Ruby Evelyn Zumstein

The Lord called her and she answered his call on the afternoon of December 2, 2019. Ruby was born April 3, 1928 on the home quarter section farm near Tyner, Saskatchewan. She grew up on the farm and met and married Alymer in 1947. Her life revolved around her family, she always had coffee on for family or visitors. Ruby was a long time member of the Emmanuel Lutheran Church, starting as a Sunday School Teacher back in the 50's. She worked in health care at Extendicare, and then later at the Moose Jaw Union Hospital. After living in Temple Towers she came to live with her daughter Joan, for four and a half years. When the Alzheimer's got too much she moved into Extendicare for six months, then transferred to Pioneer Lodge for the last year of her life. Ruby was predeceased by her mother and father; her husband Alymer (1984); great-grandchildren Paul and Kalysta; her sisters Rosa, Silvia, and Betty; her brothers John, Arnold, Alvin, Edward and Carl. Ruby is survived by her six children, Linda, Carol, Joan (Ralph), Marcus (Carole), Ken (Dara),  and Jerry (Debbie); her seventeen grandchildren; her twenty-five great-grandchildren; her three special nieces Maxine Jacobson, Darlene Hall and Marlene Romanycia; her three sisters, Ruth Greenacres, Darlene (Fred) Johnson, and Marie (Gene) Easterby; and her one brother, Raymond (Doreen) Saathoff. We would like to thank Dr. Janzen, Dr, Veermak, and Dr. VanHeerden and the wonderful staff at Pioneer Lodge for their compassionate care. A Celebration of Ruby's life will be held Saturday, December 14th, at 10:30AM at the Emmanuel Lutheran Church, 15 Paul Drive, Moose Jaw. Reverend John Kreutzweiser will officiate. Interment will take place at Sunset Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, for those so inclined, memorial donations can be made to the Emmanuel Lutheran Church or to a charity of choice.
