Ruby L. Hart
October 17, 1936 – April 4, 2019
Ruby touched many souls and enriched many lives in her 82 year journey through life. She was many things to many people. She was a darling daughter, a strong sibling to two brothers, a caring Christian to everyone, a wonderful wife to Eddie, a masterful mother of six, a grateful grandmother of twelve, a faithful friend to many and a stranger to none.
Ruby Lee Holt was born to Daniel and Susannah Holt on October 17, 1936 in Dallas, Texas. At the time of her birth, her parents resided in Matador, Texas, which is where her path eventually crossed with Eddie Hart's path. Eddie and Ruby fell in love and were married on July 23, 1955 in Paducah, Texas. Soon after, they built a life and started a family in Plainview, Texas, where all of their children were raised.
Ruby was a hard working woman with many talents and interests. She was a seamstress for family and friends throughout her years, making many outfits suitable for many occasions. She also make bridesmaids' dresses for weddings. In addition, she had an amazing eye for home décor, so, it was very fitting that she hosted for Home Interior for many years, retiring as a Home Interior decorator. Ruby's hobbies were spending time with family, singing, embroidery and word search puzzles.
Of all her many talents, the one that stood out the most was her heart for ministry. Ruby's parents raised her in the Church of Christ and she became a Christian at a young age. Because of her strong Christian beliefs, she always made sure that she involved in the ministry. While she lived in Plainview, she was a member of both Ash and Carver Street C of C and Garland Street C of C at different times throughout the years. When she a member of both Ash and Carver C of C Ruby helped lead the women's bible study, women's fellowship, the decorating committee, and the choir. One of the more memorable ministries that Ruby and Eddie helped lead while members of Garland Street C of C was the "Joy Bus" which was an outreach program with a goal of exposing as many children as possible to Christ. In 2011, Eddie and Ruby moved to Plainview to Arlington, Texas to be closer to their children. Once they were settled in the DFW area, they purchased a home in Grand Prairie, Texas, where they became members of Dalworth C of C, where Ruby taught the ladies bibles class, mentored teenagers and was a member of the choir for many years. One accomplishments that she was very proud of was being asked to be the Keynote speak at the women's conference at one of the Churches of Christ in Dallas, Texas, where her topic was entitled "Too Many Cooks in the Kitchen."
Ruby left a legacy of selfless service and a giving spirit for family, church family, friends and strangers alike. She was preceded in death by her parents, Daniel and Susanna Holt, her two brothers, Dan Lewis Holt and James Earl Holt and her youngest child, Michael Dewayne Hart. She is survived by her husband of 64 years, Eddie Hart of Grand Prairie, Texas; five children, Patsy Singletary of Fort Worth, Texas, Rickey Hart Sr. of Rowlett, Texas, Kathy Blanton of Irving, Texas, Eddie Dean Hart of Grand Prairie, Texas, Vanessa Kay Mobley of Grand Prairie, Texas; three sons-in-law, David Singletary, Jerry Blanton and Jimmy Mobley; two daughters-in-law, Renee Hart and Yolanda Hart, a host of grandchildren, great grandchildren, extended family and friend.
