Andersen, Ruby Nell Vause Smith  
Ruby Nell Vause Smith Andersen Ruby Nell Vause Smith Andersen passed away at age 90 at the Big Bend Hospice House in Tallahassee, FL on Saturday, April 18, 2015. Mrs. Andersen was born on June 30, 1924 in the Arran Community in Crawfordville, FL to W.I. "Butch" and Nellie C. Vause. She is preceded in death by her four brothers, five sisters and one son: Parker Vause, Thomas Vause, Paul Vause, Cajah Vause, Lockie Wright, Ethelle Moore, Gwen Rabitaille, Frances Thompson and Mary Wooten.

She was a stay-at-home mother for most of her life until she went to work at Florida Commerce Federal Credit Union in 1970. She served in Collections and moved up to Loan Officer; a position which she held until her retirement in 1993. Her reputation preceded her as a caring person who would "go the extra mile" to help someone out, but, stern to the point of making sure they promised to get their credit straight and keep it that way. This was a well known fact to her family on many occasions when individuals would come up to thank her for helping them out when no one else would. She was an outstanding example of how one should live their life: doing things for others that you'd like done for you. The family will greet friends from 5:00-7:00 p.m. on Wednesday, April 22, 2015, at Culley's Funeral Home, 1737 Riggins Road, Tallahassee, FL. Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m., Thursday, April 23, 2015 at Woodville First Baptist Church, 9500 Woodville Highway.
