Ruby Louise Walker Morgan went to be with Jesus on Saturday, September 12, 2020 at the age of 86. Her life is a living example of her love for Christ. She embodied Ephesians 4:32 in her daily life: “And be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another, just as God also forgave you.” Whether she was at Second Baptist Church, on the golf course or enjoying life with her family and friends, Ruby loved everyone she met and made each person feel special. In her last days, she painted or drew a picture for all her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren, which brought her much joy and left her family with a reminder of the beauty she brought to their lives. Ruby’s legacy is that she truly embodied the love of Christ. She leaves a place in the hearts of all who knew her that no one else can fill.
