Ruby Westmoreland Crawley, 85, of Burlington passed away peacefully at her home on April 6, 2021 following an extended illness.

Ruby ran the store on Church Street for 19 years, known by the locals as “Ruby’s Store”. Everyone knew Ruby would be there early to help the folks going to work early. As any good mom would say – you need to eat before working all day. She loved to play golf, read books and in her later years, loved to watch the birds.

The family will receive friends on Friday evening, April 9, 2021 from 6:00 until 8:00 p.m. at Loflin Funeral Home of Liberty. A graveside funeral service will be held on Saturday, April 10, 2021 at 11:00 a.m. at Dr. Clyde M. Gilmore Memorial Park in Julian.

She was the daughter of the late Raymond and Fannie Duncan Westmoreland and was also preceded in death by her daughter, Scarlett Elliott; sisters, Ola Westmoreland Black and Claudette Westmoreland Lankford; brothers, Simon Odell “Pete” Westmoreland and Cecil David Westmoreland.

Surviving are her children, Susan Williamson, Jon Hinshaw, Darrell Hinshaw, Jennifer “Sam” Hinshaw; sisters, Patty Westmoreland Hinshaw and Nancy Westmoreland Newby; brother, Frank Westmoreland; six grandchildren; 11 great-grandchildren; and two great-great-grandchildren.

Ruby’s home was on my rural mail route. If her car was there I would blow the horn and she would come out just to say Hi. If not, I would see her at her store, which was also on my route. I was always tired, cold and and hungry by then. If she wasn’t busy, we talked, sometimes about “Sam”and how proud she was that you were a caddy for a professional golfer. She and I both played golf, so we talked golf.
I left Ruby’s refreshed and was able to finish my route. It was long, 64 miles, 10 or 12 hr days sometimes around the holidays.

Rest In Peace Ruby. You deserve it!
