WILLISTON, N.D. - On Feb. 1, 2007, Ruby Hagadone departed this earthly realm from the Bethel Group Nursing Home in Williston, to walk with God in His beautiful eternal garden of heaven.
Ruby Caroline was born on May 31, 1915 in Williston, to Norwegian immigrant parents, Carl and Mattie (Berg) Groseth. She was a first generation American. She was very proud of this fact.
Ruby attended school in Trenton and Williston, and at the age of 21 moved to Poplar, Mont., where she married William Hagadone on July 3, 1937. To this union of 42 years, 10 children were born, whom they raised on the family farm south of Poplar.
Ruby was a gracious hostess who always had the coffee perked and a plate of cookies ready to greet family and friends as soon as they entered her home. But Ruby's greatest pleasure - other than family and friends - was her flower and vegetable garden. She had a magical green thumb and could make any plant flower and any vegetable over-produce. Ruby was a member of St. John's Lutheran Church for over 60 years, and a member of the Poplar Wild Rose Club and the 55+ Club.
Ruby Hagadone is survived by eight children, Sharon (Larry) Collins of Broadus, Mont., Donald (Jackie) Hagadone of Poplar, Mary Lou (Jimmy) Simons of Poplar, James (Peggy) Hagadone of Plevna, Mont., Linda (Bill) Kohl of Missoula, Mont., Leanne (Steve) Matejovsky of Orting, Wash., Allen (Joan) Hagadone of Townsend, Mont., and Dwayne (Lydania) Hagadone of Poplar; 19 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; and three great-great grandchildren.
Also surviving are sisters Hazel Jacobson and Ion Olson both of Williston, sister-in-law Nora Hagadone of Wolf Point, Mont., and numerous nieces and nephews. Ruby was preceded in death by her husband Bill; daughters Joyce Marie Hagadone, and Elaine Hagadone Cain; sister Esther Jacobson; brother Miles Groseth; and parents Carl and Mattie Groseth.
Funeral services at the St. John's Lutheran Church in Poplar. Interment will be at the Greenwood Cemetery in Wolf Point.
