Ruby (Helmandollar) McCann

August 24, 1920 ~ July 8, 2017 (age 96)

Ruby (Helmandollar) McCann, age 96, passed away at the Ohio Living Dorothy Love in Sidney, Ohio July 8, 2017.  She was born August 24, 1920, to the late Gordon and Lucinda Scott Helmandollar in West Virginia.  She moved as a child with her family to Quincy, Ohio.  On December 22, 1946, she married Roy Herschel McCann who preceded her in death in 1998. 

Ruby was a graduate of Quincy High School and The Ohio State University.  She taught for many years in the Quincy and Riverside elementary school systems. She enjoyed math, but the later years teaching and tending to the second graders were her favorite.  She was a member of the Northtowne Church of God in Sidney and taught Sunday school classes for a number of years. 

After their retirement, Ruby and Herschel enjoyed traveling and camping.  Ruby also enjoyed many crafts including sewing and making doll clothes.  She loved any activity that included her grandchildren and always had cookies and other treats for them on their visits. 

Ruby was preceded in death by eight of her siblings and is survived by her sister, Mary Ruth (John Jr.) Ball along with numerous generations of nieces and nephews.  Also surviving are her daughters Patricia McCann, Sidney, Ohio, and Debra (Jerry, deceased) Cress of Laura, Ohio; Debra's children, Jennifer (Matthew) Berrey, of Waynesville, Ohio, Jacob Cress and his partner Joseph Freeman of Cincinnati, Ohio,  Elisabeth (Kyle) Courtright of Tipp City, Ohio and Alison (Katlin) Clark of Tipp City, Ohio.  Great grandchildren include Connor and Katie Berrey and Kinsley and Kip Courtright. 

The funeral service will be private and held at a time arranged by the family.  

The family appreciates the compassionate care and attention given to Ruby by the staff of Ohio Living Dorothy Love during her time spent there.

The arrangements are in the care of the staff of the Daring & Sanford Funeral Home in DeGraff, Ohio.
