Obituary for Ruby Pearl Passow

Ruby P. Passow, 92, of Alma Center, WI, formerly of Belvidere Township, Buffalo County, WI, died January 22, 2019 at Grand View Care Center in Blair, WI.

Ruby was born on October 23, 1926, in Fountain City, WI, to William and Pearl (Haeuser) Stuber. She married Hilbert W. Passow on July 18, 1946, in Cochrane, WI. They farmed in Buffalo County until they moved to Jackson County in 1965 and farmed in Garden Valley until 1996. They moved to the Village of Alma Center where Ruby resided until entering Grand View Care Center in Blair, WI, in August of 2016.

Ruby was a member of Grace Lutheran Church, Alma Center, WI. She enjoyed drawing cartoon characters from the newspaper when she was a teenager. She loved dancing at the Prairie Moon Pavilion and met Hilbert there. She worked very hard on the farm and enjoyed the cows, fields and nature. Ruby was known for her banana bread and Passow pickles, sending greeting cards, sewing, needlework, and patching. She taught her family to never waste anything and to reduce, reuse, and recycle before it became known. Ruby also loved to read and had a green thumb for plants and flowers.

We will all miss Ruby’s beautiful smile. She especially enjoyed her five grandchildren and eight great grandchildren.

We want to thank Ruby’s Alma Center neighbors, Bill and Sandy Flick, for friendship and care beyond measure. We also want to thank Ruby Pearl’s Grand View Care Center family for filling her last years with love, care, and happiness. She loved people with dimples and complimented anyone who had them.

Ruby is survived by her son, Duane (Barb) Passow; daughter, Nancy (Dale) Downer; brother, Milton Stuber; five grandchildren, Sheri (Dave) Decker, Greg Downer, Marci (John) Walker, Mark (Jeanette) Passow, Bob (Amanda) Passow; and eight great grandchildren.

She is preceded in death by her husband, Hilbert; siblings, Florence, Mabel, Solomon, Dorothy, Willis, Delores; and two twin granddaughters.

Memorial services will be held 11:00 a.m., Friday, February 1, 2019 at Grace Lutheran Church in Alma Center, WI with Pastor David Shudy officiating. Burial will follow at East Lawn Cemetery in Alma Center, WI.

Visitation will be held from 9:30 a.m. until time of services at the church on Friday.

Jensen-Modjeski Funeral Home is assisting the family with arrangements.
