Thank you for being an inspiration.
From The Seattle PI
Gov. Chris Gregoire called her "the soul of Seattle" who "exemplified so much of what makes Washington great."
"She stood up for the underrepresented, especially Asian Americans, from the time she was a young woman. She was a role model for women of all backgrounds and a fierce believer in the importance of families. And she was a successful businesswoman and politician. Throughout her life, Ruby did what women do best. She built bridges, and because of that, she left our state better place for us all. We will miss Ruby, but her legacy will live on."
