Our heart felt thoughts and prayers for her extended family. I always remember our family times at Mam's or her house. Her laugh always brought joy to the gathering.

Many fond memories of Aunt Ruby: Holiday meals at Mam's house, visits in Johnstown and in Florida, Wingard and Kring reunions. Aunt Ruby was always happy and laughing. Our twin sons Randy and Ryan couldn't remember her name when they were toddlers and called her "Aunt Lizzie" which she always thought was funny. Our condolences to Uncle Pete, Cousin Doak, and the family.

Sad to hear of Aunt Ruby's passing. I always thought she had a special "something" about her. Her laugh will always be fondly remembered. My thoughts to Uncle Pete and Doak and the entire family.
