Dear Mary; please know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers. May you find peace knowing that Caroleen rest in the arms of Jesus. With love, Stephanie and Maya Grace
Please accept my condolences. Ruby is my 3rd cousin, and although we're the same age, and I lived in Axton, we never had the privilege of knowing each other except maybe briefly at a family reunion or the loss of an earlier shared loved one. It may seem unusual to grieve for someone you didn't really know, but still I do. May God strengthen you in your time of grief as you walk through this valley, confident in His presence at the end.

Ruby was a special lady. I loved talking to her and listening to her sing gospel songs at the Brian Center. I will be praying for the family. Susan Gusler
Caroleen was a special person to everyone she met. She was a good Christian and a great singer. Not everyone has perfect pitch when singing but Sister Caroleen had perfect and knew the words to a number of gospel songs. She will be sorely missed by everyone but she is in a better place she chose Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior many years ago. May God continue to watch over her family in this time of sorrow. But we have joy in knowing she is with her Savior now enjoying all the riches in His glory.
Please except my heart-felt sympathy, I know you will miss your dear Sister. May the "Memories" of good times always give you comfort in days to come. May God be with you, A Friend of the Family, Jewel

When Family Tradition came to play at the Brian Center, we looked for Ruby hoping she would be able to sing with us. When she would, we loved to hear her sing because we knew her heart was in the right place. Ruby was a shining example of Christ's love coming through the words of a song. She blessed us, especially when she sang "Thank You Lord For Your Blessings On Me". Prayers to the family from the Stowe Family and Family Tradition
