Ruby and Bob....What great people!
Bob was so generous to make the aluminum signs for the
houses on the 1986 Sesqui Homes Tour. All of us homeowners treasure them.
And Ruby was such a caring person. Both of them made great contributions
to the community.
Sincere condolences to all the family,
Jerry and Phyllis

We will miss Ruby at our times together at Cottage 1. After every meal, Mom and Ruby would go to the living room and sit together. As I left, she always told me she would take care of Mom and I hugged them both and left knowing she was looking over her. A sweet memory. Love to you all. Beth and Bobbie
