About Ruby Bates

Ruby was just a wonderful person. Born in Shelby County Illinois she had 2 Brothers and 6 Sisters. She moved through life like a Gypsy traveling around to help out her family. Central Illinois, Janesville Wisconsin, Joliet Illinois, Kokomo Indiana, the Chicago Area, Madeira Beach Florida and San Diego California were just some of her stops.

In her later years she lived with Ed Baxter (her brother) Diane Baxter Daniels Hayden (her niece), Pat Baxter Doyle (her niece) and Tom Doyle, and finally with Evelyn Doyle (her friend and Tom’s mother).
