Remembering Ruth Kelly

June 16, 2017

On Friday night, friends, family and former colleagues of Ruth Kelly will gather to remember her fiery personality, her advocacy for the Alberta publishing industry and her work as CEO of Venture Publishing.

Kelly passed away earlier this week.

In the words of Avenue publisher Orville Chubb:

"Ruth Kelly was a force in the publishing world and a champion of Alberta and especially Edmonton. 

"I admired her vision and fortitude in the challenging world of publishing.  What she accomplished as a publisher has always been an inspiration to me.

"Her recent business challenges will never take away from all the outstanding work she has done in the community."  

Kelly was featured in Avenue Edmonton in this magazine's first year of publication — 2010.
