Ruth Maria Jussenhofen
It is with great sadness that the family of Ruth Maria (Guttmann) Jussenhofen announces her passing on November 10, 2018. Ruth was born in Frankfurt/Main in Germany, daughter of Richard and Elizabeth (Von Giese) Guttmann and immigrated to Canada in 1952. Ruth, and her late husband Rolf, retired to New Brunswick from Ontario 28 years ago. Just this past October 25 Ruth and her beloved twin Betty (Cluthe) celebrated their 90th birthday (at the Fredericton Inn), a joyous party attended by many family and friends. An adventurous spirit, Ruth would "try anything at least once" – even zip-lining at the age of 88!
Ruth is survived by her children Ray Jussen, Peter Jussenhofen and Monica Canyon; grandchildren Chris, Lee, Lorin, Kip, Cody and Cory, and her twin sister Betty.
A funeral will be held at 4:00 pm on Saturday, November 17 at McAdam’s Funeral Home, 160 York Street, Fredericton. Donations in Ruth’s memory may be made to the Christ Church Cathedral or to the charity of the donor’s choice.
