildren especially remember being greeted on weekends with two apple pies when they came to visit. She was also a lover of plants and was very proud of her “green thumb”.

The last of six children, Ruth is survived by her son, Jeffery Jardine of Haverhill; five grandchildren; six great grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.

Relatives and friends are invited to attend a double memorial service on Sunday, April 30th at 2:00 p.m., at the First Presbyterian Church. Donation in Mr. & Mrs. Jardine’s memories may be made to First Presbyterian Church, 346 Broadway, Haverhill, MA 01832. Arrangements are under the direction of Dole, Childs & Shaw Funeral Home, 148 Main Street, Haverhill.
