Oceanside, CA — Ruth O. (Todd) Dube passed away peacefully at her home, after 91 wonderful years. She will be missed greatly by her family and all who came to know her.
Born in Salem, Mass., she graduated from Lawrence High School, Class of 1940.
She served as a Navy Corpsman from 1943 to 1945, with U.S. Marine Corps at Parris Island, S.C. She was one of the Rosie the Riveters.
She was married on December 8, 1946, to Charles A. Dube. In 1955, after many moves around the country, they came to Garden Grove, Calif., and finally to Oceanside, Calif., in 1962.
Ruth loved gardening, travel, puzzles and hummingbirds.
She is survived by her loving husband of 67 years; their five children, Cyndi, Charlene, Todd, Chuck, and Craig; six grandchildren, Eric, Adam, Kirsten, Bailey, Taylor, and Hailey; and five great-grandchildren, Autumn, Courtney, Noah, Jordan, and Aubree; and extended family throughout the East and West Coasts.
She maintained her Massachusetts’s roots by never losing her East Coast accent and her love for all sports.
