Ruby was proud to have served the San Lorenzo School District for 30 years, managing the cafeteria. Following her retirement she found great pleasure in various jobs, which were labors of love. She was energetic, involved, and loved people as was demonstrated by her volunteer work at Kaiser and by her membership in various service organizations such as The Moose Club and Eagles Club. She took great pride in her work with her husband and friends to form and serve the Ashland Little League.
She developed close and lasting relationships with friends in the neighborhood, where she lived for 61 years.
She was an avid fan of the local sports teams and was ecstatic to see the Giants win the World Series, for the second time. She loved life and will be missed by all who knew and loved her, but we take comfort knowing she is back in the arms of her beloved husband.
