Among a list of recommendations made to Sherbrooke’s Toponymy committee at Monday night’s city council meeting was the name of Ruth Atto. Remembered as a dedicated member in all aspects of the local community, the committee suggested that Atto’s name grace one of the streets in the new housing development north of André-Viger Park near Lionel-Groulx Boulevard. Atto, who died in the spring of 2016, was a nurse and teacher at the Sherbrooke Hospital before becoming its Director. Even after the hospital was closed she continued to be deeply involved with the healthcare system on the local level as a volunteer right up until her passing. She recognized as an outstanding townshipper by the Townshippers’ Association in 2015 for her contributions to local healthcare and the English speaking community.
