Obituary of Ruby Gail Pineo

Please share a memory of Ruby to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

With sadness, we acknowledge the passing of Ruby Gail Pineo, of Dartmouth, on February 4, 2023, in the Veteran’s Memorial Hospital in Halifax. Born in Berwick on August 11, 1947, she was the daughter of the late William and Phyllis (Joudrey) Murphy.

Ruby worked with the DND at CFB Greenwood as a kitchen labourer for many years. Ruby will be remembered as a good mom, and a vibrant and social person with a strong independent streak.  

Ruby is survived by her three children, Kenny, Teena, and Darrell; grandchildren, Martin (Caet) and Joey (Aislynn); sisters, Margaret, Judy, and Rosemary; and numerous other siblings, family, and friends. 


In addition to her parents, Ruby was predeceased by her husband, Sheldon Pineo; sister, Jenny; and beloved cats, Baby and Psycho. 


Special thanks to the staff on the 3rd floor at Veterans Memorial for your care during the last year.  


“There is a right time for everything, and everything on earth will happen at the right time.”
