  • We have many fond memories of Ruby. She was a beautiful Christian lady. Her love for Jesus shined brightly as well as her love for her Church. The past couple of years, she struggled physically. We know today that she is rejoicing in Heaven with her Jesus. Our thoughts and prayers are with each of you.

  • Ruby was such a special person who loved life, her family and her God. She was a wonderful neighbor and she loved cats. There wasn’t a cat in the neighborhood who went hungry. RIP Ruby.

  • At one time I worked with Ruby at Fred Barr Realty and with Bud at North Electric Company. We had some really great conversations and special memories we shared. My condolences to the Zieg family.

  • What a wonderful lady Ruby was. She was on the board of our food pantry a few years ago and was a very hard worker for us. We missed her when she could longer attend our meetings or activities. I would visit her at Magnolia. Rest in Peace Ruby. Thinking of the family!!

  • I have many wonderful memories of this beautiful and sweet Christian lady. Our dad would take us each summer to visit Aunt Flora and the Zieg family. Will always remember the fun we had with Steve, Randy and Karla. So disappointed our family is unable to attend the graveside service. We are PRAYING for the Zieg family .

  • Steve and Sheila,

  • So sorry to hear of Ruby’s passing. She was one of my first Sunday School teachers & a great example of Christian living. I can’t remember a time when she wasn’t involved with helping out at the church,whether it was Bible School,church dinners,anniversary celebrations,funeral dinners,home visitations, to name a few. Everyone in my family over multiple generations has been touched in some way by this wonderful lady & we will truly miss her. My heartfelt condolences go out to the family at this time of loss.May God take away the sting of her passing.Heaven gained a true angel!

  • We are so sorry to read about Ruby’s home going. We will remember you in our prayers at this time in your lives. Ruby was a beautiful Christian lady that you could tell by the love that she had for people. It was our pleasure to know her as a business lady, honest and caring for her contacts.

  • We remember our father’s special fondness for our cousin Ruby. Dad, “Harold” Bill Stowers, always looked forward to seeing her during our trips from Florida to Ohio when we were very young. This visit was so special because Aunt Flora, who was an adult when Dad was born, helped raise him. We send our love to all of Ruby’s family.
