I had the privilege to be one of Ruby's pharmacist's at Ritzman Pharmacy. I always enjoyed the times when she and Rick
came in. She had a wonderful sense of humor and she was a pleasure to work with. Sometimes working in retail is not easy, but Ruby made it easy for me. When her health was failing she told me that she was so appreciative of Rick! She said "He really stepped up". I will miss you Ruby.... Thank you Rick, you're the best..Rob Wilkins

It's so hard to say Good Bye to this precious lady!! She was so much more than my Step Mother in law!! She was definitely one of my most favorite people to spend time with! We had many talks about Family, Friends, and our lives over the years. We Laughed often because Ruby was such a positive, fun loving person! She always made me feel like I was part of her family! She always said" Come sit down and tell me what's new" I loved sitting, drinking coffee, and playing cards with her! It was always competition between the girls and the guys, but in the end, it was just about spending time together!! There are way too few of people like her in this life time of ours!! I for one feel SO BLESSED to have known and Loved her!! She will always be remembered and Missed!! Thank you so much for sharing her with me!! Hugs to you all for I can only guess the huge hole that is left in all your hearts!!
