December 7, 1928 ~ February 19, 2020 (age 91)


Ruby A. Anderson, 91, of Grand Marais died Wednesday, February 19, 2020 at North Shore Living Care Center.

She was born December 7, 1928 to Adolph and Mabel Salthammer in Hastings, North Dakota, where she grew up and attended schools. She moved to Grand Marais with her husband and family in 1957. Ruby worked several jobs during her lifetime and retired in 1993 after 25 years at Cook County North Shore Hospital in the dietary department.

Ruby was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary. She had a very positive outlook on life and never lost her energy, humor, quick wit, and love of life. She enjoyed the outdoors, and her beautiful flowers, Twins baseball, music, mini vacations with her family, and participating in the MGD Club. “Let the good times roll.”

Ruby is survived by her children, Yvonne (Steve) Benson of Grand Marais, Sharon (Bob) Carlson of Sun City AZ, Linda (Brian) Walker of Princeton, and Roger (Kathy) Person of Ham Lake; eight grandchildren and ten great-grandchildren.

Her family extends a very special thank you to the wonderful and caring staff at North Shore Living Care Center.
