  1. Janet Wolff says:

    Ruby was like a second mother to me as we were growing up. Rest in peace, Ruby.

  2. Hazel Sander Sitz says:

    Ruby and I shared our love of music in high school. My parents were Vineyard Methodist Church friends of the Benjamin family. I remember visiting the Benjamin home and especially playing piano duets with Ruby. Those memories have come back to me fondly over the years, even though I have not seen Ruby for a long time. You have my sincere sympathy in your loss of a beautiful family member.
