Drucilla, known by many as Dru was born July 31st, 1938, in Worland, Missouri. The Daughter of Waneta Marie Miles (Mikesell) and Walter W. Miles. From a very young age Dru showed her strength and perseverance by working in many jobs as a teenager, from Georges Restaurant to running her very own little restaurant.

During their life together Dru suffered the loss of 7 children born in heaven. And in December 1970 they welcomed their only Son, Frankie Ray Schubert.


For several years Dru worked at Whiteside’s I.G.A. East and In May of 1989 Drucilla graduated from Allen County Community College Adult Education program with her GED. Drucilla’s love and compassion for others was shown in her many years as Activities Director for Medicalodges of Fort Scott and Fort Scott Manor nursing homes where she brightened the days of each resident and formed many lifelong friendships.

In later years Dru worked as a People Greeter at Walmart where she always had a smile and never knew a stranger!
