Ruby was a talented gardener who could grow anything. She was an avid reader of biographies, nonfiction, and her Bible. A lover of music, she especially liked Elvis. Ruby appreciated nature, and she was happiest when outdoors. Being with her family was her greatest joy. Ruby loved time spent making bird and flower scrapbooks with her great granddaughter. She was an amazing and generous woman who will be forever missed.
She is survived by two sons, Larry and Michael Case, daughter Barbara Heath, thirteen beloved grandchildren, and many great grandchildren; a brother Larry Lockaby; two sisters, Joanne Shultz and Jenny Mull.
A funeral will be held Friday, May 11, 2012 at 2:00 PM in the chapel at Forest Lawn Funeral Home on Tracy Grove Road Hendersonville, NC. Entombment will be private.

Ruby is a first cousin (through my Mother, Gladys Lockaby Saltz). My wife, Georgia, and I very much enjoyed being in Ruby’s pleasant company on the rare occasions when we met at Lockaby gatherings. May good memories provide comfort to the members of Ruby’s family.
Grandma, I was so blessed to have you in my life for 38 years. I don’t know how I’ll get through the next 38 without you. I miss you already. I love you so much. Krissy
Ruby was such a sweet, quiet person and fun to be around. We are so sorry to hear of her passing. Our loss is Heavens’s gain. Our prayers are with you.
