 Ruby truly loved her family. Despite her advanced age and the many difficult losses she experienced over her lifetime, she remained the rock of our family.  She was strong, faithful, warm, kind, giving, funny and always very loving. She was known to always have the best advice. She was never without a smile, a kind word or a loving embrace.  She will be greatly missed by her family and friends alike.
