  • Notes 
    • WOODRUFF, Elizabeth "Betty" (nee Shantz) - Passed away peacefully on Saturday, July 20, 2013 at Toronto's St. Michael's Hospital Palliative Care Unit, after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 84. Beloved wife of the late William (Bill) Woodruff, loving mother of Mark (Mina) and gran to Sarah and Thomas. Betty lived a rich and cultured life, regularly attending the Theatre, the ROM and AGO. For over 30 years she attended continuing education courses at University of Toronto and George Brown. Her early education as a librarian (University of Toronto) made her a voracious reader and she kept an impressive life list. She will be greatly missed by her family and friends. A private cremation will be held at Betty's request. Memorial donations can be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association or The Kidney Foundation, two of the charities she supported.
