Compilers notes: Ruby was my mother in law for about 38 years. I learned many things from her. One of them was that I'd never be telling those mother in law jokes. This lady was good as gold.
I've told this story often because it taught me a good lesson.
Around 1970 or so, Mom (Ruby) picked me up to go shopping with her. We were at K & B Drugstore in the Houma mall when another lady was coming toward us with her shopping cart. Mom said "Hello, ____, how are you?". To my utter amazement, the lady actually stuck her nose in the air and walked past us. "Mom!, I'm stunned. That lady snubbed you!" "Yes", Mom said "she always does."
I asked "So why do you keep telling her hello?" "Because" Mom said "I have to look at myself in the mirror every day and I know I did the right thing. She is the one who has to live with herself." That gave me a lot of food for thought and I never forgot the incident.
I had the honor of writing the above obit. She truly was a lady in every sense of the word and I will admire her, respect her and be thankful for her influence in my life until the day I die.
