Ruth Earle – Notable Omemee Citizen Remembered.
Fondly Remembered Citizen Laid to Rest -Ruth Earle, or Ruth Scott,as some may remember her, entered peacefully into rest at Extendicare Kawartha Lakes on Friday, July 15, 2011 in her 95th year. Ruth was the wife of the late Dr. William Earle.
It is perhaps, as ‘Doc’ Earle’s wife that Ruth is best remembered by long time locals. Many remember having been ‘patched up’ by the doctor.
In earlier years, Ruth, a soft spoken, kind woman would patiently share insights into how the practice of medicine had changed over the years with young visitors to her village home at the corner of Sturgeon and Church streets. Ruth’s collection of mortars, pestles,and other medical instruments fascinated young and old alike.
