Although it has been 30+ years since I have seen Ruby, I remember her calm, sweet spirit. I also remember her good sense of humor when she would banter back and forth with us teenage girls who thought we knew everything. My condolence to her family. She will be missed.

I lived next door to Ruby back in 1961! I had a daughter Tammy and son, Scott. Also, my parents lived there before we did, Florence and Forrest Harrison. Ruby and I would talk out our windows since they were so close😊. She was always happy and smiling. I have a few of her recipes. She was a good cook and baker. Prayers to the family. I especially remember Barbara.

I am so sorry for your loss! So often when I would be playing with Barbara, Ruby was on her knees praying! What an example she was to a young girl.

My family went to church with Ruby, and she used to babysit me and my siblings about 25 years ago. She was one of the kindest and most caring people I’ve ever known.

Lorie and family, William and I are sorry for the loss of your/our beloved Ruby. Her, Nadine and Marge are in Heaven together, what a joyous thought! I smile at the notion of them having the best cruise ever now that they are together. The Westbrooke 7th row ladies will bring so many sweet memories to all that knew them. We lost Nadine August, 2018 and know your pain.
