In Loving Memory

Monica Amy Ruby

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.

    Praying for peace and comfort for Monica’s family and all those close to her. I remember Monica as a prayer warrior who loved to worship Jesus and dance before him! She was an amazing model of servant leadership and a blessing to all she encountered and she made a difference wherever she was. Her compassion and joy for life was evident in all that she undertook. Rest well, good and faithful servant. What a celebration it will be, when we are all together once again! Blessings, Lynn

    My condolences to all of the family and the great many people who loved Monica, and indeed whom she loved. Heaven rejoices, while we weep. This lady prayed for me, loved me and showed me true faith and courage, even her her final years. Her Living Faith (church) family will never forget the woman of faith and prayer that we had in our fellowship for several years. I’ll miss that smile, Monica and tenacious spirit!

    I would like to echo the prayer for peace and comfort for Monica’s family.
    Monica lived out her faith as a prayer warrior for her family and friends. To me she is my friend, I say is because although she is not present with us now, we who believe as she did in Jesus as Lord and Savior will see her again.
    Monica is my friend, she was my confidant and mentor who encouraged me in my walk with the Lord.
    I see her dancing now in heaven.
    To you her family and friends I pray the Lord will bless and keep you. I pray His face shine upon you and give you grace. ❤️Cindy
