Ruby was one who loved children and made a career in childcare as well as waitressing. Ruby enjoyed camping, fishing and crabbing with her husband, and when she wasn’t on an adventure with him, she enjoyed adventures through reading books.

The family will receive friends on Monday, February 13, 2023, from 6:00 pm until 7:30 pm at Garrett-Sykes Memorial Chapel, Murfreesboro, NC, and other times at the home.
