Betsy (Dale) Fruitman

It is with the deepest sorrow and grief that we must announce the passing of our adored Betsy Fruitman, beloved Wife (of the late), Lou Fruitman, Mother, Bubbie, sister and friend on January 8th, 2021. The stars and sun will shine less brightly as the center of our Universe has been forever dimmed.

Betsy will be forever missed by her daughters, Pamela (& Howie Gould), Lisa Fruitman and Marla (& Ronald Struminger), her 6 grandchildren, Amanda, Jeffrey, Jason, Jarod, Phoebe & Joshua, her sister, Lynda Wine, all of her family and friends and anyone who had the privilege of knowing her.

She now joins the love of her life, Lou, and her parents David & Mary Dale in heaven, watching over all of us.

If we had to describe Betsy in one word it would be IRREPLACEABLE.

The abundance of love she had to give: IRREPLACEABLE
Her devotion to her husband and children: IRREPLACEABLE
Her devotion to her parents: IRREPLACEABLE
Her commitment to helping others: IRREPLACEABLE
Her ability to know just what to say and do: IRREPLACEABLE

To say that she will live on in our hearts is an understatement. The permanent imprint that she has left on so many lives will help us carry on without her. Her great beauty, laughter, courage through many difficulties, tenacity and strength are forever embodied within her children and grandchildren. Because of Betsy, we are all and will be, better people. Our loss is tremendous but our gratitude for having been loved by Betsy, knows no bounds.

Memorial donations may be made in Canada to St. Michael’s Hospital Division of Cardiology in memory of Betsy Fruitman 416-864-5000, and in the United States of America to the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation in memory of Betsy Fruitman.
