Wanda May Ruble, 80, of New Point, passed away Saturday, Nov. 30, 2013 at Decatur County Memorial Hospital in Greensburg. 

The daughter of Cecil & Elva (Leonard) Pursley was born May 16, 1933 in Decatur County.

Wanda married Archie Ruble in Greensburg, June 30, 1951. 

She was a homemaker and did a wonderful job taking care of their six children. Making sure her children were well educated was important to her, so homework and schooling always came first in their family.

In addition to her loving husband, Wanda will be missed by her four daughters Rebecca (Randy) Schebler, Stella (Ronald) Pyles, Sandra (Gary) Hamer and Nelrose (Michael) Price, along with her two sons Thomas (Mary Beth) Ruble and Ernest (Ann) Ruble, plus her 10 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and her sister, Marjorie Warren.

She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings Richard Pursley, June Marticke and John Pursley.
