She was born on July 1, 1916 in Annapolis, Missouri to Robert and Julie (Hughes) Mann who preceded her in death along with two brothers and three sisters; Addie O'Kelley, Everett Mann, Grace Lewis, Carl Mann and Ruth Grigery. On August 27, 1934 she was united in marriage to Clyde William Funk who preceded her in death on May 19, 1985.

Ruby was a homemaker, raising three children and kept busy keeping a clean and tidy home while her husband, Clyde traveled many miles driving a tractor and trailer to support his family. She was self-taught in many crafts as crocheting for her family and alterations for many other individuals. Ruby was well known among her grandchildren and others as the sock monkey lady. She has more than likely made a troop of monkeys. Another talent she possessed was her beautiful crocheted rugs made from narrow strips of colorful fabrics. She had a witty sense of humor and always had a little song or jingle to entertain you. Ruby accepted our Lord as her savior in 1961 and was a charter member of Free Spirit General Baptist Church at Vulcan making many friends and unforgettable memories. Memorials may be made to Safe Harbor Hospice, The Baptist Home or Free Spirit General Baptist Church.
