RUBY COLENA SOUTHER Age 89, of Honolulu, HI died at her home in Honolulu on February 8, 2015. Ruby was a resident of Honolulu since 1958 when she fell in love with the island. Ruby Colena Terrel was born at Orlando, OK, on February 25, 1925. Graduating in the Class of 1943 at Prosser, WA, she later attended the Univ of HI.
