Ruby Lynn Abarr, age 59, passed peacefully away in the early hours of November 8 after a courageous seven-year fight with breast cancer.  She was a loving mother of four, and adoring friend to very many.

She was born April 25,1963 in Oakland but lived in Arcata her whole life. She loved to travel, fish, craft and go to the local beaches to look for agates. Her rock collection is out of this world!

Everyone who knew her knew how much love she had to give, and her sense of humor was something else. She always wanted to see the seven wonders of the world and now may she see those travels.

The world could always use one more Ruby in it! She now gets to fly with the birds and the butterflies and look upon all of us from above.

Ruby is survived by her daughters Renee White and Nicole Ward-Conant. Her son’s Aaron Weimer and Chris Ward. Her brothers Marc VanCleave and Randy Gomes. Her Sisters Ronda Ford and Cindy VanCleave. She will be greatly missed, appreciated and never forgotten.
