Bruce, Thora


Thora Mavis Bruce (née Young), aged 99 years of Moose Jaw, SK passed away on Tuesday, May 8th, 2018.  Thora was born on the farm at Stoney Beach, SK on December 9th, 1918.  She received her education at Eastview School.  Thora married Stuart Bruce in 1940 and together they raised 4 children.  Thora’s interests were curling, baseball, and cards. Her butter tarts and buns were the best and her pastries were second to none.  Knitting and embroidery occupied her time in later years. Thora loved her electric organ and her plants. After selling her house, Thora moved to Mulberry Estates before living out her remaining years at Caleb Village.  She loved her family and adored her grandchildren. Thora kept her wonderful sense of humour right up till the end. She was in control of her life, in control of her passing, and in control of her destiny. She was predeceased by her parents, Joseph and Alberta Young; brother and sister-in-law, Ross and Winnifred Young; son, Ronn; and grandson, Jason.  Thora will be lovingly remembered by her daughter, Brenda (Len) Powell; son, Vic (Patricia) Bruce; daughter, Cheryl (Rod) Letendre; 10 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren, and 1 great-great-grandchild; as well as numerous other relatives.  A private family graveside service will be held. A Celebration of Thora’s Life will be held on Saturday, August 25th, 2018 from 2:00 to 4:00 p.m. at the Shriner’s Club Hall, 1767 Main St N, Moose Jaw, SK.  Flowers are gratefully declined.  As an expression of sympathy, donations in Thora’s name may be made to The Moose Jaw Humane Society, Box 1658, Station Main, Moose Jaw, SK S6H 7K7.  Arrangements are entrusted to Moose Jaw Funeral Home, 268 Mulberry Lane.
