In Memory of Ruby K. Hargus
Ruby K. Hargus
LANCASTER: Ruby K. Hargus, 99, went home to be with the Lord on December 5, 2010.
Ruby was born August 13, 1911 in Cicerone, West Virginia to the late Rome and Lula Edwards. She spent her younger days on Ambler Ridge where she met the love of her life Jarrel Hargus. They were married July 10, 1938 and later relocated to the Lancaster, Ohio area.
Ruby retired from Shaw's Restaurant after 30+ years of service. She spent most of her later years volunteering at The Salvation Army in the adult day care, wrapping CHRISTmas gifts and, visiting Nursing Homes with the League of Mercy. She enjoyed sewing for friends and family, recently helping with "Quilts of Valor" for our injured soldiers.
Grandma Hargus as we all called her, along with her daughter Nancy, working with the Quilting Buddies, have made over 30 Quilt of Valor quilt tops over the past several years.
Attached are pictures of quilts she made.
