Ruby Jean Green

A truly cherished Child of God, Ruby Jean Green, went to be with her Heavenly Father on Monday, January 23, 2017 at her home in Gainesville, Florida. Ruby was born on December 18, 1943, in Bronson, Florida to George William and Lorene Hogan Green. She attended Alachua County schools and graduated from Newberry High School. She retired from Compass Bank where she had been a valued employee after a successful and trusted career in the banking industry.
Miss Ruby Green, as she was fondly known, never compromised her Faith in God and the program of Alcoholics Anonymous and its spiritual principles. There were countless hearts in our community that were touched and changed with her voice of reason, wisdom, and grace in any situation presented to her. Ruby would always remind her beloved AA community of 26 years that it is “a design for living that really works.”
She was preceded in death by her parents; her sisters, Jean O’Steen and Barbara Edwards; and her brothers, William W. Green, Glenward D. Green, and George W. Green, Jr. She is survived by her sister, Wilma Jean “Cookie” Green, and her brother, Albert Roscoe Green, and many nieces, nephews, great-nieces and -nephews, cousins, and multitudes of friends in and out of the AA community and was beloved by all.
Funeral Services will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Monday, January 30, 2017 at Milam Funeral Home of Newberry, with a viewing one hour prior. Interment will follow in Laurel Hill Cemetery in Archer, Florida.
