ROTA, Ruby Jean

Our precious Ruby passed away at home surrounded by her family on Wednesday, May 24, 2017 at the age of 7. She is survived by her parents Wes and Heather; sister Poppy; brother Smith; her dogs Cash and Coco; grandparents Terry and Deborah Rota and Robert and Deborah Taylor; and aunties Jaime Taylor and Corina (Johan) Hammarström and cousin Gavin.

Ruby loved to travel, especially to Hawaii and Disneyland. She also loved to sing and dance, dressing fancy and drinking tea. Most of all she liked to be at home with her family and dogs enjoying all of the flower gardens. She was a princess in training.

A Funeral Service will be held on Monday, June 5, 2017 at 1:00 pm at Trinity Baptist Church, 1905 Springfield Road, Kelowna.
