Obituary for Inez RYCKMAN

Ella “Inez” Ryckman
February 26, 1934 ~ November 10, 2023

Passed peacefully with her family at her side, on Friday, November 10, 2023 at the Woodstock General Hospital, in her 90th year.

Predeceased by her husband Bruce (2015), her son Randy “Lion” (2017), her sister Shirley (1999) and brother-in-law Ian (“Wig”) (1996).

Survived by her son Rob (Norma), her daughters Nancy (Dan) and Lisa (Troy). Cherished by her 6 grandchildren Kelly (Mike), Rob Jr. (Kristian), Sarah (Matt), Adam (Carley), Tanya (Justin), Ricky, as well as her 13 great-grandchildren. Inez is also survived by her brother Bill (Lena) Ralph and Barb (the late Bill) Zimmer, Ruth Anne (Joe) Horvath, Betsy (the late Allan) Ryckman and several nieces and nephews.

Inez's talent with knitting needles was evident in the countless pairs of socks that was made. She loved camping with Bruce, having travelled all over Canada and the United States in their motor-home, seeing new places and meeting new friends. Most recently, one of her favourite things, was going for a drive to get an ice cream cone.

A graveside service will be held at the Norwich Gore Cemetery on Tuesday, November 14, 2023 at 11:30 am. Reception to follow at the Norwich United Church, 80 Main Street West, Norwich, ON. Expressions of sympathy may be made to the VON – Sakura House or to the charity of your choice.

Very special thank-you to Arlene and Verlynn at Walnut Grove. This was her “home” since 2016, and she truly considered it home. Thank you, as well to Mardy and Allison, and the staff at the Arn-Lockie Funeral Home, for all their care and compassion at this time.
