The following was written by Doris Boring, in loving memory of her sister Ruby Culbertson who went to be with Jesus on February 14, 2015, in Forest City, North Carolina.
Thoughts from the Baby Sister
Life as the baby sister was joyful and challenging. The twins, Norris and Doris, were always together and wanted to include Ruby in their fun and schemes, yet Ruby rarely wanted to be involved. They all had different interests. The twins always had fun together: riding bikes, skating, playing games, walking through mud puddles, and going to friends’ birthday parties.
Ruby was different from them. She wanted to do different things, and she had fun with other friends.
Ruby graduated from high school and went on to begin her life-long career at Roses Store. She went from one Roses to another and worked in many positions from clerk to office positions and to store management.
While not only working full-time at the store, Ruby devoted her entire life to caring for their mother and then caring for their older sisters. She spent a life of caring for others. She was always there for them.
It was not until their adult years that Doris and Ruby really enjoyed one other. They enjoyed sisterhood after Doris married and had a daughter. Ruby, being the caregiver that she is, devoted much of her time to helping Doris and loving on her niece. She made many visits to Florida for Disney and beach trips. She loved adventures and a good time.
Ruby was always ready for a good time. She loved family gatherings and trips. She spent many long hours on car rides to visit family. Her family was her life and she loved to have a good time.
We will always remember our Ruby Duby and the good times we had at the place where she called Home.
