I’m sad learning of the passing of this sweet & amazing lady. I worked with Ruby at NAS Kingsville for years, and it was always a pleasure to interact with her. She was always very sweet to me, and I knew she was my friend. I have no doubt she is in heaven enjoying the fruits of her well lived life for her Lord. She was a wonderful example of a good, Christian woman who loved her Lord, her family and was a true asset to the base and to any group or association she belonged. She will be missed. Blessings and prayers for her family and all who love Ruby.

Words cannot convey the sorrow I feel for your family. Ruby was a kind and loving soul to me and everyone she came in contact with. I think this is the quality that so many people will think of when remembering her. God bless Ruby and may her soul rest in peace. She certainly deserves all her heavenly rewards now that her time on earth is over.
