Ruby Marie Valadez, born on September 26, 1945, in Sanger, California, was an extraordinary blend of creativity, love, and thoughtfulness. She dearly loved her family and friends and spent her life caring for them. She enjoyed cooking, entertaining and spending as much time as possible with her family. They were her life! Ruby lived in a beautiful home on a horse ranch which was one of her great dreams in life. Ruby Marie departed on her final journey on August 11, 2023, leaving behind a world that was profoundly touched by her radiant spirit.\n\nRuby Marie was a woman of many talents and passions. As a dedicated receptionist in the software industry, she brought an unwavering commitment to her work, where her thoughtfulness shone through in her interactions with colleagues and clients alike. She was an active member of the Thousand Trails, Christian Motorcycle Association, Jenks & Sapulpa art classes, and Pateian Guard Riders. Her love for animals was evident in her fondness for feeding horses, her favorite being Annie Girl. In her retirement, Ruby Marie found immense joy in traveling in her RV, exploring the world's beauty and embracing new experiences. Her cheerleading for HHHR reflected her vibrant and spirited personality. True to her creative nature, Ruby Marie also painted, her artworks reflecting the depth of her soul and the beauty she saw in the world. As Albert Einstein once said, "Creativity is intelligence having fun." Ruby Marie's creativity was indeed her intellect's joyful dance.\n\nRuby Marie is survived by her loving husband, Alberto Valadez; daughters, Tonja Frazier and husband, Steve of Sapulpa, OK and Anesia Smith and husband, JE of Painter, VA; sons, Bruce Peterson and wife, Alaina of Sapulpa, OK and Jeff Tetmeyer and wife, Von of Pilot Point, TX; 14 grandchildren and 6 great grandchildren; brothers, Loyd Wood of Crowder, OK, Clyde Wood of California and sister, Jessie Crowder of Fresno, CA.\n\nHer parents, Robert and Mary Wood, preceded her in death as well as her husband of 32 years, Jerry Tetmeyer.
