I have some great memories from Baskin-Robbins and working for your mom. She was so patient with the kids working there and had the best sense of humor. I can hear her now and some of the things she would tell us. I kind of thought you were a lot like her too!! I pray you and your family are comforted by many good memories.

Bridgette, Terry, Cindy and Jody - thinking of you and praying for peace and comfort. Aunt Ruby will be missed by many. I am so glad that Kip and Knox had the opportunity to know their Great Aunt Ruby. I can only imagine the celebrations in Heaven with others awaiting her arrival. Love you all! Brooke

I am so sorry to Terry, Bridgette, Cindy and Jody. Bridgette, I know these last years have been difficult. I remember living out of state and calling mom. Often she would say she, Aunt Ruby Jean and Aunt Phyllis had been out shopping or celebrating a birthday and Aunt Ruby Jean would say, "Let's get pie and coffee before we go home." Sometimes I was in visiting and was fortunate enough to go with them. They were lots of fun together and Aunt Ruby Jean kept us laughing. I know she and mom are having pie and coffee right now! What a celebration! Love you. Pam

I have so many fond memories of Mrs. Ruby Jean, it would take way too long to try & Rem. Them all. I can say this much, she was Beautiful inside & out, very energetic, funny, great big loving heart, and certainly a force to be reckoned with! I was blessed enough to get to know RJ ( that's what I called her💕) & spend a lot of time with her. One of our favorite things to do was go to the DQ & get us a Butterscotch dipped ice cream cone. She was such a LADY & a very strong one @ that. RJ taught me so much about the world with all of her wise wisdom. I will hold each & every memory of her in my heart forever & ever. We use to just sit, talk & get so tickled laughing that the neighbors could probably hear us. They really truly do not make them like that anymore!!! I look forward to the day I can run up into her arms & receive one of her gentle hugs. RJ, you know...It's not Goodbye, it's " We see you soon" I love you MORE 💕💞🙏

To Ruby's family, I thought the world of her. She was so sweet and kind. My mom, Wilma Durham, was at Yesterday's Place with Ruby. I was heart broken when the covid virus kept me from going to see Ruby and so many others there. After Mom passed away I still went to see Ruby and all the precious residents. I am praying for comfort for all of you. May God hold you in His loving arms.

Bridgette I am so sorry to hear about Ruby. I loved her very much. I have thought of her often. I will always be grateful for her friendship to my mom Bobbye Jo. They always made me laugh. I am sure they are laughing in heaven and probably getting into trouble! May God bless your family. ❤️🙏
