Ruby Sercerchi
Our grandmother Ruby Sercerchi (née, Ruby Graham) grew up in rural New Brunswick. She was a dedicated mother, sister, wife and grandmother. She loved to knit, bake (homemade doughnuts were a specialty), admire her roses, and be with her family.

She taught herself to knit left-handed at one point, in order to be able to pass along the tradition and teach her second-youngest granddaughter to knit. Ruby knit this pink sweater set for her youngest grandchild, not long before she was diagnosed with ALS and had to give up knitting altogether. The piece now belongs to her great-granddaughter. Her knitting, but especially her love and laughter are greatly missed.
