Ruby Ann Fugate, 56, of Tempe, died on February 12th at approximately 4:15 PM in the afternoon at Mayo Hospital.
As the first daughter and second child of Clifford and Mildred Poor, both deceased, she was born in San Diego, CA on May 2nd, 1955 and grew up in Yuma, AZ. Ruby retired from Wells Fargo Bank after a twenty year career in loans and the trust real estate departments.
She is survived by her husband, Michael Carl Fugate, her two children, Ashley, 26, Jonathan, 15, of Tempe, and her younger sister Carol Poor.
She was predeceased by her older brother, Marlin Poor, who passed away only 5 hours earlier.
After a massive stroke in '10, by God's grace she defeated an extremely poor prognosis by not only surviving the 48 hours doctors had given her, but living a full 16 months after the stroke. However, after her kidney's started to shut down due to end-stage liver failure, her organs finally began to give out early February 12th, leading to her death.
Services will be held for Ruby Fugate on February 16th at 11am at First Southern Baptist Church of Phoenix, 3100 W Camelback, Phoenix, AZ 85017, with visitation beginning at 10am.
In lieu of flowers and in remembrance of Ruby's faithful life to the Lord, she would like donations made to the First Southern Baptist Church of Phoenix Benevolence Fund.
Arrangements entrusted to Tempe Mortuary, Tempe, AZ.
