Ruby, I was shocked when Jackie called to tell me you had passed away. We first met in 1952 or 53, when Cal and I worked together at the Savannah River Project. Over the years we (Peggy and I)met with you and Cal several times. You were always very gracious and fun to be around. I know your family will miss you very much. I continue to pray for your family. You have found peace and freedom from pain now in heaven and I hope our families can meet again some day.
I'm very sorry to be posting this late and hope you will forgive me. Fondest regards, Bob and Peggy Gardner

We are so sorry to hear of Ruby's passing. What a great and kind lady she was! She was such a big help to us with sewing and buying her beautiful curtains that she sold in her shop. Loved her Mix & Match clothing store, shopped there a lot as well. We send our prayers out to her family and friends, know we will see her again well and happy in Heaven.
Love, Jerry & Marie Dillon

A sweet lady who loved her family, her God, her friends. I first met her on the side of a mountain; now she's on top of the mountain in Heaven looking out after all of us. I love you Ruby, and miss you (and Cal). Fran Gregory
PS: Don't forget to wear your Red Hat. Our Father has a sense of humor and would love it.
