BRISTOL - Ruth T (Tatro) Cyr, 83, of Bristol, widow of Raymond E. Cyr, died Wednesday, Jan. 3, 2007, at home. Mrs. Cyr was born in Eden, Vt., on May 5, 1923, and was a daughter of the late Roger and Mildred (Tucker) Tatro. A Bristol resident since 1940, she worked at New Departure-Hyatt Division of General Motors for more than 40 years before retiring in 1990. She was a member of Prospect United Methodist Church, Bristol. Ruth was a strong, proud woman who never shied away from assisting any family member in need. She was a generous, caring individual and a great listener. One of her great loves was that of feeding and watching the many bird species. She became quite proficient at this, much to the enjoyment of her grandchildren. She experienced much solitude and peace in her gardening and had quite the green thumb. Her family will miss her strong opinions and lively discussions that ensued, specifically in politics and world issues. Ruth was a very proud mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister and aunt who took enormous pride in her children and grandchildren's and family's accomplishments. She was their vocal cheerleader who smiled from ear to ear with each milestone. Her love of Vermont has been instilled in each family member. We will miss her many anecdotes and memories of time passed. Mrs. Cyr is survived by a son and daughter-in-law, Michael and Donna Cyr of Oxford; a daughter and son-in-law, Donna and Dennis Aleksiewicz of Amherst, Maine; a sister, Verna Korchma of Palmetto, Fla.; six grandchildren; a great-granddaughter; and several nieces and nephews. Funeral services will be held Saturday, Jan. 6, 2007 at 1 p.m. at Funk Funeral Home, 35 Bellevue Ave., Bristol. Burial will be in the spring in Eden Cemetery, Eden, Vt. Relatives and friends may call at the funeral home today between 5 and 8 p.m. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Glaucoma Foundation, 80 Maiden Lane, Suite 1206, New York, NY, 10038, or to the Arthritis Foundation, 35 Cold Spring Road, Suite 411, Rocky Hill, CT 06067-3166.
