Ruth Terry

Ruth Terry passed away on March 19, 2004, falling victim to pancreatic cancer. Her unexpected illness and death shocked many people in the Denman Island community and beyond. We still struggle to find some sense in it, but the best we can hope for is to continue to focus on the parts of life that were most important to her: her two boys Oliver and Theo, now pretty much grown, her passion for the environment, her love of good food and good people and her commitment to making a positive change in the world. We try to run Denman Island Chocolate in a way that she would approve and be proud of, remembering every day the importance of doing the right thing.
