    Ruby was a wonderful friend and beloved classmate of our Westminster High School Class of 1965. She was such a joy to know and to be around. I remember seeing her last at our class reunion in 2015. Please know her friends are praying for all of you. We loved her, and we know she loved us in return.

    I am so sorry to hear of Ruby’s passing. She graduated Westminster High School the same years as I and attended many of our class reunions. She was such a nice person and always had a smile for everyone. She overcame many challenges in her life, for which I respected her all the more. Her family has my deepest sympathy. Her classmates will miss her. Mary Singleton Harvey
