Ruby was a fantastic wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt and friend.. Ruby was always willing to help anyone in need and made sure she would give you her last dollar if she knew you needed it. She loved going fishing and to yard sales with her sisters. One of her favorite things was playing cards and late-night breakfasts. Her family meant the world to her. We’d like to thank Hospice of Rockingham county for their services. Ruby’s hospice nurse Amanda who gave her exceptional care.
