February 28, 1929 - July 25, 2023
In loving memory ~
We are saddened to announce the passing of Monica Amy Ruby on July 25th, 2023 at Parkview Place, Enderby, B.C.
Monica was born on February 28, 1929, in Mervin, Saskatchewan to Douglas and Blanche Sandeman-Allen. Monica attended school in Mervin until grade four when she left to help on the family farm.
Monica moved with her parents to Armstrong, B.C. in 1947 where she met and married the love of her life, Charlie Ruby. The two of them farmed in Armstrong from 1950 to 1973 when Charlie retired. After Charlie's retirement they moved to Enderby to continue farming until Charlie's passing in 1992. In 2013 Monica moved back to Armstrong where she resided until her health failed.
Monica was dedicated to her family and her faith. She is survived by her children; Grace (David) Simpson, Lillian (Robert) Ternier, Lucy (Michael) Whitbread, Alma Henton, Alfred (Janet) Ruby, Gail Ruby, Heather (Terry) Niemi, Mark (Angela) Ruby, Douglas (Michelle) Ruby, 21 grandchildren, 28 great grandchildren, her honorary son, John (Linda) Coates, as well as her sister, Rhona Norris, and a large extended family.
Monica welcomed everyone into her home like they were family. She loved to travel and was active in her church community for over 60 years including Women's Aglow Fellowship.
