Ruby Nicholson & Jane Scott
“We’d do spring cleaning, and one of the exciting times in spring was when we took the stove down and took of the long underwear. ”
Ruby Wells Nicholson has led a long and full life. Born in Kentucky in 1910, Ruby survived the Great Flu Epidemic and saw the birth of the automobile. Today, Ruby and her daughter Jane Scott live in Yellow Springs. In the StoryCorps booth Ruby shared memories of rural life: the changing of the seasons, and preparations for spring.
