Ruby Lynn Kivett was born Aug 23, 1897 near Hopkins, Mo and died Apr 19, 1959. Buried Hopkins Cemetery. Parents George Kivett and Mary C. Slaughter. It is marked that she was divorced which probably explains why Ross is not buried with the family. You can look at this death record on the Missouri Archives
