It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ruby Gloria Dilsner on December 26, 2020, after a struggle with heart disease and leukemia. Ruby was born in Assiniboia, SK on June 7, 1946, the oldest of 4 children, and grew up on the family farm near Vantage. Ruby worked in the bank until 1965 when she married the love of her life, Sam Dilsner. They were blessed with 3 boys: Roger, Ed and Mark. Ruby and Sam lived on the family farm near Palmer until 1992 when they retired to Moose Jaw. Ruby and Sam moved to Saskatoon in 2019 to be closer to family.
Ruby was passionate about travel, gardening, cooking, and painting, but her greatest love was for her Lord and Saviour. Ruby spent many years teaching Sunday school and playing piano and organ at church. Ruby was a loving wife for Sam, a wonderful mother for her sons and then daughters-in-law. Later in life, she enjoyed the role of Grandmother for her ever expanding family. When Ruby’s health restricted her ability to travel, she kept in contact with a worldwide group of friends via social media. Ruby was eternally optimistic and always saw the best in people and situations.
Ruby was predeceased by her parents, Emanuel and Lilian Myers, and earlier in 2020, her son Mark. She is survived by her husband of 55 years, Sam, son Roger (Violet), son Ed (Carla), and Carol, and grandchildren: Stephanie, Kendra, Tyler, Kyra, Kaitlyn and Ian, and brothers: Martin (Rita) Myers, Newton (Ila) Myers, and sister Pearl Myers.
