    • RUBY I. "RIGGY' PASKO RETIRED UNDERWRITER
      Watertown Daily Times (NY) - January 11, 2000
      There will be no funeral or calling hours for Ruby I. "Riggy" Pasko, 79, a native of Watertown. A private graveside service will be at the family's convenience. Arrangements are with TLC Funeral Home, Watertown.

      Mrs. Pasko died Sunday at the home of her daughter, Margery A. Pasko, 3323 County Route 6, Edwardsville.

      She was an underwriter employed by New Hampshire Insurance Co., Menands, until her retirement in 1975.

      Born Sept. 24, 1920, in Watertown, daughter of Bernard and Anna Menard Quackenbush, she graduated from Sandy Creek High School and attended College of the Ozarks, Clarksville, Ark., for two years.

      During World War II, she worked building airplanes while employed by McDonnell-Douglas Corp. and had her pilot's license.

      She married Donald G. Pasko on April 24, 1943, in Riverside, Calif., with the Rev. W.W. Carterwood officiating. The couple lived in Sackets Harbor for 10 years and moved to Menands in 1960. After their retirement, they lived at Mariaville Lake. Mr. Pasko, a retired official of the state Department of Environmental Conservation, died in 1986.

      When she lived in Sackets Harbor, Mrs. Pasko was active in the Rebekah Lodge and was a civil aviation warden. In her retirement, she was a member of the Mariaville Lake Association and was a Democratic committee person for the town of Duanesburg in Schenectady County.

      Surviving besides her daughter are two sons, William J., Belton, Texas, and John G., Colonie; four brothers, Goldie Quackenbush, Wauchula, Fla., Bernard Quackenbush, Snover, Mich., Bill Quackenbush, Pulaski, and James Quackenbush, Redwood; two sisters, Cecelia Collins and Leola Hellinger, both of Pulaski; four grandchildren, and 31 nieces and nephews.
