BROWNVILLE - Ruby J. (Ladd) Thibodeau, 85, wife of the late George H. Thibodeau, passed away on Sept. 18, 2003, at a Dover-Foxcroft nursing facility after a long period of declining health. She was born June 22, 1918, at Barnard, the daughter of the late Josephine and Harry Ladd. Ruby was a graduate of Brownville High School, Class of 1937, and of the Paine Hospital School of Nursing in Bangor, now known as St. Joseph Hospital. She was a member of the Brownville Community Church, the Milo Nurses Guild, the D.U.V. of Milo and of Echo Chapter No. 98, OES of Brownville. Nursing was her passion in life and she had assisted in the births of babies too numerous to count. Although she had had no children of her own, her "family" was her close 10 nephews and one niece. Ruby is survived by her twin brother, Russell Ladd and his wife, Ruth, of Brownville; her nephews, Bryce, Dayle, Darrell and Joel Rollins; Gary, Dwight, Steven and Brian Ladd; and one niece, Joanne (Ladd) Sokolowski.

George Ganglfinger officiating. In lieu of flowers, those who wish may make memorial contributions to the Milo Nurses Guild, care of Beverly Hamlin, Treas., 351 Medford Road, Milo, ME 04463.
