On Monday, July 5th, 2010 Ruby Pauline Holt finished her role here on earth as mother of four, grandmother of eight, and great grandmother of eleven and a servant of Jesus Christ since 1950. Born Ruby Pauline Milam on April 18, 1918 at Tolleytown, she was the daughter of the late James and Nancy Tolley Milam. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Corbet P.

Ruby was a resident of Maple Meadow since 1941. She was a faithful member of the Akers Baptist Church since 1950. A homemaker, she enjoyed needle work, quilting, and daily domino game with her family. She was long time fan of the Cincinnati Reds baseball team and enjoyed following local high school sports.
