Ruby L. Dalton, age 87 of Lincoln, NE went peacefully to be with her Lord Jesus on March 26, 2018 at Lakeview Assisted Living in Firth, NE.

Ruby was born to Jefferson and Stella (Edgar) Plumb on July 22, 1930 in Fairfax, MO, and she graduated from Fairfax High School in 1948.  She was swept off her feet by Kenneth Dalton on New Year’s Eve, 1949, and they began their happily-ever-after when they were married on September 8, 1950.  They were blessed with two cherished daughters, Deborah and Diana, and their family was made complete with the arrival of their beloved son, Daniel.

Ruby was adored by many, whether hosting coffee in her home of many years on West Avon Lane, giving out samples at grocery stores, or taking walks around her neighborhood.  She was a devoted wife, mother, sister, grandmother, and great-grandmother, as well as “mama” to her two pet parrots.

She is survived by her siblings:  Carl (Sharon) Plumb of Johnston, IA, Bertha (Charles) Anderson of Humboldt, IA, and Edgar Plumb of Lancaster, OH, as well as her children Deborah Dalton of Lincoln, NE, Diana Burden of Orchard, NE, and Daniel Dalton of Lincoln; grandchildren Justin Dalton, Matthew (Sarah) Burden, and Meghan (Nicholas) Leonard, great-grandchildren:  Nathaniel, Henry, and John Leonard, and many nephews, nieces and great-nephews and nieces.

She was preceded in death by her parents Jeff and Stella, her husband Ken, and her son-in-law Brad
