Ruby Lee Brown Nesloney, 88, was surrounded by the love of family, friends and her loyal dog Lexi as she was called home to be with her Heavenly Father on August 13, 2019 in Rockport, TX. Ruby was born May 6, 1931 In Winters, Tx to W.F. and Jimmie Brown. She married the love of her life Earl H. Nesloney in Orange Grove, Tx. Ruby began her career as a Legal Secretary and Law Office Manager in Kingsville, Tx and worked for law firms until her retirement.
Ruby was a loving and devoted Wife, Mother and Grandmother. She was an avid reader and attended events by motivational speakers in the early 70’s that helped shape her beliefs in the power of the mind. Ruby was a stickler on correct grammar, proper posture and respectful conduct of children. After they moved back to the Annaville/Calallen area, Ruby and Earl were members of St. Peter Prince of the Apostles Catholic Church and joined many other clubs as they both enjoyed Art,Travel, Gardening, Model A Cars, Bridge and Books. They spent much of their time exploring North America in their RV. After the loss of her husband of 61 years, Ruby relocated to Rockport where she really enjoyed the new friends she made, time on her patio with Lexi and Father Ray’s Masses at Sacred Heart Catholic Church.
In addition to her husband, Earl, she was preceded in death by four brothers and one sister. She is survived by two children, Jeff (Kellie) Nesloney and Michelle Nesloney.; two grandchildren Amy (Matt) Burke and Ryan Nesloney; her sister Doris (Buddy) Perkins ; her lifelong childhood friend Betty (Bo) Wittliff Bearden and numerous nieces and nephews.
Ruby was blessed beyond measure to have Karina,Marina,&Marianna provide her in home loving care putting so much heart into their actions and bringing joy to her daily. Her next door neighbors Troy & Mirtha’s years of attentive devotion has been a Godsend, and there are no words to properly express our gratitude.
