Ruby was born in Kinder, Louisiana, to Rose and William Austin Sr. on August 15, 1921. She was the eighth of nine children. Ruby was legally blind. She completed the second grade but could not finish the third grade due to her inability to see the chalkboard. One night she went to a dance and met a shy gentleman named Joe Baxter. On December 21, 1949, she married Joe, the love of her life. They were married for 65 years until the time of his death. Their three children, Bobby, Linda and Zina, kept them on their toes! One of her favorite things to do was planting roses in her garden. You could also always find her at the local garage sales. Those who knew her had many affectionate names for her including Momma, Mom, Ladybug, Granny Ruby and Tutti Frutti. Ruby went to her eternal home on November 23, 2017, Thanksgiving morning. What a joyous Thanksgiving in Heaven!
