     Ruby Fern Hall married Robert Stanley "Bob" Sides.5,7 Her Social Security Number was 224-09-1844.8 Ruby Fern Hall was buried at Sherwood Burial Park, 1045 Lynchburg Turnpike, Salem, Roanoke Co., Virginia.5 Her married name was Sides. She was born on June 9, 1918 at Flint, Floyd Co., Virginia.8,5,1,2,4 She married Larry C. Garvin on April 21, 1941.5,1,2 As of April 21, 1941,her married name was Garvin. Ruby Fern Hall died on June 18, 2002 at Roanoke Co., Virginia, at age 84.5,8,9 She SIDES, Ruby Hall Garven, still looking younger than her 84 years, went home to be with our Lord on Tuesday, June 18, 2002. Ruby spent several years tormented by Alzheimer's Disease, which robbed her of her keen enjoyment of life and her expertise in the business world. Ruby was born on June 9, 1918, in Floyd County, Va. to Eliza Lawrence Hall and Edgar Eldon Hall. Later, her family moved to Salem, Va. After completing high school and some college, Ruby moved to Washington, D.C. to begin her employment. She soon met Larry Garven, her wonderful first husband and the devoted father of their three children. During their married life, Ruby and Larry always worked together in their businesses-a restaurant in Washington, D.C., the Gayheart Restaurant (Culpeper, Va.), the All Star Bowling Lanes Restaurant (Roanoke, Va.), and Beltone Hearing Service (Roanoke, Va.) After several heart attacks and battling Alzheimer's Disease, Larry passed away in 1976. Ruby continued to strengthen her expertise in antiques and art and later became an active, licensed appraiser. Ruby, an avid walker in Tanglewood Mall, was also a "regular" at the Roanoke Athletic Club for many years. Ruby always enjoyed a challenging game of Bridge with friends. Ruby's life was blessed by meeting and soon marrying the second love of her life, Robert Sides. They shared their love of travel across many countries until Bob's unfortunate death in 1991. When Ruby's mental health began to fail, God blessed her with J.R. and Ilene Wimmer, who moved into her home and became her wonderful care providers and extended family. We know that Ruby would not have enjoyed so many of her final years without their patient, loving, dedicated care. Ruby was a member of Rainbow Forest Baptist Church in Troutville, Va. She was well-known in the Abundant Life Sunday School Class for her scrumptious Chocolate Mint Petit Fours. Ruby is predeceased by her parents, both her husbands, a brother, Euray Hall, a sister, Agatha Smith, and a nephew, Robert Howard. Saddened by her passing, Ruby is survived by two sisters, Eula Goodwin (Buford) of Lady Lake, Florida and Pauline Seal of Salem, Va; three daughters, Carole Anne Willhide, Crescent City, Calif., Donna Finney (Curtis) of Suwanee, Ga., and Vicki Trest Dalton (Earl) of Fincastle, Va. Ruby loved her four grandchildren, Michael Willhide, Crescent City, Calif., Kevin Finney, Roanoke, Va., Stacy Finney, Suwanee, Ga., and Jennifer Trest Shepherd, Roanoke, Va. "Grandma Ruby" has three precious great-grandchildren, Shayna, Keiley and Jayden, all of Roanoke, Va. Ruby's family will appreciate your prayers and all expressions of kindness, including flowers, which Ruby loved. If you so desire, you may send a donation in Ruby's memory to the Alzheimer's Disease Research (15825 Shady Grove Road, Suite 140, Rockville, Md. 20850) or to the Rainbow Forest Baptist Church's Building Fund (3485 Rainbow Forest Drive, Troutville, Va. 24175). Ruby and her family would like to thank Dr. Michael Basile and his nursing staff for their years of conscientious medical care and the Carilion Hospice Team (Nan, Myrna, Martha and Clara) for their loving care. Visitation for friends and family will be on Wednesday, June 19, 2002, from 7 to 9 p.m. at Oakey's North Chapel. The Reverend J.R. Wimmer and Pastor Michael Grooms will lovingly conduct Ruby's funeral service at Oakey's North Chapel on Thursday, June 20, 2002, at 3 p.m. Interment will follow in Sherwood Memorial Park, Salem, Va. Funeral arrangements are by Oakey's North Chapel, Peters Creek Road, Roanoke, Va. (362-1237) on June 20, 2002.5
