I'm so, so sorry to learn of Ruby's passing! From as early as I can remember, even when way back when we lived in John Schievenin's house by the cemetery road, Ruby was a household name. So very many and wonderfully precious memories of growing up in the close circle of friends that the Millers and the Hoehns and the Schneiders were, back in those days. My love and prayers are with you!
