During that time, she and Herschel worked together there as he was the sewing machine mechanic for the company. In their time away from work, they also raised cattle at their farm on Pittman Road. After retiring from the pants factory, Ruby Dean worked for her sister, Florene Daniel, at Daniel’s Grocery greeting and checking out customers.
