Ruby C. Hope

FITHIAN — Ruby C. Hope, 75, of Fithian, passed away at 7:17 a.m. Saturday, May 11, 2013, at her home. Her loved ones were at her side.

Ruby was born on Nov. 4, 1937, to Toby and Susie Wyatt in Glasgow, Ky.

She married Cecil Hope on March 16, 1951, in Glasgow Ky. He preceded her in death on April 20, 2005.

Ruby is survived by her son, Tobi (Brandy) Hope of Bloomington; daughter, Penny (Phillip Sams) Woolwine of Kingman, Ind.; daughter-in-law, Effie Jean Hope; grandchildren, Brent, Brandi, Max and Ella Hope; and great-grandchildren, Brooks Enos and Brayden Hope.

She was preceded in death by her sons George and Robert Hope in 1995; infant daughter, Loretta Jane; infant grandson, Brian Hope; her parents; her eight brothers and sisters; and son-in-law David Wooline.

A graduate of Glasgow High School, Ruby dedicated her life to looking after people and worked as a caregiver up until two weeks prior to her death.

A skilled Euchre card player, she liked to dance and was always up to trying her luck at the riverboats. Ruby was a member of the Moose Lodge, she sold at the farmer’s market for 25 years and, as an accomplished chef, Ruby enjoyed cooking for her family almost as much as they enjoyed eating her meals. Above all else, Ruby loved her family, friends and the people she looked after through her work.

A celebration of Ruby’s life will begin at 10 a.m. Wednesday, May 15, at Oakwood Sunset Funeral Home Chapel, with the Rev. Dennis Anglin officiating. Burial at Stearns Cemetery. A visitation will be 5-8 p.m. Tuesday, May 14, at Sunset Funeral Home and Cremation Center, A Life Celebration Home in Oakwood. Memorials may be made in Ruby’s name to Carle Hospice Program.
