Ruby Anderson Dennard Passes

A Celebration of The Life of Mother Ruby Anderson Dennard was held at Memorial Baptist Church. Reverend Dexter Jordan will officiated.

Ruby Lee Anderson Dennard, affectionately known as "Sue Nanny" and "Ma Ruby", was born on October 24, 1927, in Houston County. She was the first-born daughter of the late Christopher Anderson, Sr. and Addie Woolfolk Anderson, the second eldest of 14. She grew up and was educated in Twiggs County. At an early age, she was baptized and became a member of the Laurel Grove Baptist Church.

On April 5, 1947, she was united in holy matrimony to the late Rev. Lucious (L.H.) Dennard, Sr., and joined the Old Marion Baptist Church where she served as a deaconess and on the missionary board. She was a devoted housewife for 46 years. Into this union, God blessed them with 13 children. Because of her love of home, children and family, she was a caring homemaker; and committed her life to caring for her husband, family, friends, and community.

Ma Ruby was a wise and courageous woman with a quiet and gentle spirit. However, she had a strong determination to remind everyone of the importance of having a personal relationship with Christ. Her greatest joy was in knowing that her children were saved and actively involved in the church.

She was preceded in death by her parents, a loving husband, Rev. L.H. Dennard; sisters, Eula Mae, Addie, Georgia; brother, Ulysses, Sr.; and grandson, Jeremy.

Mother Ruby Dennard was a woman of extraordinary grace and dignity given to us by God - a gift so full of riches that its worth continues to increase with each remembrance and reflection.
