Ruby Mae Tennis Obituary
Tennis, Ruby Mae



On March 21, 1936 our Lord sent us an Angel! On September 14, 2016 our Lord took her home!

Ruby Mae Tennis, 80, passed away on Wednesday, September 14, 2016 with her daughter by her side. Ruby sustained a traumatic brain injury on September 9, 2015 and "Valiantly" fought to live for 372 days.

Ruby worked in the food service industry for 56 years, and retired from the Four Seasons Hotel in 2005 after 35 years of service.

Ruby will be remembered as a spirited lady who loved her life, never complained, was greatful for all she had, and the beautiful smile on her face.

Ruby was preceded in death by her unborn sister; parents Sam and Sue Williams; and beloved brother-in-law Raymond (Gene) Johnson.

Ruby is survived by son Rodney Tennis; daughter Raelynne Tennis and husband Frank; granddaughters Mickellea Tennis, Katrina Tennis Malick; and sister Barbara Johnson.

*Mom my world is now a lonely place, and if I could visit heaven even for a day, maybe the pain would go away. I would put my arms around you, and whisper words so true, that life living without you, is the hardest thing to do. No matter how I spend my days, no matter what I do, no morning dawns or evening falls, when I don't think of you. You will forever be in my heart!

The family would like to thank the staff and team at Ambercare Hopsice and Princeton Place for the care they provided, and a "Special Thanks" to Sandy Jauriqui and Dora Villalobos for their "personal" loving care they provided our Mom.

Memorial services will be scheduled at a later date.a
