As Aunt Lou's only niece this obits short of a few important details! She was raised by my Grandfather George C. Sproles who loved and supported her as his own,he gave her the money to complete her dream to be a nurse!
She loved all three of her brother's Charles Hawley,Richard Sproles and my father George C. Sproles,whom she nursed during his illness in 2001.
My Aunt Lou was a great neighbor she exchanged meals with her friends on Marshall St. and in return they helped her during these last few years! I would like to thank everyone who helped her remain at home these last few years!
For anyone knew her well,she disliked the name Ruby!
Thank you,Aunt Lou for all the love! Love "from your Baby's Baby!.
