Tina Wilbur says
Mom (Ruby) was the best friend/mother-in-law anyone could have. She always listened well, never gave advice unless asked, and loved unconditionally. Though she was usually quiet and soft spiken she had a feisty streak that always brought a smile to my face. Her spirit was indominatable. She was the kind of person I will always strive to be. She was and always will be one of the biggest blessings of my life. To say I will miss her is an understatement.
Hailey W says
Ruby always loved scrabble, Gospel, music, skipbo, and tomatoes. She will be missed dearly for all of eternity. You are my sweet sunshine Ruby Lee. The stars have aligned for you and your beloved Jack. Until we meet again my dear. Xoxo
Michelle Wilbur says
Grandma’s laugh would tickle your soul and brighten any bad day. She could play cards and scrabble all day and would often beat your pants off. She was full of spice which was sweeter than spicy and her love was indomitable. She is missed greatly and our lives, made better by her, are forever changed because if her. I love you, Grandma!

I remember Ruby always having a smile on her face. I would go to visit Bob when we were kids and she always had that smile. I was very backward and would not eat supper when asked. She was not happy. I will miss her very much.
Scott Wilbur says
Always patient, loving and who’s laughter would lite up a room, love and will miss you Mom.
