Ruby Charlotte Erickson, 93, of Augusta died Sunday, March 30, 2008, in a Helena care center.

Ruby was born Aug. 27, 1914, in Augusta, the daughter of W.A. "Bud" and Violet M. Goss, one of the first homesteading families in the Smith Creek area west of Augusta. She was educated at the Cecil School on Smith Creek.

Ruby was a very talented, artistic person. She designed and made quilts that won awards at the state fair in Great Falls. She also made western shirts and other western clothing for many people, including Larry Gatlin.

Besides sewing, she enjoyed knitting, crocheting and crossword puzzles.

The family would like to thank Hospice of St. Peter's for all their dedicated service given to Ruby

She was preceded in death by her husband, H.E. "Swede" Erickson in April 1976; her parents; brother, Arthur Goss; and sisters and brothers-in-law, Lucille and Ivan Winebrenner and Opal and Bud Swanson.

Ruby is survived by her children, William E. Erickson of Helena, Charon Cook of Helena and Gloria and Mike Barrett of Jefferson City; sister-in-law, Irene Goss Hodgekiss of Choteau; 10 grandchildren; 20 great-grandchildren; five great-great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.

Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held at a later date in Augusta.
