We will always remember Ruby for her dedication to God, family and friends. She was always ready to go on a trip with Cavalier tours and she was the comedian of the groups with her wit and laughter! Oh, how she loved to laugh and we did that a lot! She was a pure joy to be around. Michael and Phyllis gave Ruby such great care as Alzheimer’s robbed Ruby of her laughter and sweet smile and her delight in life! The love she felt from Julian and her family kept her going for a long time. She is now free from disease and her reunion with her many siblings and Mother and Father is joyful! We will all be together again!
Love,
Scarlett and Bob
