Born in Nelson, BC November 30, 1909, she was predeceased by both her husband Tom and brother Gordon Lupton.

Ruby will be deeply missed by her son Lorne and daughter Marion Dallamore (Al); her grandchildren, Karen, Audrey, Doug, Caroline, Keith, Kelly and Jay; 18 great-grandchildren as well as her nieces and nephews.

Ruby’s family was dear to her heart, and could recite from memory the names the birthdates of all members of her family.

She was beloved and admired as a mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.

Ruby was active in a number of community and church affairs.

She was a lifetime member of the Anglican Church Women (ACW) as well as the Peace Arch Hospital Auxiliary.

Ruby was a co-founder of W.R. Meals on Wheels and she provided assistance to the W.R. Mental Health Society.

Ruby was an energized lady to her last days.

Her joy of swimming at White Rock West Beach with friends, and walks around the lakes continued to her 96th birthday.

Our sincere thanks to Dr. Larry Darby, the Peace Arch Hospital, and the management and staff of Evergreen Baptist Home for their care and kindness in making Ruby’s final days as comfortable as possible.

A service to celebrate her good life will be held at St. Mark’s Anglican Church, 12952 – 20th Ave, Surrey, on January 3, 2006. at 11:00 a.m.
