Ruby J. Stadick was born November 20, 1928, to Theodore and Odilla (Sackman) Kundert in Underwood, North Dakota. She attended country school her first four grades when she then moved to Turtle Lake, North Dakota with her parents, where she graduated from Turtle Lake High School in 1946.
Ruby married Donald K. Stadick from Underwood, North Dakota on June 27, 1946. They lived in Turtle Lake for a few years and then moved to the family farm in rural Underwood where they farmed and ranched. They farmed together until Donald’s death in 1987.
Ruby was a lifetime member of the VFW auxiliary in Underwood, North Dakota beginning in 1949. She held many different positions and offices in the club. She was the secretary/treasurer of the Gateway Commons Association; and she also was the secretary/treasurer of the condominium complex where she resided. She enjoyed working for six sessions in the ND Legislature as a House Page, Chief Page in the Senate and House Bill Clerk. She also worked at the Underwood Prairie View Nursing Home. Ruby enjoyed playing pinochle and entered many pinochle tournaments with her “card-loving friends” but she really enjoyed watching her family play in several of their sporting and musical events. Family was definitely very important to her.
Ruby sold the family farm and moved to Bismarck in 1990 and in 1995 she purchased her condominium which she thoroughly enjoyed.
