Obituary for Ruby Fox

Ruby Fox, 87, of Portsmouth, VA, born March 30, 1931, went home to be with the Lord on October 30, 2018, while at home with her family. She was born in Caldwell County, NC and resided in Portsmouth, VA.

She is survived by her daughters, Sylvia Fagan and husband Michael, Cynthia Wells, Rebecca Bremer and husband Richard, and Joy Fox all of Portsmouth, VA; grandchildren, Amber Fagan and husband James Hunter, Amanda Fagan, Sara Norman and husband Steve, Jacob Jeske, Ricky Bremer, Wesley Bremer; great-grandchildren, Jillian Jeske, Scarlett Norman, Gabriel Jeske, Isabella Dana.

Ruby was a member of Temple Baptist Church in Chesapeake and had a deep desire for people to know the Lord as their Savior. Ruby was preceded in death by her husband of 62 years, Melvin; parents, William and Leona Atwood of Lenior, NC; sisters, Cordia Benge, Anne Franklin, Ruth Huffman, Ola Mae Murrow, Fannie Paysour. Ruby and Ruth were twins.

Ruby had a deep love for her Lord and Savior, for her husband, daughters, sons-in-law, grand-children, church family, and countless friends. She also had a great love for Jews. She was loved by many in her neighborhood, many who came to call her “granny”, and would often be seen faithfully taking a car full of children to church every chance she had. Her gift of unconditional love and mercy led many to accept Jesus as their Savior.

A funeral service will be held at 1pm on Monday, November 5, 2018, at Temple Baptist Church, Chesapeake, VA with Pastor Watson Morgan officiating. Burial will follow in Albert G. Horton, Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery. The family will receive family and friends from 2-4pm on Sunday, November 4, 2018, at Snellings Funeral Home, Geo. Washington Hwy, Chesapeake VA.
