Gray, GA - Ruby Irene Seagraves Dailey, 96, passed away at home surrounded by her family on April 14, 2014 after a brief illness. Ruby lived in Jackson County all her life until 12 years ago when she moved to Gray, GA to be near family.

She was the daughter of the late Birdie and Mary Seagraves of Jackson County. She was a homemaker and retired textile business worker. Ruby was the oldest member of Nicholson Baptist Church. She retired from Commerce Mfg. Co. and after that she and her husband did some travel but mostly spent her time enjoying her family and piecing quilt tops. Her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren each have at least one quilt made especially for them.

Ruby enjoyed sports. She was a big Georgia Bulldog fan and attended Georgia football games until the end. She also enjoyed watching her grandchildren and in later years her great-grandchildren participate in all their activities. Family was very important to her.

Ruby was predeceased by her husband of 51 years, Thomas E. Dailey. She was also predeceased by three sisters, Nellie Tolbert, Mamie Smith and Tellie Mae Kesler and three brothers, Hoyt Seagraves, Jewel Seagraves and Amory Seagraves.

Ruby is survived by two daughters and their husbands; Beverly and Wesley Wells of Gray, GA and Martha Lynn and J.D. Comstock of Gainesville, FL. Also surviving are three grandsons, Tommy (Amy) Wells of Athens, GA, Ken (Greer) Wells of Watkinsville, GA, Jared (Stephanie) Comstock of Gainesville, FL and one granddaughter, Paige Comstock of Boston, MA. She is also survived by nine great-grandchildren who were the loves of her life; Wesley, Luke, Tanner and Zach Wells; Karlee, Kendall, Kourtney and Kamryn Wells, and Calvin Comstock. She has one surviving sibling, Allie Farmer of Nicholson, GA.

She was affectionately known as Mother, Granga, Nanga, and Na-Na by her loving family who cherish the happy memories of her. She left us with quite a legacy.

Funeral services will be held at 2 PM, Friday, April 18 at Nicholson Baptist Church with Rev. Barry Collins and Rev. Terry Smith officiating. Interment will follow in Jackson Memorial Gardens. The family will receive friends at the funeral home Thursday night from 5 to 8 PM.
