Ruby Jo was the 3rd of 8 children and came from a lively, good-natured and fun-loving family.

She fired ceramics in her kiln, wrote short stories, quilted, cooked and enjoyed life at home.

She expressed to her children that she has lived a long life full of wonderful memories and was ready for the next step. Ruby Jo has requested a family-only graveside service.
