ORLANDO, Fla. Billips, Ruby June Stowers, 92, graduated to heaven on February 24, 2013. She was born June 19, 1920, the youngest of Esther and Jonah Stowers' four children, in Bluefield, Va., and hence received the nickname, "Bluefield", from her beloved granddaughter, Anna Chubb. She has lived in Orlando, Fla. for 56 years, moving there with her husband, Phillip (who predeceased her in 1986).

After graduating from McClain Business College in Bluefield, W.Va., Ruby served in many offices doing office, bookkeeping, and secretarial work. She spent over 30 years serving Auto Master, Inc. in Winter Park, Fla. She also was a housewife and mother to Judy Chubb (Karl), Orlando, and Don Billips, Winter Springs, Fla. In addition to her two children, "Nana", as she was known to her family, is survived by four grandchildren, Anna Chubb, Togo, West Africa, Andrew Chubb, Hollywood, Calif., Michael Billips (Erika), Columbus, Ohio, and Brian Billips, Winter Springs, Fla.

Ruby always had a song in her heart and music, especially singing, was a major part of her life. She had a beautiful soprano voice and used her God-given talent for the Lord, singing in the choirs at the First United Methodist Churches in Bluefield, Va. and Winter Park, Fla.

Ruby will be buried next to her husband, Phillip, and their first daughter, Alice Sue Billips, who died at birth in Bluefield, Va., at the Maple Hill Cemetery on Saturday, March 9. There will be a graveside service only on Saturday, March 9, 2013 at 10:00 a.m. at the Maple Hill Cemetery with the Rev. Brad Scott officiating.

There will be a memorial service to honor Ruby at her "adopted church" Starlight Baptist Church, 350 Hayes Rd., Winter Springs, FL 32708 on Saturday, March 16 at 3:00 p.m.

Contributions may be made in her honor to Building Fund at Starlight Baptist Church.

Dudley Memorial Mortuary in Bluefield, Va. is serving the Billips family.
