We’ve received word that artist Ruby Wang passed away in her home in Torrance, Calif., on Wednesday, April 18, 2018, after more than two years of medical treatment for pancreatic cancer.
The traditional Chinese watercolorist formerly lived and taught in Broome County.
There will be a memorial service at the South Coast Botanic Garden in Palos Verdes Peninsula, Calif., on Saturday, July 14. In lieu of flowers or gifts of condolences, contributions are welcome as a benefit to Ruby’s church in Torrance, South Bay Chinese Christian Church (c/o Bertram Wang | 21618 Bernice Ave. | Torrance, CA | 90503).
