Verna Mae Ruebhausen, 90, of Granite City, Illinois passed away at 6:25 a.m. on Monday, February 15, 2021, at Cedarhurst of Granite City.

Verna was a member of Nameoki United Methodist Church in Granite City. She was an avid fan of the St. Louis Cardinals baseball and enjoyed attending S.O.A.R. gatherings and the H.O.P.E. luncheons. Verna and Dean were members of the Granite City Elk’s Lodge for many years and made wonderful memories with their friends and fellow members. Verna loved to read and worked for nearly a decade at the Granite City Public Library. Dogs, babies, Elvis, and ice cream could always put a smile on Verna’s face.
