Biographical history

Ruth Marilyn Goodman was born on May 23, 1915 to Jeanette and Solomon Goodman and had three sisters named Rose, Edith, and Annetta. She attended Dalhousie University, graduating with a Bachelor of Science in 1936. She married lawyer Irving Pink (B.A. 1934, LL.B. 1936) and had four sons named Steven, Joel, Ronald, and Darrel. Pink lived in Yarmouth, Nova Scotia, where she supported the YMCA and the Yarmouth Hospital with fundraising campaigns. She was also active in the Jewish community, serving as National Vice President of Hadassah WIZO Canada. In Yarmouth, Pink was known as a gardener and a potter among other hobbies. The Irving and Ruth Pink Award for Youth Development and Social Justice was first awarded in 2016 to celebrate Irving and Ruth Pink’s legacy of public service and advocacy.
