You were a very giving person. It was a rare occasion when I left you house empty handed. You always had something for me. Mostly love , but something that would enrich my life and make it better in your eyes. Something to say you were there and that you cared.
You wanted the best for me, my family and all your children. You had all the answers, all we had to do is listen to you or follow your advice. You meant well and your heart was full of love for your entire family. You saw the best in each and every one of us despite any shortcomings we might of have.
You kept your friends close and your enemies closer. It was sometimes hard to keep up with who was who. It changed daily depending on your mood.
Love filled your house and your heart and every day with you was an adventure to explore and sometimes one to endure. You could talk for hours as memories flooded the room. So many stories to share. Memories of picking cotton in the fields, riding in the covered wagon and the special times you spent with your dad and mom. You always talked about how loving your mom was (I guess you got that from her) Love spilled from your heart. You would glow with pride at all you could share. I admired you for your wisdom and unique perspective about the world.
You gave wet kisses ( yuck )and LOVING , ENDURING HUGS. I even love you for that! You had a huge heart. Your love will live forever in my heart and in the hearts of everyone you touched.
Rest In Peace Grandma. You are with love ones and you will never be alone again!!
I love you more than you will ever know!! Joni Bird❤️

Grandma
First let me say how much I love you. You are one of my best friends and I enjoy spending time with you and talking with you most Monday mornings and any other time I needed a boost.
You amaze me at your ability to recall so much of your history including names and places and even years. I love to hear about you when you were a little girl. I enjoy hearing about my mom, Uncle Tom and Uncle John. You always had a story to share about someone in the family. There was usually an update about someone or something I needed to know about.
It seemed as though you were the cool mom that your kids friends wanted to be around. You still stay in contact with some of their friends to this day.
You were always telling those little risqué jokes like Grandpa used to. You would get mad at him, but it was OK for you to do it. Your sense of humor was always engaged and ready to pounce on us when we least expected it. I loved to hear you talk about sex and how much you knew the importance of keeping the home fires burning! How to be an appropriate wife!!
You opened your home and your heart to so many people including me. Even when I didn't want it , you were there for me in your own unique way. You and Grandpa stepping in and taking care of us when we were young.
You mothered me and taught me about life, the good and the bad. You taught me the important things in life. Like how to fold a fitted sheet, make mini walnut pies, play dominoes and the proper way to leave vacuum lines in the carpet. All the tools I needed to be happy and fulfilled in life. Thank you!
We didn't agree on everything, but you always made your opinions known. Before your sight got so bad you had "read an article" or saw a program about just what was going on in my life.
I love you for that. I even loved that you talked over everything I had to say, but always had a solution to my problems, even when I didn't know I had a problem!

I met Ms. Ruby over 30 years ago when she and her husband drove from California to OK to visit family and came by my parents home and visited with us. They were very kind and loving people and we felt like we had known them for years. Ms. Ruby or as we began calling her, Grandma Ruby was so sweet, she asked us, (Vicki & myself ) to keep in touch with her and we did through the years. We three had the same kind of dog and we enjoyed sharing our dog stories.

We will miss her.

With our deepest sympathy,
Norma Douglas-Barnes and the Douglas family (Rod’s family)
