If you knew Ruby, you knew that she was one of a kind. She was the one person in our family who knew each person by name and prayed for them daily. My grandma’s love was her family, yet I believe her greatest love was Jesus Christ. Grandma Ruby will always be carried in our hearts, her strength and faith we will walk with for the rest of ours. We are sad for our loss, yet we rejoice for her gain of eternal life with her heavenly Father.

My Aunt Ruby was an inspiration to everyone around her, especially to her brother Burrells children. She was a wonderful prayer warrior and we all thank her for that! Her loving smile and gracious manner will never be forgotten.

It’s hard to put into words how my Aunt Ruby has touched our lives. Love, prayer, a smile that melted your heart. She is what I would call a giver. She never ask for anything in return. Her faith was stronger then anyone’s I’ve ever known. When she said a prayer it was like being in the good Lords inter circle. She will be missed but never forgotten. She lived for the day she would meet her Lord, I know now she is happier then she has ever been. Rest in Peace Aunt Ruby.

Aunt Ruby was my great Aunt. She meant a lot to our family. I remember me and mom visiting her at her church camp, and going on a trip to Arizona with her. We loved her and she had a big impact on my life as well as I know the rest of my family. Will miss you Aunt Ruby and God Bless her and the whole family. She was a blessing.

We only ever really met her once, but once was enough to see that this woman was just wonderful. As everyone had told us, she truly was a giver. She inspired us in many different ways. It was truly a joy and blessing to be able to meet her, to hear her stories, and to have seen her smile. May she be happy and may the Lord take care of her.

My Precious Grandma, I will miss you so much. But, I weep with joy when I think that you have finally met Jesus face to face – an event you have looked forward to for many years. The legacy you have left for us is how important prayer is. Each day you prayed for every member of your family by name. God answered your prayers. Just know that many of us will continue those prayers until we, too, will join you in celebrating a life with no more sickness, no more pain, and no more sadness. How comforting to know we will get to spend eternity together and never be apart again. I love you. Until we meet again, your granddaughter, Judy
