  1. So sad, Ive lived in Crossville my whole life. Ruby was a hoot always used to walk by the house when I was a kid and cut up with me. She was definitely a huge part of Crossville and will be missed!

  2. Ruby was just that. A precious gem and one in a million. My grandmother Clara and Ruby were the original Thelma and Louise. 😂. She was truly a legend and one of the sharpest, toughest women you could have ever met.
