It is with heavy hearts and deepest sadness that the family of Ferne Rubin announces her passing on October 17/17.
Ferne passed away peacefully at home with her family at her side after a brief battle with cancer.
She leaves behind the love of her life Charles, her husband of 53 years, along with her sons Brent (Jen), Stephen (Clare), grandchildren Danielle (Bode) and Samuel, brother-in-law Jerry (Wendy), and numerous nieces and nephews.
She was predeceased by her parents Abe and Lily Vinsky, her brother Duddy, sister Aileen, mother-in-law Lucy, and father-in-law Sam.
Ferne was born January 10, 1945 in Winnipeg. She met Charles as a teenager at the YMHA and it was love at first sight. Despite a long struggle with multiple sclerosis Ferne never let it get in her way. She will be remembered for her love of her family, her two birds, shopping, decorating, organizing, and her never ending optimism.
The family would like to thank Ferne’s long-time caregivers Connie and Olive for their care and compassion.
Funeral services were held Friday, October 20/17 at Etz-Chayim Synagogue with interment at Bnay Abraham Cemetery.
