Ruby was a graduate of Ephrata High School and the Reading Business Institute. In earlier years, she was a medical secretary for Ephrata Hospital. She then was a sales clerk for Donecker's and later for Michelle’s Hallmark. She enjoyed reading, word searches and especially enjoyed meeting new people.

In addition to her husband, Ruby is survived by her daughter, Kelli S. Petticoffer of Elizabethtown; her son, Steve Petticoffer of Ephrata; a grandchild; a great-grandchild and a brother, Lynn, husband of Johan Spotts of Ephrata.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a brother and sister-in law, Roger, husband of Miriam (Brumbach) Spotts.

Services will be private at the convenience of the family. Interment will take place in the Mohler's Brethren Cemetery.

Sorry to hear about Ruby's passing. She was always a such a nice person when we worked together at Doneckers. She always helped show me what to do when I helped in the store. Prayers for peace in the family. Kelley Miller
