Mrs. Ruby was our neighbor on Highway 20. She always had a cheerful greeting and beautiful smile for anyone she met. She was truly blessed with infectious optimism and will be missed.

My dear Aunt Ruby, One of the sweetest women I've ever known. She could make anyone smile at any time of any day. Even on her down days she always had a way of brightening up anyone's day. She never let her age hold her back from anything.. She will always remain in our hearts and will never be forgotten. I wish she didn't have to go so soon. But I'm very happy that I had the privilege of being apart of her life while she was here with us all

I HAVE NEVER KNOWN A PERSON THAT LOVED GOD AND LIFE AS MUCH AS RUBY DID. SHE COULD MAKE YOU LAUGH KNOW MATTER HOW YOU FELT. WHEN SHE WALKED INTO A ROOM EVERYTHING SEEMED TO LIGHT UP. I KNOW SHE WOULD NOT WISH FOR US TO BE SAD,OR CRY, BUT RIGHT NOW I JUST CAN'T HELP IT. I WILL SEE YOU AGAIN SOME DAY,RUBY.

Ruby was the sweetest woman i have ever had the pleasure to meet and if the rest of us would strive to be like her this world would be a glorious place. She will be well remembered and loved.

Ruby was what every human should strive to be, she was the most beautiful, caring, unselfish soul, always laughing and I don't think I ever saw down, even when you knew she was feeling bad! I am so blessed to have had you in my life and family and even though we were cousins, you will ALWAYS be Aunt Ruby to me!! You will be missed by many, I love you Aunt Ruby!!!

Ruby will be missed by all who knew her. She was one of the most devoted christian women I know. She was always happy and jolly and always smiling no matter how she felt. I always enjoyed spending the night at her house when I was a little girl, she and Guy were always making you laugh! And if you really knew her, you know her favorite saying...WHY, DO SIN!!!!! I love you Aunt RubyJuanita
