Ruby’s life was full of people and adventure. No matter the circumstances she gave something of herself to everyone she met. She saw the good in everyone. Catering to people all her life, work was an adventure not a chore.

Now she has joined Dad once again. Always in our hearts. We pass her on to him through the gates of Heaven to forever rest in his Kingdom.
