Rueben was born March 21, 1930, at home in the town of Colby to Theodore and Loella (Tesmer) Frome.

He was employed for a period at Felker's 24-hour Gas Station where he did mechanical work.

On September 23, 1950, at the Lutheran Church in Nasonville, Rueben and the former Mae Ellen Baumgartner were united in holy marriage. In 1953, Rueben purchased a milk route, hauling for Clover Cream Dairy until his retirement in 1997, a period of 44 years.

Rueben was a longtime member of the Midwest Milk Haulers Association, enjoyed deer hunting, fishing, riding snowmobiles, was an avid bowler and played softball until he was 66. He also was a proficient sheepshead player in retirement.

Rueben is lovingly survived by his wife of 57 years, Mae, and children, Kathlynn (John) Andersen of Chippewa Falls, Dennis Frome of Marshfield and David (Brenda) Frome of Tomahawk. Mr. Frome is further survived by five grandchildren, Kristin and Megan Andersen, Danielle and Luke Frome and Tanya (Shad) Tenpas; five great-grandchildren, Jacob, Jade, Jared, Justin and Jonah; one sister, Janet Hardy of El Cajon, Calif., as well as many nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.

His parents and two children, John and Nancy Frome, preceded Rueben in death.
