Honoring the Life of Miss Ruby Bullock

May 5, 1915 - June 29, 2019

She was my neighbor, friend and inspiration. We shared a love for gardening and doting on my cat Asia.

She turned 104 on May 5th and died on June 29th. She will be sorely missed.

Her memory is preserved in the Oakwood Oral History Project and in this article in Walter.

“In spite of illness, in spite even of the archenemy sorrow, one can remain alive long past the usual date of disintegration if one is unafraid of change, insatiable in intellectual curiosity, interested in big things, and happy in small ways.”

Edith Wharton ~ A Backward Glance
