Ruth Reardon RIP

It is with much sadness that I write to tell you that Ruth Reardon, the last surviving co-founder of AIF, died earlier today (8 May 2022), surrounded by her family.  She had been able to stay at home throughout her final illness and remained peaceful and free of pain, although in the last few days she had gradually lost the ability to move, talk or eat.  

Ruth has been a key figure in AIF since it was first established and was still exchanging emails with me until just before Easter.  She is now on her own Easter journey and, as she leaves us, we give thanks for all that she has given to interchurch families both here and in many other countries around the world.  Please keep her and her family in your prayers.

Please pass on this message if there are people in your networks who would want to know of Ruth’s death so that they can also hold her in their prayers.

We will, of course, send further information about arrangements for Ruth’s funeral etc as soon as we have any more news.

With Best wishes
