Aunt Ruby always said, “when they bury me, I’ll be kicking up dirt!” She was so full of life and her zest for life was contagious! I always told her that she was my role model on how to stay youthful and active. I always valued the sweet little cards she sent for holidays or “just to say hi.” And she was the epitome of a graceful, welcoming hostess, setting a beautiful table that made the most simple food or drink feel like a lovely party. I will miss our special phone conversations and my visits to her lovely home and all the memories she shared of her childhood. I love you most, Aunt Ruby. Rest In Peace and I look forward to seeing you again in heaven.

If you attended the 5:00 PM Saturday Mass at St. Laurence Catholic Church in Sugar Land, Texas, you would have known Ruby Davis. She always greeted everyone in a special way and made you feel important. She was the epitome of grace, faith, and elegance. After Mass, sweet Ruby was always surrounded by friends. We will miss her greatly.

I first met Ruby ( Aunt Ruby ) and her daughter Glenda 60 years ago at her sister’s house on Wallisville Road, the home of my best friend Henry Magee, Ruby’s nephew. We have remained best friends and they all became like family members thereafter. The style , the friendliness, and warmth that her and Glenda always showed me from that point forward was nothing short of awesome. We send our condolences to the family and feel their loss, but we also feel the joy of her joining her sister in heaven. The world is a sad place for the loss of two beautiful sisters whom made life better for all that had the pleasure of knowing them , but heaven has gained two shining stars, may God Bless the family. 🙏❤️🙏

Ruby was such an inspirational person! Her kind words regarding my artwork was so encouraging. Trying to decide whether to keep the good corporate job or pursue a dream of owning a B&B, we asked Ruby's opinion. She told us to run with it - no one knows how long they have to live but to enjoy what we were doing mattered. So we did! Thank you Ruby for adding to our happiness. We will miss you always. Hugs and prayers to the family.

The world has lost a great loving person, and we share in your loss as there was no one else like Ruby L. Davis. One time I told Ruby I wanted to be just like her - a sweet old lady - and asked what her secret was. After chuckling, she told me to be sweet I had to be careful what I listened to and what I believed. She told me to get old I'd have to be careful how I took care of my body. And to be a lady I had to always remember to be kind and mind my manners. The absence of Ruby in the world leaves a hole of sweetness and kindness and she will be greatly missed.
