Ruby left school at Grade 8 to help with farm and housework. At Bethany Bible Institute, Hepburn, Sask., she met Abe. After 9 years in Mildred, Sask., where Abe was teaching, they spent 46 years in Glenbush, Sask. Besides homemaking, Ruby was a dedicated gardener, janitor, 4-H instructor, Sunday school teacher, artist, seamstress and caregiver. Her hospitality was a trademark; many people will now miss the card or phone call wishing them a happy birthday.
