Ruby Lamara Aylward, 95, formerly of Joseph and Elgin, died in her sleep on Sept. 2 in Gresham.

She will be cremated and buried with her husband of 67 years, William Quintin Aylward, in the Mountain View Cemetery in Walla Walla during a private service. Affordable Funeral Alternatives in Gresham is in charge of arrangements.

Ruby was born April 19, 1912, in Pomeroy, Wash. She later married William Q. Aylward, a farmer. They moved to Joseph in 1947, and in 1952 moved to Elgin, where they farmed for more than 45 years. She lived at the Fairlawn Good Samaritan Society nursing home in Gresham for the past three years.

Those who knew her say her passion in life was her family and their well-being; she always put others first. She was a Methodist.

She is survived by her children, Michael Aylward of Soldotna, Alaska, Richard Aylward of Gresham, Martina Aylward of Redding, Calif., and Berna Dean Frederick of Palmer, Alaska.
