Ruth Ann Windover, SHA Executive Member Notice
Submitted By Caroline Vallee on Thu 07 07, 16
It is with great sadness that Sarnia Hockey Association announces the passing of one of our own executive members, Ruth Ann Windover. 

Ruth Ann was born and raised in Moore Township. Following University, she became a teacher with the Lambton Board of Education.  With husband Lloyd, she supported their four sons as they played fastball, baseball, ball and ice hockey.

Ruth Ann was an active member of the SMAA hockey mothers in the mid 80’s and in 1989 became the Chairperson of that group. In 1991, she was elected chairperson of SMAA hockey.  She held that position until amalgamation with ESMAA.  In 1993, she became the local representative of the Minor Hockey Alliance of Ontario.   After amalgamation, she became the Ice Scheduler for SHA for representative ‘AA’ and ‘A’ teams.  During this time, in 1993, she was also busy organizing an in-line hockey program which ran out of Pt. Edward.

Ruth Ann was actively involved with the Lambton ‘AAA’ organization.  She was also active with a committee that selects RBC scholarship winners nominated from local hockey teams and even worked as a timekeeper for SHA tournaments including Silver Stick. She was also active in other non-profit groups including Sarnia Little Theater and the local Optimist club.

Because of their work in hockey and in-line hockey, she along with husband Lloyd was elected as life members of the SMAA.  She and Lloyd were also elected to the Sarnia/Lambton Hall of Fame. In 2014 SHA was honoured to present Ruth Ann with the first ever Lifetime Honourary Member of Sarnia Hockey Association!   Ruth Ann was the first SHA volunteer to be given life membership in Sarnia Hockey Association.

Ruth Ann was a tireless hockey mother, teacher, leader, and volunteer and will be missed dearly.

A Celebration of Life event in honour of Ruth Ann will be announced at a later date.
