It is with profound sadness that I inform the class that Charyl Bovos Rubin passed away from Metastatic Breast Cancer on February 7, 2018.

Charyl was born in Kansas City, MO. She is a graduate of Southwest High School and Research Hospital's School of Nursing. She then continued her education receiving both her Bachelor's Degree from Baker University, Baldwin City, KS and her Master's Degree from the University of St. Francis, Joliet, IL. Her vast nursing career includes work in both private family practice and in hospital case management, having worked at the major hospitals of Kansas City. Her final 13 years of her career were spent at the University of Kansas Medical Center, prior to her retirement in 2014.

Charyl was a member of The Temple, Congregation B’nai Jehudah and most recently, she was proudly President of the Greater Kansas City Chapter of Hadassah.

She was preceded in death by her late husband, Dr. Herbert M. Rubin, her parents, Edward and Pauline (Hanick) Bovos and her brother, Bruce Bovos. Charyl is survived by her children and their spouses: Kimber Leigh Nussbaum, Chicago, IL; Jordan Nussbaum, Overland Park, KS; Bryant and Denise Rubin, Overland Park, KS; Cathy and Tracy Swalley, Overland Park, KS; Russ Rubin and Daniel Boatright, Houston, TX; grandchildren: Gavin Brivik, New York, NY; Alex Brivik, Baldwin City, KS; Elizabeth Rubin, Virginia Beach, VA; Hannah Rubin, Dallas, TX.

She was a giver in every sense of the word. A devoted, loving Mother and Grandmother who dearly loved her children, her step-children and her grandchildren as well.

Charyl enjoyed an active lifestyle, participating in various exercise classes at the Jewish Community Center. She also enjoyed Mahjongg, Canasta, piano music, traveling (recent trips to the UK and China) and rooting on her beloved Kansas City Royals, Kansas City Chiefs and University of Kansas Jayhawks.

Charyl will be greatly missed by her family and friends.

I am so sorry to hear this. Charyl lived a couple of blocks away and I knew her since elementary school. Such a sweet person. Her family had the first color TV in the neighborhood. A bunch of us kids went over to watch it. I remember it seemed everything seemed green. But we had such a good time. My condolences to her family. Only wonderful memories of Charyl.

I'm so sad to hear this. I though she was doing well with her treatments. She was a very kind and sweet person. Rest In Peace Charyl.

I was made aware of Charyl's status from Hilda--I just had a difficult time accepting it- due to the several friends I have lost in the past 15 months. We weren't that close but had a couple of get togethers in recent years.  Hilda said it all--Charyl was a giving person-putting others first.  My thoughts to Charyl's large family & friends.  Good memories to have.

This is so very sad to hear, as are all the early deaths in our class. I want to add a thought more generally: I have the impression (though it may be misguided and I hope one of our statisticians can put me straight if I'm wrong) that we, as a class, have had to date a disproportionate number of deaths before the age of 70, sometimes well before the age of 70. There are historically relevant factors in our slice of the ages. But that considered, and beyond that, am I right? Brooke

Charyl was the picture of health.  I am sad to think that she is gone.  I worked with her briefly at Children's Mercy and of course knew her from high school.  She was such a nice person.

I’m sorry to hear of Cheryl’s passing. She was a friend from the days of Marlborough elementary school.
