Ruby Rose
(Age 90)

Our loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grand- mother, great-great-grand- mother, aunt and friend entered into rest with the Lord on Monday, May 30, 2011. She was born on December 15, 1920 to George and Delia Potvin in Okanogan, Washington the 12th of 14th children. Ruby is the last to join her brothers and sisters in Heaven with her beloved mother and father. We will miss her, but rejoice in her journey.
Ruby is survived by her husband Mansfield and their three sons M.G. "Boots" (Dawn), Bruce (Gloria) and Wayne (Brenda). Ruby and Mans have eight grandchildren, thirteen great-grandchildren and eleven great-great-grandchildren; and nieces and nephews, too numerous to count.
Ruby and Mans were married in Okanogan, WA on August 26, 1939. They would have celebrated their 72nd year together this year. Ruby and Mans lived in Omak for their first two years of their marriage. From there, they were in Spanaway, WA until 1949 when they moved to the Spokane area.
During her life Ruby worked at Betty & Lee's Cafe and Arnold's Hotel; but her hardest and most joyous job was raising her sons and keeping house for Mans. Ruby enjoyed camping, horse back riding, bowling and crocheting as well as going to Bingo, which she was good at.
Nothing was more important to Ruby than family; whether you were born into it or simply adopted into her embrace. You always knew you were loved and always welcome, no matter what. If you showed up at meal time you were fed; if you came early, you stayed until it was time to be fed. Ruby loved family reunions. It was her chance to catch up with family and reminisce about family. She could never get enough time visiting and now that she is in Heaven with so many of her loved ones; we can only pray that we will be blessed to join Ruby when time comes.
Graveside services will be held on Saturday June 4th, 10:00a.m. at Peone Cemetery, Mead, WA.
RIPLINGER FUNERAL HOME, 4305 N. Division, Spokane, WA 99207.
