One of the sweetest ladies ever!!!! Loved me some Ruby Duby!!!!

MerleAnn, was so sorry to hear about your Mom. My prayers be with you.

i’m so sad to hear this sweet lady has passed and God’s hands.
she and her sweet husband work totally one of my mentors and sweet friends.
I know jack and MerlAnn will know that it is our loss as well as theirs.

Surely a blessing having Ruby and Swede in your best interest while growing up at Our Savior's Lutheran Church. Wonderful memories. Always that overwhelming smile like she knew what you were thinking and the many hugs she gave to let you know she cared. Special friend to many.
