About Ruby Tanner

A treasured friend and our long-time calendar editor, Ruby Reynolds Tanner, succumbed to a devastating stroke in September 2017. Ruby was the honorary sister of our publisher, Kitty Fleischman, and will be missed especially for her sweetness and kindness. Our deepest sympathies go to her husband of more than sixty years, Dr. Leslie Tanner (shown with her) and their children, Michelle (Miki) Tanner-Bendickson, and Michael Tanner. Ruby loved rodeos and farmers’ markets, and toured many an antique store with Kitty. She loved eating lunches out, and had a kind word for everyone she met. Aptly named, Ruby was a jewel in every sense.
