Mrs. Ruby Senn Warnock, 87, passed away on March 19, 2018 at her home. She was born in Dublin, GA, to the late Mr. and Mrs. M.C. Senn.
After coming to Savannah, Mrs. Warnock took a job at The Custard Bar, a drive in restaurant. While working there, she met Bill Warnock. They soon married and on this past Nov. 27 celebrated their 70th wedding anniversary. She was a devoted wife and loving mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. Her grandchildren gave her much joy. She volunteered weekly in their classrooms, doing craft projects and providing homemade goodies. She and her husband loved taking them on different trips and outings. She especially enjoyed their vacations to Little Ocmulgee State Park.
Mrs. Warnock was a member of First Baptist Church of Richmond Hill. At First Baptist, she created a Sunday school class for preschool children and taught the BYKOTA Women's Sunday School Class. She also volunteered at vacation Bible school and served in the nursery.
Mrs. Warnock was an excellent cook and loved cooking for family and friends. Mrs. Warnock was also a talented artist. She enjoyed painting in acrylics, watercolors and oils. She was once a member of the Savannah Artist Guild. For several years she operated Barnyard Arts and Crafts. During this time she showcased her work at many craft shows. She was a member of the RHUMC Bunny Club where she donated her time and talent creating crafts for the bazaar. She was a master seamstress. She sewed anything from Halloween costumes to quilts.
Mrs. Warnock was employed by Electrical Machinery Co. for several years but left that job to take care of her mother who came to live with her and her family. In high school, Mrs. Warnock played basketball. She later played softball in a church league and bowled in a Savannah league. She was very giving and compassionate. For several years, she visited the residents at local nursing homes. She advocated for them as if they were her family. Though Mrs. Warnock enjoyed many activities in her life, her biggest enjoyment came from doing for and helping others.
She was preceded in death by her infant daughter, Vickie Lynn Warnock; and her two sisters, Edna Purvis and Esther Thigpen.
Mrs. Warnock is survived by her husband, Bill Warnock; her two children, Mike (Sherry) and Sheri (Chris); grandchildren, Dustin, Josh (RaeAnne) and Cody (fiancé Bri); great-grandson, Asher; sister, Emma Nell Anderson; and several nieces and nephews.
