Devoted to community service, Ruby served on the Marion County Fair Board and volunteered once a week at the Marion County Food Closet. She also served as the Medical Badge Counselor for the Boys Scouts of America. She was an accomplished artist of acrylics and watercolor paintings, needlework, and could play the dulcimer and autoharp. Ruby was a member of the PALS Art Club and a member of the senior citizens "Good Time Ukulele Band". She loved to travel with her friends from church, and the "On the Road Again" Gang. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her no matter the length of friendship and remembered in our hearts forever.
