Obituary of Ruby E. Shaffer

Mrs. Ruby E. Shaffer, formerly of Lovelton, passed away peacefully on February 12, 2010 at Olde Knox Commons Nursing Home in Huntersville, NC with family at her side. Born in Sayre, PA on March 5, 1922, she was the daughter of the late Howard and Florence (Oliver) Woodruff. For over 30 years, Mrs. Shaffer and her husband ran Shaffer’s General Store in Lovelton. In 2007 she was inducted into the Wyoming County Voter Hall of Fame, and in 1999 received a citation from PA Senator Charles Lemmond honoring her 51 years of service to the North Branch Township Election Board, most of those years as Judge of Election. Ruby’s kind and loving spirit earned her a host of friends whom she treasured and enjoyed visiting with. She was well known for her talented canning, cooking and baking abilities, and if anyone ever needed a helping hand, she could be counted on to be there for them. She was well loved by her adoring family and friends, and will be greatly missed and lovingly remembered by many. She was a member of Lovelton Bible Church and Mehoopany VFW Auxiliary. Surviving are three children and their spouses: a son, Gary Shaffer and his wife Terry of Greenfield, WI, a daughter, Connie Knolles and her husband Tom of Huntersville NC, a son, Richard Shaffer and his wife Sue of Media, PA. Survivors also include a sister, Marie Hicks of Sayre PA, five grandchildren, eight great-grandchildren, and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins. In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband of 49 years, Stanley F. Shaffer in 1992, and two brothers, Edward Woodruff and Richard Woodruff. A memorial service to celebrate Ruby’s life will be held at a date to be announced. Interment will be in Colley Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be directed to Lovelton Bible Church, c/o Doug Mills, RR 1, Box 1824, Laceyville PA 18623.
