Ruby welcomed me to the family and treated me like I was her own daughter. We gathered together for big and small events over the 25 years she lived in Florida. She and Wayne graciously watched our two young sons while Terry and I went away. After I was home for a few days I noticed she added a row boat to one of her oil paintings and trees to another! I am very grateful that Ruby helped us decorate and renovate more than one home. Another fond memory is enjoying her clam dip over the holidays. And listening to her organ playing.

Ruby Irene Meeker McCorvie Moore - she kept her same initials or monogram throughout her 96 years but her roles changed from daughter, sister, cousin, student, college co-ed, graduate, sister-in-law, wife, mother, mother-in-law, grandma, great grandma, artist, teacher, neighbor, golfer, bowler, organist, decorator, traveler, friend, lover, Christian and all around good sport. She will be missed.

I remember meeting Ruby at Kathleen and Terry's home. She was lovely, kind, and attentive to her family. Scott and Ryan were very affectionate towards her. I remember thinking of her as much younger than her chronological age. Prayers and blessings.

Grandma taught me to play a mean game of wild 2’s poker at an early age. I may have gamed a few pennies from her. One time, when I was quite young, we were playing poker at the Zellwood clubhouse, and I looked around and proclaimed, “This is just like the Wild West!”
