MILESTONE: Ruby Jerline Stahl


Ruby Jerline Stahl, 78, died Aug. 9, 2012. She was from Luther, Okla. For the past 26 years, Ruby directed the Luther Community Center a few miles east of Edmond, Okla. The Church of Christ ministry serves low-income families in rural Oklahoma County. Ruby ran this organization as it collected and distributed food, clothing, appliances, furniture, and other needed things to families in need.
The countless hours of labor, often in sweltering heat or frigid cold and the many hours on the phone seeking donations to fund the center transitioned from a job to a lifestyle for Ruby. Ruby seemed to never tire — she was always on the go. The days and weeks that followed the 2012 fire that devastated the Luther community may have been Ruby’s shining moment. From sunup to sundown Ruby was on the go doing all that she could to help the families who had lost everything in the flames. She made her life a reflection of Jesus’ “I didn’t come to be served but to serve” philosophy. She bettered the lives of thousands and thousands because she just wouldn’t stop.
Thank you Ruby for shining your light for all to see.
