Dear Nancy and family,
our deepest sympathy upon the loss of this great lady. I remember Ruby as always smiling, fun-loving, and I remember her famous home-made noodles. She shared her recipe with me a long time ago and I still use it. We kept in touch with Christmas cards over the years, even after Randy and I moved and her notes always made me smile. She will be missed.

My special memories of Ruby are the many wonderful Thanksgiving Dinners at her home. There was always plenty of great food and lots of laughs. My mother will miss her weekly phone conversations with Ruby. She was a wonderful person and will be missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family at this time of loss! God Bless❤️
