Rubye T. Stultz

June 28, 1940May 15, 2020

CHAPIN – Rubye Till Stultz, devoted wife of the late Robert Lee Stultz, went to be with the Lord on May 15, 2020. Rubye was born in Asheville, North Carolina on June 28, 1940 to the late Minnie Carolyn Dowling Till and John Fredrick Till. Rubye loved her job as a rural mail carrier with the U.S. Postal Service, where she worked with her sister, Virginia Alexander. She enjoyed meeting and talking with the many people along her mail routes and stayed close with her fellow mail carriers long after her retirement in 2014. Rubye was also a devoted member of Clear Water Branch Baptist Church, where her longtime friend, Mike Catoe is the pastor.

She is survived by her three children, Cindy (Randall) Price of Murfreesboro, TN, Larry Stultz of Aiken, SC, and Heather (Tyler) Tucker of Chapin, SC; six grandchildren, Kris Rook, Devin Ferguson, Paige (Josh) Box, Jack, Will and Lee Tucker; and three great grandchildren, Ryan Rook, Adley and Jay Box.

She is also survived by her four siblings, Virginia Alexander, Jay (Peggy) Till, Ebby (Jack) Creden, and Buist Till.

Rubye had many wonderful friends who loved her vibrant personality and love of cooking. It was always said that when Rubye cooked she could feed an army and, despite a small dining room, her house was always filled with love, people and food. Rubye was the embodiment of a true friend and would do anything for anyone. She loved with all her heart and will be missed by so many.

Her family would like to extend a special thank you to the wonderful staff of the Lowman Home in Chapin, SC, for their abundance of care and love that they showed Rubye during her final days, especially when her family could not be with her due to COVID-19.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to the Lutheran Homes of South Carolina Foundation.

I worked with Ruby at post office over 20 years. She was always willing to help her fellow carriers in any way she could. She will surely be missed by all who knew her.

Rubye was a very loving and kind mother of our precious daughter in law. I always enjoyed seeing her at our family gatherings because she has a unique ability to welcome you with a smile and a hug. You always felt loved around her. She will be missed on this earth by so many that loved her. Heaven is rejoicing at her arrival. That brings us all peace and comfort.

I knew Rubye because of her precious daughter, Heather. It was always a family gathering that I had the pleasure of meeting this sweet lady. The thing I loved the most about Rubye was the way she loved all of her family. Rubye was an easy person to be around. She had a special way of making you feel welcome that always made me feel good. I never saw her that I didn’t get a hug! She will always hold a dear place in our hearts for the lovely daughter -in-law that she gave us.

I did not get to know Mrs. Rubye, but her daughter, Heather, is an amazing legacy for her to leave on THIS side of eternity. A great example of grace.

Rubye was a very special friend that will truly be missed. She always made me feel so special and a part of the family when Heather and Tyler met. I loved tag teaming with her whether babysitting or the boys birthday parties. Rubye, I can’t wait for you to meet Peggy. You both will have many stories to share, I’m sure. We will all miss you so much, but please know I’ll keep a watchful eye out and an open lap for these precious boys. I love you Rubye Meme. Granny Beth
