Obituary for Ruby Jean Rod

Ruby Jean Rod, 89, was born the second of three children to Arthur E. and Ella (Vackar) Priesmeyer on December 12, 1927 in El Campo, Texas. Ruby Jean was a loving wife to Andrew Rod for 66 years, and to this union 9 children were born. She was called home to be with our Lord on June 12, 2017.

Ruby Jean was a graduate of El Campo High School. She furthered her education by attending and receiving certification from Gulf Coast Business School, and before she married was employed by First National Bank in Houston, and Brown & Root. After marrying Andrew in 1950, Ruby Jean continued her bookkeeping skills when they owned the Pierce Grocery Store in Pierce, Texas, and Rod Farms in their farming business, and Beefmaster cattle breeding.

Ruby Jean was a Wharton County 4-H leader for the Pierce 4-H Club for more than 30 years. She was an excellent seamstress, designed the majority of her own clothing, and shared her love of the skill with her daughters and daughter-in-laws. Ruby Jean also taught countless 4-Her’s how to sew, cook, and craft, along with guiding them in their own individual interests. She would later design square dance dresses for herself when she and Andrew began square dancing. They were members of El Campo Cotton Squares from 1987 until 2014. Ruby Jean also had a love for polka, waltzing and country and western dancing while she was growing up and throughout her marriage to Andrew. She also loved swimming, golfing, and fishing.

One of Ruby Jean’s most admired virtues was her “extraordinary energy.” The lady exemplified the quality of hard work, approaching everything she did with vibrance, the end result being perfection. However, she put just as much energy into planning fun events and trips with Andrew, her children, and her friends.

Anyone who knew Ruby Jean heard of her love for Dollie, her German Shepherd, and her miniature donkeys that she and Andrew bred and raised. She also had a passion for deer hunting and did so until the winter of 2016 at the age of 89. Ruby Jean loved the outdoors and was happiest in her flower or vegetable gardens. She enjoyed baking kolaches and cream cheese rolls, canning, and was an amazing cook. Ruby Jean enjoyed putting together puzzles with her family. However, none of these interests surpassed the pride and love she had for her 30 grandchildren and 28 great-grandchildren.

Ruby Jean was preceded in death by her parents and her younger brother Clarence Priesmeyer. She is survived by her husband, Andrew, her brother and sister-in-law, Arthur A. and Grace Priesmeyer, her sister-in-law, Bettie Konvicka all of El Campo, her children and their spouses, Glen and Kathy Rod, Wanda and Anthony Dorotik, Janel and Mark English all of El Campo, Audrey and William Carl Hansen of Palacios, Stanley and Dobie Rod of El Campo, Barbara and Grant Dickey of Huntsville, Jeanne and Jack Bueltel of Rockport, Lois and Curtis Dickey of Caddo Mills, and Vanessa Rod of El Campo. Ruby Jean also loved dearly her honorary daughter, Nancy Jean Taylor Matteson of Bellaire.

Ruby Jean is also survived by her grandchildren, Shannon Jedlicka, Andrea Worthing, Melissa Lukefahr, Emily Kubicek, Craig Dorotik, Jeanine Stehling, Curtis Dorotik, Chad Dorotik, Percy English, Casey Shelley, Hailey Mica, Stephanie Hansen, Kristina Hansen, William Hansen Jr., Cullen Pickett, Andrew Ben Rod, Lauren Rod, Madeline Rod, Ella Rod, Bay Dickey, Wyatt Dickey, Dean Dickey, John David Bueltel, Gale Bueltel, Hannah Bueltel, Kristen Dickey, Kody Burns, Brooke Cornett, Courtney Dickey and Trace Dickey. She is also survived by all of her great-grandchildren.

Visitation will begin on Thursday, June 15, 2017 from 5:30 to 7:00PM at St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church. A Rosary will follow at 7:00PM. Funeral Services will be on Friday, June 16, 2017 at 10:00AM at St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church with Rev. Michael Rother officiating. Burial will follow at Holy Cross Memorial Park.

Pallbearers will be her 12 grandsons. Honorary pallbearers are J.J. Hill, Elmer Rod, Arthur Priesmeyer, and Franklin Zaruba.

It has come to our attention that classmate Mark August has ongoing cancer related health issues. 

Prayers & thoughts to Mark as he battles these issues.

Correspondence may be sent to Mark at 642 Ogden Ave, Hinesville, GA.  31313.
