She was a longtime member of First Baptist Church of Grapevine. Ruby married Norris Graham on Oct. 12, 1947, and the couple made their home outside Grapevine raising chickens and working a dairy farm. In the early 1950s, Norris and his father, Virgil, opened the Quickway Grocery and Ruby worked at the business alongside them. She devoted much of her time and energy to her family as a dedicated homemaker and enjoyed cooking and gardening. In retirement, Ruby and Norris traveled to beautiful golf courses and the cool mountains to enjoy all of God's beauty. Spending fun times with her children and grandchildren brought her great joy. The family wishes to thank their "angels from God" who cared for and loved their mother through the past few years: Angela, Anna, Dora, Everlyn, Guadalupe, Mellanie, Sarah and her niece, Kathy Denis. She was preceded in passing by her loving husband, Norris L. Graham; and her parents. Survivors: Her daughters, Linda Harwell and husband, David, of Waco and Gerrie Bewley and husband, Gregg, of Hamilton; grandchildren, Scott Graham, Holly and Larry Torri, Kurt and Jen Harwell, and Lindsey and Mitch Reese; great-grandchildren, Baylee, Russell and Audrey; and sister, Laura Mae Griffin of Grapevine.
