Steve and Martha Beshears

Aunt Ruby was always the same friendly upbeat and happy person every time we saw her. She means a lot to our family. She was proud of her Shoun and Beshears family in a non boastful way. We always felt welcome in her house growing up because she didn't care how rich or poor we were. LOVE YOU ALWAYS AUNT RUBY. Steve and Martha Beshears and family

I will never forget Mrs. Beshears or Aren- I won't list all the things he did for me, but he went out of his way to help whoever needed it- once was when my sister was stranded in Virginia and he went up there when it was almost dark to fix her car and get her to Winston-Salem. I know Gina as well- a truly outstanding and bright daughter of the Beshears. Gina, I hope you are doing well- I am truly sorry for your loss.

My sympathy to Ruby's family. I have been privileged to know her here at Heritage Woods.

We knew Ruby and her sister, Lola, from West Side Baptist Church. At that time, I was a widow and all of us widows sat together in the same area there at the church. She was always so friendly. We shared the same July 14 birthday, different year, and we always laughed about it when we saw each other. We were birthday buddies. We last saw her at Heritage Woods and she showed me to her apartment. She was so proud of her apartment there. Will miss her. Our thoughts and prayers go out to the family.
