Ruby Harris Obituary, Death – Ruby Harris, a member of our chapter, died away yesterday evening, and I am sad to have to be the one to break the news to you, but I must tell you with a heavy heart that I am sorry to have to do so. Ruby served as our registrar for a considerable amount of time before she was elevated to the position of second vice president, which is a position she held for a lot of years. During that time, she was also advanced to the position of third vice president.
Please accept our sincere sympathies on behalf of ourselves, her family, and each and every one of her fellow UDC sisters and friends. We were deeply saddened to hear of her passing. We were all left with a profound sense of loss upon learning of her departure. Bonnie Blue Flag Chapter 2124 Mobile, Alabama It makes me pleased to know that she is aware that the relocation of our memorial at Virginia Beach to private land at the Beach has been approved and that there will be no issues associated with the move.
This piece of news has absolutely made my day. She, along with her son Kenny and another chapter member named Ann Henley, was an integral part of the process that led to the sale of the property to the Princess Anne 435 UDC Chapter of the Princess Anne Sons of Confederate Camp and the Shenandoah Valley Battlefields Foundation. All three of them were involved in the transaction. Both of these groups are committed to preserving the rich history of the battlegrounds located in the Shenandoah Valley.
When she goes, all of us are going to experience a terrible sense of loss since she is no longer here.
