Ruby Care is excited to launch our new blog entitled, “Seniors of Significance.” We will be sharing stories of seniors who have made an impact on their world. We believe that seniors have a lot of exciting information and history to share, and we want to be a part of that.
We are starting with Ruby Grace because she has definitely impacted our world — she is the namesake, inspiration, motivation for our company, “Ruby Care.” She is also the mother-in-law of Joyce Logan, one of Ruby Care’s founders.
You can visit our website at https://www.rubycaresenior.com/ruby—our-namesake.html to learn some things about Ruby. However, I am going to tell you a few more things about her. Ruby’s favorite color is red — because of her name…but, she does like blue as well. Her best childhood memories are of her family farm in Honey Grove, Texas — picking cotton and getting promoted by her dad to weighing the cotton and carrying water to help.
Her favorite subject in school was Math, which must have been a big part of the reason she grew up to be a Vice President at a bank. She sang in the choir at church and was the church Treasurer for many, many years. Her favorite hymn is “Amazing Grace” which is also a nickname her husband, Jim, gave her. She has a plaque outside her apartment with the words of that song.
Ruby is 97 years young and lives in an independent living community in Plano, Texas.
Getting ready for the Derby
