Forever In Our Hearts –
Mrs. Ruby Madeline Bisson (Simmons) born on February 2nd, 1930 in Toronto, ON to Louise Villneff, and George Simmons passed away peacefully on Tuesday, May 3rd, 2022 at the age of 92 with family by her side. She was married to Emile Joseph Bisson for 66 years.
She is survived by her children: John Bisson (Margo), Don Bisson (Valerie), Judy Bisson (Leon), and Peter Bisson. Her Grandchildren: Dave Bisson (Neisha), Jennifer McConachie (Sean), Julie Bisson (Jonathan), and Jason Key-Bisson (Father – Jess Key). Step-Grandchildren: Yannick, Carina, London & Piper. Her Great-Grandchildren: Adam, Alice, Noah, and Austin.
In her early years, she lived in Toronto working at Metro-Toronto School for the deaf teaching perceptional handicap children, while raising her 4 deaf children. She then learned reflexology and then furthered her career and got well known internationally as far away as Singapore, as a Master Reflexologist. She travelled the world, with the Reflexology Association of Canada teaching and training students in Reflexology and was instrumental in the foundation of the International Council of Reflexologists. She moved to New Liskeard in 1985 to be closer to her late mother while building her home in Twin Lakes, and opening her practise there in reflexology. She had been practising reflexology in her clinic Ruby’s Reflexions from her home up until this past month, and did not retire.
Ruby is very well known not only in Northern Ontario, but through-out Canada, and the world as a spiritual, compassionate, and loving woman, who always put others before herself. Over the years, above and beyond the reflexology treatments with clients, the friendships, conversations, and relationships she cherished very deeply will forever touch those who she came in contact with. She was loved by many and helped a great number of people. Ruby will be deeply missed by so many but her blessings and memories will never be forgotten and cherished for many more lifetimes to come.
Visitation will be held on Friday, May 6, 2022 at the Perrin Funeral Chapel from 2:00 p.m. until 4:00 p.m. and 7:00 p.m. until 8:45 p.m.
