She was a member of Calvary Baptist Church. Ruby was a wonderful wife, mother and grandmother who loved her family dearly and had a servant’s heart. Her church family was especially important to her, and she enjoyed attending gospel singings. She looked forward to shopping trips because she was a people person and could strike up a conversation with anyone she met.
