Born February 14, 1915 in Fairview, Utah. Daughter of Francis Marion Tucker and Mary Malinda Peterson. Married her dear husband, Keith Stewart Hansen October 3, 1934 in the Manti Temple of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

Ruby lived a life of dedicated service to the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints where she served faithfully in the Fairview North and Third Wards in the Relief Society, Young Women, and Primary organizations. She was a member of the Daughter of the Utah Pioneers. Ruby served and supported her husband in his many civic and church callings throughout their marriage. She was a 4-H leader and a member of the Sanpete County 4-H Advisory Council.

Ruby left this earthly life with a rich legacy of love as she served others with kindness and hospitality. She had an honest soul and a vibrant heart. She was a strong example to her three children, 14 grandchildren, 23 great-grandchildren, and one great great-grandchild. Ruby was a determined and delicate woman who loved to quilt, garden, arrange flowers, and cook. She often gathered her loved ones around her kitchen table for traditions and family gatherings. She taught her family the importance of feeding a soul through a warm cooked meal. Ruby truly knew how to love people by taking the time to care for them and be with them. She will be remembered by her grandchildren for her home, as it was always a safe haven filled with warmth and care.
