Age 86, Luray, Va.
On Tuesday morning, March 17, 2020, our Heavenly Father gathered his angels around. They needed a wonderful woman, a hard worker, someone who rarely complained, honest, trustworthy, and who had a heart of gold. It was time for her to go home. That was our precious Mother, Ruby Mae Pence.
