Ruby started her life of independence at a very young age. When she was 14, she moved to Shellbrook and began her career of 27 years with SaskTel. During this time, she met her husband Laurence and they moved to Prince Albert where they made a home and had three children.
Ruby only had 3 biological children but was a “mom” to so many others. Everyone always knew that Ruby’s door was never locked when they needed somewhere to go or someone to talk to. On most days, Ruby would be found rolling smokes at the kitchen table or baking bread for the many mouths she had to feed.
Many people passed through her open door over the years, some stayed longer than others. She was a dedicated care giver for individuals with special needs and helped them overcome obstacles and challenges just like a “mom” would do. No one was ever turned away.
If Ruby wasn’t working at home, she was at her other job. She would be there six days a week, 8 hours a day and loved every minute of it. Ruby dedicated her life to helping others and has had an impact on so many lives. Ruby was nothing less than an amazing woman and she will be forever loved and remembered.
Even though Ruby was forever working she always had time for her children and grandchildren. Her grandchildren loved her witty come backs and how they never had to guess what Granny was thinking because she said everything like it was. Ruby’s grandchildren were loved by her more than anyone could imagine, and her memory will always be with them.
Ruby was predeceased by her parents: Walter and Katherine Hintz; her 2 brothers: Clifford and Edwin; her sister: Tilly; her brother-in-law: Tom; her great friend: Irene Byers; her family friend: Glen Nelson “Squiggy”; and her husband of 39 years: Laurence.
Ruby is survived by her daughters: Rona Tolley (Brett) and Crystal Gale (George); her son: Grant Gale (Connie); her grandchildren: Kobi (Brandi), Ryley (Tyler), Morgan, Kiarra (Ashton), Kalista (Thomas) and Kashton; her brothers: Ron and Tom Hintz; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Please join the family of Ruby Florence Gale to celebrate the life of an amazing woman who left us just as gracefully as she lived. Everyone who knew Ruby is welcome to come and celebrate her life. As per Ruby’s wishes this is a come and go celebration. Ruby’s life will be celebrated between 1:00PM – 4:00PM on January 3, 2020 at the Elk’s Hall located at 93 – 8th Avenue East in Prince Albert, SK.
