Rockland — Ruby Evelyn Benner Rawley, 83, went to heaven Friday, June 29, 2018, with her family by her side. Born in Camden May 8, 1935, she was the daughter of Rosa Lillian Fogg and William Edward Benner. She was raised in Camden with her sisters, Annie, Florence and Lillian.

Ruby married Alfred Edward Rawley Aug. 3, 1953, in Camden.

Ruby worked at Goodwill, Walmart and Spotless Cleaners in Camden with her daughter, Linda. She always enjoyed going to lawn sales with her son, William, and especially holding her own lawn sale with her son every September on Broadway. She loved to spend time at the seashore searching for and finding sea glass, interesting shells, and old clay marbles, some of which she gave away or used to create artistic pieces. She gave to everyone; family, friends, animals and even strangers.

Predeceased by her husband, Alfred, and grandson Timothy Pinkham Jr., Ruby is survived by her daughter, Linda, and son-in-law Timothy Pinkham of Camden and her son, William W. Rawley, of Rockland.

The family would like to express their heartfelt appreciation for Ruby’s wonderful care to the staff of Sussman House, and to her physicians, Dr. Reynolds and Dr. Michalakes.

A private family service will be held at a later date.
