Although I only met Aunt Bee a handfull of times to my memory, I definitely felt her love for family. My last visit with her and Grandma Cris was at the age of 14. Dad (Paul Christensen) and I traveled cross country to visit. I remember the delicious pork roast she fixed-I make it for my family today. I had an earache and I remember her warm olive oil treatment. I remember being so welcomed and cared for not just during our stay but also afterwards. She bought me my first concert ticket-Howard Jones-Kyle and Jeff took me. Phone calls and cards were always filled with love. Thank you Aunt Bee for such fond memories and for being such a wonderful example of Christian love. I love you!

My Grandma was the matriarch on our family ever since the passing of my Mother 1986. I could turn to her for anything that I needed beit conversation, advise and or even a good meal or snack when I was in college. She was a constant example of what she instilled in my brother Bill and me. To be trusting, loyal and to live your life honorably and truthfully. I knew she was ill for a long time as I was kept abreast of her status through my cousin Sheri, and for that I am very grateful. Over the years Grandma and I spoke often. When I married Deborah she shared some of her favorite recipes that remind me of the holidays today. She shared her recipes for her famous Peanut Butter cookies and her Butterfinger Bars which she used to make every Christmas Season and which we attempt to make every holiday season. She also gave Deborah and I Grandma Cris's last quilt she made in 1957, upon our visit in Septemebr of 2006, for Granny's funeral. I will cherish it forever. I will miss her and honor her every year on her birthday by lighting a candle in our church here in San Antonio. She is in a better place, full of light and love and most of all she has her health back. She is with Grandpa Miller, my Mom and God. I am thinking of all of you and appreciate the messages and calls I got from other family members as well. Love and miss you all,Cris & Deborah Doe

We will miss you, Grandma. You were such a gracious and loving woman...a true lady in every sense of the word. So many fond memories, but it sure feels that you were taken too fast. Please rest peace. Love, Carol and Kids

I will miss this wonderful, caring, sharing lady!! It was always such joy to be around her and her upbeat outlook on life!! She never complained about any health problems she may have had but was only concerned about the health and welfare of others. She was even the chauffeur for those that couldn't drive so they could attend the Union Pacific Employees Club (formerly the U. P. Old Timers) luncheons. I loved her dry, quick wit and sense of humor.She will be greatly missed by many. What a pleasure to be a small part of her life!!

I am LuJuana Child's daughter and would like you to know how much I loved Ruby, from the time I was little I remember going to Dr. Kearns office and then having my mom do her hair forever. She was such a special lady and I will miss her. My mom will miss her terribly and will forever miss their lunch dates. Thank you for sharing her with us, it seems as though she was just a part of our family.
