I will always remember her delightful laugher and love for the LORD. I wished we could have lived closer to have shared in many more memories.

Sending our condolences, love, and prayers to the family. She will be greatly missed.

I will always remember Aunt Ruby as a wonderful woman of beauty and grace. She was always sweet and warm to us and it seemed like she always had a smile on her face. I know God blessed our family with her. I know that all that passed before her was celebrating when she joined them❤️❤️

What a sweet lady! A fun memory is when at a 1956 Christmas Eve Family get together is when my Dad caught her on film adjusting Karen’s up-in-the-air skirt. (Aunt Ruby buried her head in her hand and sure turned all kinds of pink!)
Her wit and laughter were so contagious! Her love for her Lord and family was always important to her. I will miss those afternoon chats. Our loss, but great joy in Heaven!

“With long life will I satisfy you “ What a legacy this gal leaves us all. If you knew her, this will all makes sense. If you did not know her, ask her family and friends. She truly blessed me (Jeff) beyond what I could have ever imagined. The Andrus family unit she helped build will forever brighten our path ahead. If you ever needed to know what the meaning of a Godly woman was, look to what she created in her family. This prayer warrior will not be forgotten because we WILL carry it on in her place. Heaven did receive a true spirit that day. She told me (Jeff) I was a son to her, she was a Mom to me. Mom, Mema, Grandma Ruby, we will remember your sweet wet kisses 😘
