From Larry & Karen Puckett...

Ruby was a dear sweet lady, and she will be missed.

From Patricia Kirk...

Ruby was my dad’s little sister so she was a part of my childhood and as a teen, I lived with her while I went to high school. Of course she was a part of my adulthood as well. She was always gracious, funny, and responsible. I wanted to be like Ruby–didn’t come close. She had a magic touch in her cooking. I don’t remember a better cook. Her house was so clean a doctor could have performed surgery on her floor. She will be missed.

We are so sorry for your loss. We only met “Grandma” once at Shane and Dora’s wedding. It was so apparent how loved she was and how loving. I know you all will miss her a lot. I hope your faith will help you through this difficult time. Our prayers are with you all.
Respectfully,
