SOMETIME HALO RESIDENT DIES
NEWSPAPER OF THE FICTIONAL TOWN OF HALO, OREGON
Ruby Solomon, sometime Halo resident, recently died quietly in her sleep. Ruby was the biological mother of Marly O'Shea, one of the locally famous adopted O'Shea siblings. Ruby's identity as Marly's mother became public several months ago, just before the town of Halo was nearly destroyed by dynamite explosions.
The revelation could have been as emotionally devastating as was the physical devastation of Halo by dynamite. However, Ruby was determined to set things right and, in her last months in Halo, forged bonds of friendship that will be treasured for many years to come.
Ruby traveled extensively and, in her earlier years, was a promising singer.
In addition to her husband, Pierce Stratford, daughter Marly and close friend Tallie O'Shea were with Ruby when she passed over. A simple ceremony to honor Ruby was planned by her family and close friends.
