Ruby J. Kiger, 86, went home to be with the Lord on January 5, 2021. Born April 28, 1934 in Yadkin County NC to the late Floyd Jester and Callie Matthews Jester. Ruby was ninth of 10 children.

Ruby was so happy to be blessed with 13 grandchildren and 26 great-grandchildren.  She also has 18 nieces and nephews, several great- nieces and nephews. She loved and cherished each one.  She was devoted to the Lord, her family, her friends, and her neighbors.  The children in her neighborhood referred to her as "Miss Ruby."  She would call them over to the house for cake and candy.  She touched so many people's lives with her loving spirit and Ruby was still very humorous even after she went to the nursing home. She could make the staff laugh! Ruby and Willie had 28 wonderful years together. She was very heartbroken when he died. They worked in the yard, loved traveling, going to church, and family time. Ruby retired from Hanes Hoisery after 38 years. Then she went to work at Indera Mills for 12 years. During this time she was a former member of Richmond Hill Baptist Church and became a dedicated member of Forest Hill Baptist Church where she served as the treasurer for many years. The family would like to say a special thank you to the staff at Oak Forest Health and Rehabilitation for the care you gave Ruby! Thank you to her wonderful roomate Virgina Westor.  You have been a tru blessing!
