Ruby Harris Obituary

Ruby Blanche Manis Harris, 89, of Buckingham County, Virginia, passed into the arms of our Lord on Saturday, February 10, 2024, while surrounded by the love of her daughters. She was active in her church families, with a heart for service, and was involved in many mission trips and projects. She enjoyed participating in social events and traveling, and was a member of the Buckingham Active Seniors group. Ruby loved spending time with her family, tending her garden and her flowers, working puzzles, and dancing. She was a true prayer warrior, and her favorite song was “How Beautiful Heaven Must Be”.

Ruby was preceded in death by her husband of 52 years, Joseph L. Harris; parents, David Manis and Mollie Manis; parents-in-law, Russell and Frances (Fannie) Harris; brothers Glen, Hugh, T.M., and Vaughn Manis; sisters, Lucille West and Betty Carr; son Terry Harris; and grandson Russell Smith III.
