Ruby was born in John Street Northwich to John Samuel and Edith Anne Latham she was their only daughter and was called Ruby because her mother thought she was a jewel.

They settled in John Street moving to Greenbank and finally living in Victoria Road she was widowed in 1978. During the war Ruby worked on a crane at Byley putting wings on Wellington Bombers. Later she was a mid-day assistant at "Vicky" (Victoria) Road School where she warmed many of the children's cold hands in her warm hands. She will also be remembered for pulling a loose tooth giving a sweet afterwards and for blowing a whistle to get the children in the shed when it was raining. Retiring after 23 years to enjoy her family lovingly undertaken she is now gladly reunited with loving husband George. She enjoyed the music of Strauss poems and watching "soaps" on television. Ruby was a very special lady who touched the lives of many she will be sorely missed by her sons Brian and John daughter in law Amanda and two grandsons.
