Ruby Beatrice Walker Sullivan

Ruby Beatrice Walker Sullivan, 81, gained her angel wings when she went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Sunday, August 28th, at her home in Louisville, MS, surrounded by family and friends.

She was born August 9, 1935, in Louisville, MS, to Orby David Walker and Annie Jane Smith Walker. A Celebration of Life service will be held at 10:00 A.M. Tuesday, August 30th, at Zion Chapel Pentecostal Church, with Brother Dewayne Kelsey officiating. Interment will be in Memorial Park Cemetery. Visitation will be from 5:00 to 8:00 P.M. Monday at Zion Chapel Pentecostal Church, and from 8:00 to 9:45 A.M. on Tuesday.

 Retiring from Wal-Mart, she worked with Community Counseling Services, where she helped clients with life skills. At the age of 59, she earned her GED from ECCC. In 2010, she devoted her time to meeting with local government officials and representatives to establish a senior citizen organization. She wanted seniors to have a safe place in Winston County to meet and socialize. She worked tirelessly for months. Finally, her hard work and dedication paid off when the Red Hills Senior Enrichment Organization was formed in 2012, where she served as president. The group went from twelve members to an average of thirty members. The organization meets once a month for fellowship, food, and informative speakers. She was well known throughout the community and town for always helping others and making them feel welcomed. She shared the hospitality, love, compassion, and faith in God with everyone she met. She always had a listening ear and a willing heart to help others when in need. This was often demonstrated through her work and helping hands in her church ministry at Zion Chapel Pentecostal Church. She enjoyed spending endless hours in her yard and garden. She adored her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren and loved the time they spent together. Life is the gift God has given us. Death is only a bridge to eternal life with God. Heaven is rejoicing today, because she has reached her eternal home and is now healed. Over the last few months, when asked how she was feeling, she replied, “God is taking care of me, and I’m a winner either way”. 

She is survived by two daughters, Charline (Bill) Stewart of Louisville, MS, and Marilyn (Jerry) Bressler of Harlingen, TX; four grandchildren, Renee Stewart Allen (Fiancé Randy Aultman) of Caledonia, MS, Suzanne Stewart (Alan) Brown of Caledonia, MS, Benji (Liz) Davis of Texas City, TX, and Charles Davis of Texas City, TX; six great grandchildren, Jesse Allen, Clara Allen, Addie Kate Brown, Ryker Brown, Liam Davis, and Phoebe Davis; two sisters, Joy (Leonard) Hunt of Louisville, MS, and Nellie (Junior) Bailey of Louisville, MS; one brother, George “Buck” Walker of Longview, MS; and one sister-in-law, Barbara Walker of Belton, SC. She was preceded in death by her husband of 56 years, Clarence “Bud” Sullivan; her parents, Davis Orby and Annie Jane Smith Walker; her sisters, Marie Hemphill and Minnie Mae Foster; a brother, Orby Walker, and a niece, Deanie Foster Stewart.

Memorials may be made to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital (www.stjude.org).
