April 30, 1919 - September 14, 2013
I selected this picture of my mother, Camilla Pruitt Rubin, taken by my father, Victor Rubin, when they were both young, very much in love, with their entire lives ahead of them. this is how I remember my mother and hope others do also.
My mother was a rarity for her times, an educated professional woman. Camilla followed the footsteps of her own mother, Rosabelle Pruitt, and had a long career as a school teacher. She taught second grade in Lone Grove, Oklahoma for nine years before coming to Texas. She then taught first grade at Casa View, a D.I.S.D. school for 29 years. She provided a quality education for each student and was often remembered fondly by past students.
In her retirement, Camilla’s greatest joy was her three grandsons, Patrick Cary Murray, Andrew Reuben Murray and Timothy John Murray. She was much loved and will be greatly missed. I also want to thank her twin nephews, Clinton Risner and Thomas Risner, both of whom were a great comfort and support for Camilla, especially in her declining years.
She is survived by her loving daughter Marsh Rubin Murray, Three grandsons, and numerous nieces and nephews.
