    I will always remember her at all the Chiefs games directing traffic with a big smile on her face. My fondest memory is Dr. Frick & Frack. She could always get young and old to chuckle with her silly antics. Rest in peace, Miss RubyI

    Regina and family: We are so sorry to hear of your mother’s/grandmother’s passing. Ruby was a longtime volunteer at the VA Hospital in Kansas City with VVA 317’s Ice Cream Visit. We could always count on her to be there to give out ice cream and cookies to the patients. She always had a wonderful smile on her face, and a kind word. Ruby will be greatly missed. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this time.
