Obituary Condolences

GREENWICH N.Y. -- Ruth Phoebe LeBarron, 96, died peacefully at her home on Sunday, Dec. 17, 2006. She was the widow of Melvin Jay LeBarron, Jr., who died in 1999.

Born in Cambridge on June 15, 1910, she was the daughter of John and Minnie Granger Barber. Ruth and Jay were married in 1928.

Ruth and Jay bought a farm in Vly Summit in 1943, which they ran for 52 years. Ruth was a “farmer’s wife” with all the jobs and responsibilities that were involved. Those, along with raising four children, kept her very busy.

They moved to Greenwich in the early 90’s. Since her husband’s death, Ruth has lived on her own with her parakeets, 10 at the time of her death, and her telephone to keep her company. She enjoyed plants and gardening and loved to read. She enjoyed talking to friends and family about “the good ole days.” She had the opportunity to travel to Hawaii at least seven times to visit her daughter who lives there.

Survivors include three daughters, Vivian Murphy of Honolulu, June Dixson and Yvonne LeBarron, both of Greenwich; two sons, Clyde LeBarron of Vly Summit and Stanley LeBarron of Easton; 13 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren and nine great-greatgrandchildren.

Friends and relatives are invited to call on Thursday, Dec. 21, 2006 at the Ackley & Ross Funeral Home, 73 West Main Street, Cambridge from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. There will be a short funeral service with time for sharing memories at 1 p.m.

Burial will be at Woodlands Cemetery in Cambridge.

Memorial donations are requested made to the Greenwich-Easton Rescue Squad, Box 84, Greenwich, NY 12834.
