Ruby Mae (Woods) Lunsford

January 23, 1931 ~ June 20, 2022 (age 91)


Ruby Woods Lunsford was born January 23, 1931 and passed away on June 20, 2022 at the age of 92. She was born in Blount County, AL, but lived her adult life in Jefferson County, AL. She graduated from Cleveland High School class of 1948. She worked at Pasquales Pizza for 53 years and loved every day that she worked. She finally retired at age 87. She was a member of 2nd Ave Baptist Church of Oneonta, AL and attended faithfully until the Covid came. She loved NASCAR and the Atlanta Braves. She was able to have a long and wonderful life until the age of 90. At age 90 her health stopped her. But for those 90 years she lived life the way she wanted, very independent and was able to take care of her son, Harold. At age 90 she broke her ankle. We are grateful to the nurses at East Glen Nursing Home for the care they provided. Ruby’s father, William Earnest Woods passed away when she was three months old. She was also preceded in death by her mother, Liddie LeCroy, and the father who raised her, Dewey LeCroy; her son, Harold Garner; a granddaughter, Deanna Garner; two brothers and two sisters. She is survived by her daughter, Joyce (Paul) Fox of Clanton, AL; son, Randy (Susie) Garner of Dothan, AL; six grandchildren, fourteen great grandchildren and seven great-great grandchildren; two sisters, Bonnie (Edward) Yancey of Snead, AL and Betty Phillips of Oneonta, AL; her brother, James (Joyce) LeCroy of Palmerdale, AL, and many other family members.  Family and friends will gather at Jefferson Memorial Funeral Home in Trussville for visitation on Thursday, June 23, 2022 from 11:00 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. A graveside service will immediately follow at Jefferson Memorial’s adjoining cemetery at 12:00 pm. Reverend Dale Young will preside over the service.
