Ruby Elise (Sunde) Borsheim

Ruby Elise Borsheim, 97, of St. Cloud, died on Saturday, March 2, 2002, at her home in Waite Park.

Services were at 10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, March 5, at Bethlehem Lutheran Church, St. Cloud. A memorial service and interment was held later Tuesday at Nordland Lutheran Church, rural Paynesville.

Ruby was born Jan. 20, 1905, the eighth of ten children born to Kari (Carrie) and Edvard Sunde of Roseville Township, Kandiyohi County. She attended school through eighth grade and then worked at home and as a "hired girl" in neighboring homes and Paynesville.

She married Arnold Borsheim on Sept. 29, 1934. They moved to St. Cloud in 1942. Ruby baked and sewed to add to the family income. After Arnold's death in December 1956, she began doing custom sewing and alterations on a full-time basis, a skill she used until age 85.

She was an avid gardener and member of the St. Cloud Flower and Garden Club, and was honored with a state award. She was a charter member of the Trollheim Lodge 1-511, Sons of Norway. She also sewed quilt tops for Lutheran World Relief at Bethlehem Lutheran Church.

She is survived by her daughter, Janet Gray of Waite Park; three grandsons; two great-grandchildren; a sister, Clara Borsheim of Paynesville; and a brother, Henry Sunde of Paynesville.

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Arnold; brothers, Conrad, John, and George Sunde; and sisters, Jennie Nelson, Emma Christenson, Stella Christenson, and Esther Jacobson.
