  1. A memory to Ruby’s family:

    Deeply saddened at the passing of Ruby, my schoolmate and friend. Our family moved into the Ottery Community Of Iron County, Missouri (over 80 years ago) and I met Ruby at the local Bell School. During those years the classes were small and the older students sat two to a desk. There were 3 or 4 of us girls that squabbled over sitting by Ruby. Ruby was a quiet, kind individual and we were drawn to her unchanging gentle spirit. I was thrilled at winning at some of the squabbles and always felt proud to sit beside this special child of God.Through the years we only met at cemetery gatherings, but I have always carried special memories of Ruby. May God Comfort and Bless your family during these difficult days!

    Goodbye, Ruby and I will always remember you!!!

  2. To the Family:

    Another staple has left us with only good memories….which is who they are, the Ott Goggin Family. The Fryman’s grew up with them on Ottery Creek in Iron County, MO.
    Ruby was in my brother Elwin’s class at Bell grade school. We lost Elwin in 2016 and now another member of the Ottery Community has left us.
    Ruby was a quiet one but a beautiful, always friendly lady, and she will be sorely missed.
    We send our love and best thoughts to her family with special mention of the youngest still living, Donna.
    I have a picture showing Ruby and her sisters and one brother… in it Ruby is the one not looking at the camera… I am sure she is now looking in the faces of those of her parents and her siblings who have gone before her.
    May she rest in peace as she knew she would be missed.

  3. My aunt Ruby, born the sixth child to Tony and Ethel Goggin, was also preceded in death by her brothers James Goggin, Paul Goggin, Robert Goggin and Gerald “Jerry” Goggin; and her beloved sisters Mildred Giles, Opal Bell, Shirley Crocker, Joann Crocker, Doris Wingerter, Frances Lincoln and Carol Shy. She is survived by her youngest sister, Donna Mills.

    Ruby was a special sister to them all, and a special aunt to me, my sister Jerri and dozens (and dozens) of our cousins.

    And she will be missed by us all.

    My condolences to my cousin Cheryl, Shannon and Carla Coleman and Randy Dillon.
