Capt Ruth-Ann Schamuhn Beaudry (Ret’d)
We regret to advise of the death of Captain Ruth-Ann Schamuhn Beaudry (Ret’d) in Comox BC on 18 January 2021 after her battle with cancer.
Ruth-Ann graduated from the Royal Military College in Kingston in 1999 and served as an Canadian Military Engineer officer in 5e Régiment du Génie de Combat in Valcartier QC (1999-2002). During this tour she became qualified as the first female Combat Diver. After her posting to 5e RGC, Ruth-Ann made a career change to become a Medical Officer.
After becoming a CF Medical Officer, Ruth-Ann served as a physician at Canadian Forces Base Trenton ON. She completed a year of Post Graduate training in Internal Medicine at Queen's University (2012-13) and the following year in Family Medicine. Ruth-Ann's illness forced her to give up her practice in early 2018 and the family moved to Comox BC, where her husband Jeff continues to serve as a SAR Tech. Ruth-Ann was released from the Canadian Forces in April 2020.
Funeral details will be published when available.
