I met Ruby at the Moose Lodge, she was an active member of the Auxiliary held many offices including the Recorder. I took over that position and with much help and patience she taught me everything that needed to be done. She was always availabble and was greatly appreciated. The most honest person I ever met. Thanks Ruby!

Sorry to hear this sad news. My mom (Darlene) was bff with Ruby since they were in school in Montrose. They are jitterbugging right now I bet. She was beautiful.

Our sympathy goes out to the family on the passing of your mother. I knew Rex in the mid 60's when I stayed with Alice Gabel.

Dearest Karen, Larry & Harold.... My heart breaks for you. Please know how sorry I am for the loss of your sweet Mother. She was a Special Lady. I shall always remember her sweet smile, soft spoken way and beautiful spirit... some of my most favorite childhood memories are of the times our families spent together. I remember how she loved to laugh.... she was a joy! She will always remain in a special place of my heart. Wish I could be there with you at this time. Sending love & prayers.

To all of Ruby's family, What a Fantastic Lady she was. She taught me the ins and outs of being President of the Auxillary at the Eagles, she taught me how to make broccoli/rice casserole and she showed me what the definition of a true Lady is. I have so much love and Respect for ruby. She will be sorely missed. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless you and God Bless Ruby.
