On January 19, 1930 in the middle of a Harford County, MD blizzard, the late Mary Emma (Blevins) Comer, the dear wife of the late Charles Guy Comer gave birth to triplets: Ralph, Ruby and Ruth. Charles kept them warm by the fire until the next day when the doctor was finally able to get to the home. Ruby was one of eleven children born to this union and the last child to pass.
Ruby was a talented seamstress, having worked for various sewing factories located in Stewartstown, Fawn Grove, Jacobus and Adamsville, PA, retiring when her late husband did in the mid 1990’s. They both then worked for several years at the Cr’s Friendly Market in Stewartstown. She enjoyed playing cards, was an avid Baltimore Oriole fan and loved to listen to bluegrass/gospel music. Ruby was strong in her Christian faith and was a charter member of Tabernacle Regular Baptist Church in Collinsville, PA.
