Ruby Margaret Flack was born on a farm in Bristol township, Greene county, on Sept. 22, 1903. She was the daughter of Alfred Thomas and Mary Luella Andrew Flack.
Ruby was raised on the family farm and attended rural schools until her family moved to Churdan. She continued her education in the Churdan school system and graduated from high school in 1925.
Ruby stayed at home and cared for her parents. After her mother's death in 1947, Ruby remained in the family home. In 1947 Ruby started working for the Jefferson Bee and Herald newspapers as a news correspondent. She retired in 1983 from the newspaper.
Ruby served as custodian for First Baptist Church in Churdan for 40 years. She served as the Sunday school secretary and was a longtime member of the church, where she belonged to various church groups.
She died Nov. 30, 2000, at CLC-Jefferson where she had been a resident since 1993.
Preceding Ruby in death were her parents; six brothers, Roy, Ralph, Alta, Alva, Floyd and Dewey Flack; and four sisters, Linda Hurdle, Laura Yeager, Mary Wright and Ruth Wing. She is survived by several nieces and nephews.
