Ruby L. Taylor

December 5, 1923 — August 17, 2023

Ruby Leona “Ledy” Taylor was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother, sister, and aunt. She gained her wings on August 17, 2023, at the young age of 99 in Southaven, MS.

She was born to Ollie and Neva Ogle in Albertville, AL on December 5, 1923. She grew up in the Fort Payne area of Alabama helping her family in the fields and later working in the sock factories.

She married her loving husband Charles A. Taylor in 1956. They had one daughter, Cathy.

Ruby enjoyed spending time with her family, putting jigsaw puzzles together, cooking, gardening, bragging on her grandchildren and great-grandchildren to anyone that would listen, and her independence. She was loved by so many people and will be dearly missed.

She leaves behind her daughter; Cathy (John) Cox, 2 granddaughters; Melissa (Jeremy) Funderburk, Charly (Wes) Fortenberry, and 3 great-grandchildren; Taylor, Allison, and Ruby.
