Ruby Irene Seagraves Dailey, 96, passed away at home surrounded by her family on April 14, 2014, after a brief illness.
Ruby had lived in Jackson County for all her life, until 12 years ago when she moved to Gray to be near family.
Ruby was the daughter of the late Birdie and Mary Seagraves, of Jackson County. She was a homemaker, a retired textile business worker, and the oldest member of Nicholson Baptist Church. After retiring from Commerce Manufacturing Company, she and her husband did some travelling but Ruby 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 Bulldogs 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; three sisters: Nellie Tolbert, Mamie Smith, and Tellie Mae Kesler; and three brothers: Hoyt, Jewel, and Amory Seagraves.
She is survived by two daughters and their husbands: Beverly and Wesley Wells, of Gray, and Martha Lynn and J.D. Comstock, of Gainesville, Fla.; three grandsons and their wives, Tommy and Amy Wells, of Athens, Ken and Greer Wells, of Watkinsville, and Jared and Stephanie Comstock, of Gainesville, Fla.; and one granddaughter: Paige Comstock, of Boston, Mass. 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.
Ruby was affectionately known as Mother, Granga, Nanga, and Na-Na by her loving family, who all cherish the happy memories of her. She left us with quite a legacy.
The family will receive friends from 5 to 8 p.m. on Thursday, April 17, at the funeral home.
Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. on Friday, April 18, at Nicholson Baptist Church with the Revs. Barry Collins and Terry Smith officiating. Interment will follow in Jackson Memorial Gardens.
