Ruby  Henke
The family of Ruby Henke of Lake Charles regretfully announce her passing from this life on July 31, 2018 at the age of 94. Ruby was born on September 9, 1923 in Eunice, Louisiana.

She travelled the world from the Far East to various U.S. Posts, to Europe as a military wife and mother of three girls. After her husband’s death in 1963, she returned to Lake Charles where she clerked for Muller’s Department Store. She had the good fortune to meet and marry Fred R. Henke (deceased), a chemist at W.R.

She is survived by her children and their spouses, Christine (Roy) Marcantel, Karen (Dale) Alexander, Jon (Trudy) Henke, Sue (Roger, deceased) Smith, Yvonne (Ron) Coleman, and Janice (Tim) Airhart. Ruby was blessed with thirteen grandchildren, sixteen great grandchildren, and eleven great-great grandchildren.

A special thank you to the wonderful staff of Amedysis Hospice Staff for their care, kindness, and compassion.
