(March 13, 1938 - February 17, 2024)


Ruby Delores Lamprecht of Camrose, Alberta, passed away on Saturday, February 17, 2024 at the age of 85 years.


Ruby Delores Sass was born on March 13, 1938 in Edmonton, Alberta.  The first years of her life were spent on the farm at Onoway.  When Ruby was nine their family moved to the Highlands area of Edmonton.  She graduated from Eastglen Composite High and then entered the Faculty of Pharmacy at the University of Alberta.  She graduated in 1960 and worked as a pharmacist for the next 40 years in Edmonton, Wetaskiwin and Camrose.

Ruby met Enos Lamprecht at Sylvan Lake Bible Camp.  They were married on June 10, 1961 and eventually moved to the farm near Camrose, so she became a “farm-assist” as well.  Ruby & Enos had two daughters Cathryn and Karmyn.

Ruby was always an active member of Century Meadows Baptist Church.  She served as the social convener, a deaconess and was part of the Mission Circle.  She was also involved in the Helping Hand Club which was made up of women from the East Bittern Lake District (aka neighbors).  In her “free time” she spent countless hours:  mowing grass, keeping up the flower beds and hosting guests on a regular basis.

Ruby passed away on February 17, 2024 at the Louise Jensen Care Centre in Camrose.

Ruby is survived by her husband Enos, daughters: Cathryn Korchinski & Karmyn (Doug) Johnson, grandchildren:  Matthew, Braeden (Tenaya), Katelynn (Jared), Luke (Hannah Mae), Ben, Beth & Jack, and in-laws: Lil Strangway & Gordie Pollon.
