Ruby Ellen (Greene) Keith, age 84, of El Dorado Springs, MO, passed away at Community Springs Healthcare Facility on Friday, December 22, 2017. Ruby was born July 14, 1933, at Roscoe, MO, the daughter of Charles E. Greene and Mary Ellen (Barr) Greene.
Ruby attended Roscoe School twelve years. She married and had five children.
Ruby worked for the El Dorado Springs RII School as a custodian for 33 years. She loved working at the school, and she thought of everyone there as second family. Even after she retired, she would tell everyone that she missed working there, and if she were able she would have gone back to work. She made many friends there. Her grandkids would see her in the hallways and say “Hi, Grandma Ruby.” So the other kids started calling her Grandma Ruby. She loved them all.
Preceding Ruby in death were her father and mother, Charles and Mary Greene; and three grandchildren: Dustin Keith, Ashley Hillsman, and Chad Moore.
Survivors include her five children: Toni Hillsman and husband Mike of El Dorado Springs, Charlene Moore and husband Randy of El Dorado Springs, Frasa Johnson and husband Kirk of Stockton, MO, Sally Beisley and husband Scott of Harwood, MO, and Charles Keith and wife Tina of El Dorado Springs; grandchildren: Wendy Grubber and husband Johnny of El Dorado Springs, Brian Hargrave of Alabama, Becca Hillsman of El Dorado Springs, Nica Hillsman of El Dorado Springs, Cassandra Winning and husband Rand of Pleasant Hill, MO, Scott Johnson and wife Christy of Ottawa, KS, Misty Stantan and husband Jeremy of Stockton, MO, Keith Beisley and wife Kristy of El Dorado Springs, Samantha Cooper and husband Cole of Harwood, MO, Tamara Keith of Stockton, MO, Jared Keith and wife Liz of El Dorado Springs, and Justin Keith of El Dorado Springs; 25 great-grandchildren; and a lot of nieces and nephews.
