I had the privilege to work with Mrs. Ruby at Burlington Mills years ago. She always rolled her bike to work. Very nic lady.

I am so sad to see that Ms. Ruby has passed. I want her family to know that she help shape and change my life. She was one of the most beautiful souls I have ever met. Although I have not seen her in years, I always had fond memories of her. May God give all of the family the peace that they need at this time. Mary Elizabeth Hooks, Asheville NC.
