Eleanor “Mrs. Ruby” Wroblewski, 94, of Espy Street, Hanover Section of Nanticoke passed away Saturday, December 11, 2021 surrounded by her loving family.
Born July 7, 1927 in Nanticoke, she was a daughter of the late Michael and Susan Haberchak Sokol.
Eleanor was a devout and lifelong member of St. John the Baptist Orthodox Church, Hanover Section of Nanticoke and was formerly employed by the Duplan Silk Mill and subsequently MacGregor Sportswear.
On November 20,1948, she married the love of her life and best friend, Stanley “Ruby” Wroblewski. Eleanor and Stanley shared over 60 years of happiness building a loving family together.
In 1971, Ruby had asked Eleanor if she was interested in making pizza and together they established Ruby’s Inn on Espy Street in the Hanover Section of Nanticoke. This was not just a job for Eleanor, this was how she enjoyed life. Eleanor worked beside her family and made sure every experience at Ruby’s was a good one. After the passing of her husband in 2013, Eleanor and her son James continued to work side by side and Eleanor began to engage her granddaughters in the pizza making business, this made her incredibility proud. This year Ruby’s celebrated 50 years in business.
After a hard day’s work, Mrs. Ruby looked forward to putting on her lipstick and sitting at table #10 and talking with customers, whom she considered her “Ruby’s Family”. If it was a Saturday night, you would be sure to see her watching the polkas or hear them playing in the kitchen. Her laughter and love for others was contagious.
Eleanor loved trips to Atlantic City with her husband, sisters and loving niece, Jean Barney. Her granddaughters and great-granddaughters were the center of her life.
Eleanor was preceded in death by her loving husband Stanley to whom she was married for more than 60 years. She was also preceded in death by her brothers, John (Flash) Sokol, Joseph (Jay) Sokol and Emil Sokol, and her sisters, Dorothy Wolfkiel and Irene Miszczuck.
