Ruby P. Bettin

Sun City - Ruby P. (Bowling) Bettin, 83 of Sun City AZ, was called home by our Lord on June 27, 2020. Ruby was born on December 15, 1936 in East Bernstadt, KY, to John and Nealie Bowling. She was the fourth of eight daughters. Her family moved to Westmont, IL when she was 5 years old where she attended school, and in 1954, she graduated from Hinsdale Central High School. She married the love of her life Milton Bettin, had 4 daughters, and celebrated over 50 years of marriage. In 1972, the family relocated to AZ and eventually Milton and Ruby retired to Sun City.

Ruby's greatest joy was spending time with her family. She always welcomed family friends into her home with a smile and a hug.

She is survived by her daughters, Cindy Ingles, Jill (Mike) Soto, Kathy (Tom) Wienand, and Susan (David) Henderson.
