I remember the times Aunt Rubby would do my hair and would try and teach me the piano. While I couldn't get it all I am able to play the 5 keys she showed me. Many weekends I stayed and the good cooking. Aunt Rubby helped mold me into the woman I am today. The love she shared was beautiful, also I remember sitting on the front looking at movies from the drive through. Aunt Rubby you'll always be a part of my heart. Love you always 💞

To the Family: Sons, daughters-in-law, grandchildren, & great grand
My family and I were saddened when we learned of Ruby's departure from this earth. We were college roommates at PVAMU our freshman year. She always shared her good home cooked food that her Mom had prepared in a big box for her to bring back to college after a weekend at home in Bartlett-Granger. Later, she and my sister, Velna Derry Barnhardt, taught together in the LaPorte ISD. In fact, she wrote a lovely tribute that she sent for me to read at my sister's funeral in January 2017! Had no idea that she was sick. She will be missed! She was definitely a believer and one of God's special children. May God give you the strength to cope with your great loss. It is comforting to know where her soul rests. Praying for God's comfort and peace for the family. Isaiah 66:13

To Carl and Danny:
My love goes out to you and your families. May God comfort you continuously as you cope with your great loss. Your Mother was an amazing woman. And Ruby raised some amazing sons. As I reflected on her homegoing celebration, seemingly, "unity" was a strong focal point with her for the church and family. Hopefully, these ties will be strengthened through memories of her.
I will forever remember how she entrusted me to sit with her babies when I was a mere teenager. Keep in touch.
Love your Cousin

I remember, when I first moved to Laporte with my husband and I first met my Aunt Ruby and Uncle T-Buster. Prior to that meeting, I had only talk to her over the phone. She along with my mother-in-law became my Texas family. I remember I knew nothing about plants, but Aunt Ruby took me under her guidance. She would tell me what plants were what; and she would always tell me how to care for them. She even gave me some plants that I have right now on my front porch that came from her yard. She had such great hospitality. She would never let us leave unless we have eaten something. She shared with me hurts, disappointments and betrayals; and I did the same with her. To some she might have seem standoffish, but she had a sincere soft spot that only those close knew. She became my surrogate Mom/Aunt. When I was sick she came and helped me. She brought me juice, soup, and love. When we were moving to Georgia, she came and helped me organize, clean and pack up our house. When my Mother-law was dying (they were like Sisters) she was with me when we got the dreaded news and we cried together. She was a very private woman, but I respected that. When I left Laporte, I still texted her at least a couple times a month, she never let on how sick she really was. Yet, now, I understand...she was strong, independent, and so, so, private.
In John 11:24, Martha states: "I know he will rise in the resurrection on the last day." Jesus then states at John 11:25: "I am the resurrection and the life. The one who exercise faith in me, even though he dies, will come to life ." This is my hope that when the resurrection occur, I get to see Auntie's smile again.

Ruby was very dear to me. She taught my daughter and was responsible for Pam, my daughter, to have a successful beginning in education and also a successful future career in Education.
I enjoyed visiting with Ruby at our Retired Teacher Meeting. We seemed to always compare the floral arrangements we prepared for our husband's grave sites and the best stores to buy these flowers. She is now with our precious Lord and her beloved husband.

To her family, I pray for you and hope you are able to remember the many blessings she brought to so many students she taught.

Thoughts and Prayer, Kylene Barnes
