Ruby was born to Samuel and Della (Parker) Graham, in Bryan. She was a life long resident, who only moved away to follow her husband’s military career. She returned to Bryan to create her home for her children Teresa and Melinda. Ruby worked for several years at Nuches’ Grocery Store never meeting a stranger. She then worked for Lone Star Gas then went to TAMU where she retired from the Texas Agricultural Extension Service after many years. Ruby loved her family and friends; her door was always opened to welcome a friendly visit.
Preceding her in death were her parents; and her brother Sam Graham.
She is survived by her children, Teresa and Harley Robinson, Melinda and Bruce Lindsay; her sisters Bernice Lisenbe and Jeanette Hodges and brother-in-law Fred Hodges; her sister-in-law Donna Graham; her grandchildren Matt Belcik and his wife Julz, Mandi Belcik, Nathan Belcik, Brian Lindsay, Cameron Lindsay, Megan Lindsay; her great-grandchildren, Matthew Belcik Jr., Madison Parks, and Lauren Lindsay; her dear friend, whom she considered her daughter, Sabrina Fronterhouse; other relatives and friends. A special thank you to Family Hospice (Jenny, Heather, and April) for their loving care.
