Ruby Lucille Anderson Cornette passed peacefully at age 84 on April 27, 2012 after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s and cancer.  She had been a resident of Colony Ridge (Britthaven) nursing home for twelve years.

Ruby was born in Flatridge, Virginia on August 7, 1927.  She attended Berea College in Berea, Kentucky.   Ruby lived most of her life in Suffolk, Virginia where she was the Clerk of Juvenile Court.  She later moved to the Outer Banks to be near her daughter, Susie.  Ruby loved caring for others and became a nursing assistant at Britthaven and later provided in-home respite care for several Outer Banks citizens throughout the years.

Ruby is survived by her daughter, Susie Cornette Walters and husband, Tim;  grandson, Tim Walters, Jr.,  granddaughter, Erin Walters Cummings and husband, Beau;  granddaughters, Alanna and Kira Walters; and two sisters, Mary Hackler and Eva Phipps of Independence, Virginia.  In addition to her parents, James and Clair Anderson, she is predeceased in death by six sisters, Elno, Eula, Lorene, Pat, Jessie, and Betty, and four brothers, James, Marion, Paul and C.

A memorial service will be held at a later date in Independence, Virginia.
