Ruby was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother and great grandmother that was devoted to her family; including her beloved pets. She loved cooking for her family and according to them was one of the best cooks in Texas. Ruby inherited the nickname “Racing Ruby” because she often times was known for her lead foot. She was strong in her faith and was active in many church activities. Ruby was a staunch supporter of her Democratic Party. Her front door was always open to friends who could stop by at 4 pm for a cup of coffee, a heated card game of Shanghai or if it was after 9 pm, they could enjoy a hot toddy and a Larry King Live episode. Ruby will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved her.
