Ruby retired from St. Mary’s Hospital after many years of devoted employment. She loved to sing gospel songs of joy such as “This Little Light of Mine” being her favorite; which she loved to sing in the Lincoln Senior Citizens Choir in Evansville. She lived her life as outlined in Luke 6:38 which states “Give and it will be given unto you.” Ruby thoroughly enjoyed catching a bus to local thrift stores or venturing through yard sales hoping to find a treasure to give as an endearing gift to her family or friends as tokens of love. Her hobby of painting figurines and bestowing them on birthdays and holidays to family and friends gave her joy. Her heart was as warm as her infectious laugh that was guaranteed to brighten your day! Ruby was a long time and devoted member of Nazarene Missionary Baptist Church led by Rev. Larry Rascoe Sr. where she served in the Circle of Faith Missionary Group and the gospel Rock of Ages Choir. Ruby is the last of the fourteen beloved offspring of Alonzo and Elnora Hackner.
