Merry Ruby Sanders, 85, a 65-year resident of Salinas, passed away Wednesday, September 14, 2005 after a sudden illness.
Merry was born February 7, 1920 in Joplin, Missouri. She retired from the Salinas Californian after more than 10 years.
Merry expressed her joy of life through her talent for painting, by sharing her home with her pets: dogs, cats, birds and any stray that came into her vision-and by laughing with her husband, children and grandchildren, always teasing about the circumstances of family life.
Former member of the Fine Arts Club
