Ruby 'Cong' Carter

Published 8-29-13

ENID, Okla. — Ruby “Cong” Carter was taken by her Savior to her eternal home on Saturday, Aug. 24, 2013.

She was born on a farm southwest of Okeene, Okla., on Oct. 3, 1922, to Sarah Karbs Heffel and Carl Heffel.

She married Albert Henry Carter on Jan. 3, 1941, in Perry, Okla. Ruby served the community of Waukomis, Okla., as assistant post master for 30 years.

She was lovingly called “Cong” by her grandchildren and soon took on that same name to most of her friends in Waukomis. In Feb. 1996, Ruby moved to Lubbock, Texas, to be near her family. Ruby quickly made friends and joined the New Neighbors Club, and because Ruby loved cards, she joined the canasta and pinochle clubs.  

Ruby was preceded in death by her husband, Al; her parents; four brothers and a sister.

She is survived by a son, Jimmie D. Carter and wife, Susie of St. Joseph, Mo; a daughter, Pat Carter Camp and husband, John III of Lubbock, Texas; stepdaughter, Betty Bagshaw of Canby, Oregon, and Barbara Baker and husband, Bill of Enid, Okla.; a brother, Cletice Heffel and wife, June of Tucson, Arizona. She also leaves 12 grandchildren and numerous great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren, along with a host of friends.

Family and friends will gather for viewing from 6-7 p.m. today, Aug. 29, 2013, at Ladusau-Evans Funeral Home. Graveside service will be at 11 a.m. Friday, Aug. 30, 2013, in the Homestead Cemetery, Homestead, Okla.
