March 24, 1943 - December 3, 2021
Ruby Jean Campus was born at Mt. Carmel Hospital in Detroit, Michigan on March 24, 1943. She died on December 3, 2021 at Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, Michigan. As most of the family now live out of the state we planned a Memorial Service for what we hope will be better weather. Ruby neither married nor had children, but she loved every child she knew. She was happiest teaching them how to swim and all the water safety rules. She would make up games to help them learn to breath and keep their eyes open when under water. Especially with the girls, and there were many, she loved teaching all about ceramics so they could make gifts for their family and friends. She always planned her garden so she could watch the wildlife run around the flowers, sometime stealing the pedals right off the plant. Ruby was predeceased by her parents, George W. Campus and Jeanette (Houston) Campus of Royal Oak. Also, two sisters: Beverly Lockhart and Patricia Morris, two nephews: Michael and William Lockhart and two nieces: Phyllis McVicar and Elizabeth Nutt (Lindley). She is survived by three sisters: Georgine Campus, Sharon G. Nutt and Mary P. McVicar, one nephew: Dan McVicar and five nieces: Catherine Lockhart Schrader, Carol Nutt Miller, Christine McVicar Curtis, Deann Morris and Lindsay Morris Mullinax, five great-nephews: Raymond Miller (Darcey), Justin Lindley, Cameron McVicar, Ethan Zajkowski (Emily Tucker), and Samuel Mullinax and eight great-nieces: April and Amber Schrader, Neoma and Jeanette Lindley, Kylie McVicar, Raina and Alexandra Zajkowski and Kinslay Morris. In lieu of flowers, the family has suggested memorials to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, Shriners Hospitals for Children, ASPCA or a charity of your choice. Arrangements entrusted to Wm. Sullivan & Son Funeral Home, Royal Oak.
