grandmaobitRuby Mae Carper Edwards (99), of Richmond, Va., died Tuesday, October 25, 2017. Mae was born on October 23, 1918, in Dublin, Va., and lived for the last five years in Blackstone, Va.

She was beautiful, a lover of flowers and children, and an excellent cook. She worked at the Dr. Pepper bottling plant where she met her husband of almost 67 years, Kenneth G. Edwards, and fed many children as a cafeteria worker.

She is now finally at rest, reunited with all of her siblings, her parents, and her beloved “Cagey.”

The family would like to thank Nena Hines for her time, caring, and love during these last few years.
