Name of creator
Ruby Margaret (McBain) Hood (1907-1994) was a teacher and active volunteer in the Imperial Order Daughters of the Empire in Carberry, Manitoba. Hood was born to Agnes (Cromie) McBain and William McBain in Keyes, Manitoba, and had a step-siblings Beth and Alec Orr. Hood died in Carberry. She married Robert James Hood in 1938, and they had children Patricia and Gary. She lived in the McQuoin District, Manitoba as a child, later moving to teach in Justice, Austin, and finally Carberry. Hood was a charter member of the Sharon Chapter No. 52 of the Order of the Eastern Star. She was also active in the Canadian Girls in Training group.
Records have been presented to the Carberry Plains Archives in 1988 by the [Carberry Plains Museum] on behalf of Ruby Hood, and in 1995 by Peggy Hood of Carberry, Manitoba, at the request of Ruby Hood's immediate family.
