Ruby Viola Bartikowsky was born Friday, April 23, 1920 at Redfield, South Dakota to Harry H. and Bertha (Orth) Beard. Ruby was united in marriage to Emil Bartikowsky on June 20, 1936 at Yankton. They farmed north of Tyndall for many years. They moved into Tyndall and Ruby did painting, cleaning, and worked at the Corner Bar. Always good with her hands, Ruby was handy at fixing things, made beautiful crepe paper rose bouquets for Memorial Day, did wallpapering, gave haircuts and permanents, and sewed and crocheted. Her enjoyments in life included reading and music, and she was self-taught on the piano, organ and accordion. She became a resident of the Tyndall Good Samaritan Center in 2007. She passed away on Thursday, September 15, 2011, having attained the age of 91 years, 4 months, and 23 days.
Grateful for sharing Ruby’s life are her children: a son, Ron (Norma) Bartikowsky of Yankton; five daughters: Arline (Robert) Sedlacek of Tyndall, Ruth Langley of Tyndall, Rita Bourret of Tyndall, Carol Reining of Denver, Colorado and Dorothy (John) Honomichl of Yankton; 15 grandchildren and 23 great-grandchildren; one brother, Norman Frank of Tucson, Arizona; and three sisters: Mildred Branaugh of Yankton, Eleanor Schuur of Sioux City, Iowa and Irene Nohava of Huron.
In addition to her parents, Ruby was preceded in death by her husband, Emil, three brothers, a grandson, and four great-grandchildren.
