I am SO sorry. Hugs to the family.
RIP Miss Ruby. Thank you for the kindness shown to me. May the Lord hold everyone in His hands and give them comfort at this time.
I’m so sorry for your loss. Viewing this obituary, I’m reminded of Ruby’s beauty, and her sweet spirit. My mom and dad thought a lot of their neighbors, Bill and Ruby. I enjoyed my time with her at church and at cheer events. I pray your good memories bring a joy to your heart. Much love and my condolences. 💐
This was a great woman mother and all the above. I have known this lovely lady for many years. RIP Ruby and while you are up in heaven tell mom and dad hi and Bill to.
Ruby has been my dear friend for years. I miss her already but praise God that she is with Him, healed completely. Love to you all ❤
