Ruth Pauletta Pace

Ruth Pauletta Pace
Ruth Pauletta Pace (Muzzatti) passed away peacefully and comfortably at Dykeland Lodge where she was well cared for. Ruth was the second youngest and last remaining of six children (four sisters and one brother), born to Roy E. and Mary Frances Hunter (Graves). Ruth was born in Halifax where she grew up in the community of Jollimore. For all her years, she was particularly proud of her father, Roy, athlete extraordinaire in the maritime senior sports league (hockey and rugby) and inductee to the Nova Scotia Sports Hall of Fame. As a young woman Ruth worked as a stenographer for the manager of Bank of Montreal in Halifax. Moving beyond the days of shorthand to office manager for Abbott Laboratories, Halifax, where she remained until retirement. Staying active, Ruth (along with her sister Sem), volunteered for twenty years at Birthright Canada, compassionately supporting others. She deeply enjoyed gardening, the outdoors and was known to appreciate a glass of wine or beer and a good swim. Not to mention an A&W burger and root beer (particularly with her grandson Aaron). Ruth found pleasure in just about everything and fascination in things some might only see as mundane. She enjoyed life to the fullest for 91 years. Ruth is survived by immediate family, her children: Stephen Muzzatti, Greg Muzzatti, Beth Lambert (Pace) Elaine Pryor (Pace), Nancy Hopper (Pace), Gary Pace; pre-deceased by Linda Patrylo (Pace) and David Pace. Ruth was privileged and blessed to enjoy grand children and great grandchildren of her blended family.
