Ruby Frank 1935 — 2017

Ruby Frank

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the death of Ruby Violet Frank (nee Rose) from cancer on August 8, 2017 at the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice in Kamloops, BC.  Ruby was just shy of her 82nd birthday.

Ruby is survived by her husband of 64 years, Jacob Frank.  Her children, Daryl (Lori) and Gary (Cindy) and grandchildren, Derek, Connor, Jacob and Madison.  Ruby is remembered by her sisters, Helen (Homer), Edith, Marjorie (Ron), Donna (Dennis), brother Lenard (Marnie) and numerous nieces and nephews.

She was predeceased by her parents Glenn and Violet, and siblings Harold, Elmer, Harvey and Elaine.

Ruby was born in Ogema, SK where she grew up, went to school and married Jake.   After they were married they worked the farm.  In 1959, they moved to Chase, BC where they ran several businesses including a hardware store, building supply centre and RV park.  Ruby worked side by side with Jake in every business.  In 1966, they started their family and continued to live and work in Chase.  Even retirement couldn’t slow Ruby down, she sold Mary Kay and Regal.

Ruby had a great love for her family and she enjoyed visiting and playing with her grandchildren and as they grew older teaching them to play cards.  Ruby loved going to garage sales and was always eager to show the great deals she made. She loved singing and music.  She was always happy when family got together to play music, often at the many parties she and Jake hosted at their home.  Ruby could always be seen with a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eye when she was planning some mischievous venture.

The family would like to say a special thanks to the staff and volunteers at the hospice who took loving care of Ruby

A celebration of Ruby’s life will be held on September 30th at 11am at the Lord of Life Lutheran Church, 2481 Sunset Dr. Kamloops, BC

Ruby will be greatly missed by her family.

In lieu of flowers, for those who wish to do so, we would appreciate donations made to the Marjorie Willoughby Snowden Memorial Hospice.  72 Whiteshield Crescent South, Kamloops, BC.  V2E 2S9
