Ruby Eileen Fisher, 78, of Beatrice, NE, formerly of Cordova, NE, passed away on Saturday, December 31, 2022, peacefully at her home surrounded by family.
She was born on February 13, 1944, at Good Samaritan Hospital in Kearney, NE, the daughter of Ernest Maxwell and Edith (McTavish) Hibberd. Ruby was raised around the Kearney area until moving to Riverdale in 1955. She was a 1962 graduate of Amherst High School.
On August 6, 1964, Ruby was united in marriage to Lowell Fisher at Mt. Calvary Lutheran Church in Marysville, KS. She was baptized at St. John’s Lutheran Church in Cordova, NE in 1967. Two children were born into this union, Craig, and Melynda. The family lived in Cordova, Nebraska, where Ruby and Lowell owned Fisher’s Locker until they sold it in 1975. They briefly lived in Friend until Lowell’s passing in 1995 and then Ruby moved to Beatrice.
Ruby was a dedicated housewife and mother, always putting her children first. She enjoyed traveling with her family, bowling, playing golf, attending all her children’s events, and was an avid Nebraska Cornhusker fan enjoying volleyball the most.
Survivors include her children, Craig (Julie) Fisher of Beatrice, NE, Melynda Fisher of Harahan, LA.
