Ruby B. (Clem) Sheets

April 3, 1941 ~ August 31, 2021 (age 80)


In Loving Memory of Ruby B Sheets

Ruby was a loving wife to Paul L. Sheets, who preceded her in death in 2014, and a loving mother who dedicated her life in raising and keeping track of her husband and 6 children.  Ruby was a petite spitfire of a woman who told you like it was, to never let things go unfinished, and worked rings around everyone.  She dedicated many years of her life taking care of the family farm, family members, and doing anything that anyone needed.  She even delivered one of her grandchildren.  She was an truly extraordinary lady.  Ruby was well loved by her 6 children Virginia Young, Danny Sheets, Teresa Shallas, Catherine Housemyer, Kimberly Courter, and Penny Koons.  Every one of her children called her every day and she felt really blessed to have such devoted children.  As such devoted children, we used to tease them (Mom & Dad) that we would do anything for them (like hide a body).  Since she had a small army of 6 children, there are bound to be grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great, great grandchildren.  Virginia’s crew Jamie, Karen, Holly, Krystal, and Monica.  Danny’s crew (Wife: Jamie) Clinton and Adam.  Terry’s crew (Husband: Pat) Amber and George.  Cathy’s crew (Husband: Dean) Ashley, Brandon, Shane, Jesse.  Kim’s Crew (Husband: Mike) Rachel, Samantha, Nick.  Finally, the baby of the family, Penny’s crew (Husband: Kris) Alexandria and Andrew.  34 Great Grandchildren and one angel and also 5 Great, Great Grandchildren.  Ruby’s favorite charities were St. Jude and Little Sisters of the Poor, if anyone would like to make a donation in her memory.  Even though she was loved and respected by not only family, there will not be a funeral. She didn’t want all of the fanfare.  The immediate family will hold a graveside service. Markland Funeral Home of Rising Sun, IN serving the family.
