Ruby Scarce (nee Ausonio)
Feb. 12, 1927 — Oct. 19, 2014
Ruby Scarce (nee Ausonio) of Waukesha was born Feb. 12, 1927, in Lannon, and entered into eternal life on October 19, 2014.
For 30 years, Ruby, with her loving husband Dave, served their customers and friends at Dave and Ruby's Rocky Knoll Tavern. But more important were the 87 years she spent here on earth serving the Lord. She was a mainstay at St. John Neumann Catholic Church, where she will be greatly missed. When her friends and neighbors asked “Grandma Ruby” what she had done that day, she would reply, “I prayed.”
Of course Grandma Ruby would also set aside enough time to tune into the “Lawrence Welk Show” and loved playing bingo.
She was the beloved wife of 46 years to the late David Sr. She is survived by her sons, David Jr. (Mary) and Richard (Danielle), and grandchildren Bernadette (Rob) Sharpe, Bryan (Jackie), Joshua, Heather (Dennis), Angela (Scott) Johnson, Nathan (Rachel) and Nicole (Jacob) Grooms. Ruby will also be loved and missed by her sister Mary Tures, 16 great-grandchildren, nieces, nephews, other relatives and friends.
She was also preceded in death by her parents, Dominick and Virginia Ausonio, and her siblings Justine, Marcelline “Chink” and Rosemary.
Visitation will be held on Friday, Oct. 24, from 5 PM to 8 PM at Church and Chapel Funeral Home, 380 Bluemound Road (at highways J and JJ, four blocks south of Interstate 94), Waukesha. Visitation will also be held on Saturday, Oct. 25, from 9:30 AM to 10:45 AM at St. John Neumann Catholic Church, 2400 State Highway 59, Waukesha. A Mass of Christian Burial will follow at 11:00 AM. Interment will be at St. Joseph’s Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, memorials in Ruby’s name may be made to St. John Neumann’s Church.
