Ruby Ann Foley Day

February 16, 1938 — November 19, 2023


Ruby Ann Foley Day was born February 16, 1938, in Mexia Texas. She was a remarkable woman who lived her life to the fullest, leaving a lasting impression on all those who had the pleasure of crossing paths with her.  Ann was known for her adventurous spirit, her stunning inner and outer beauty, and her unwavering determination to conquer fear.

From an early age, Ann had a thirst for exploration and a love of traveling. She embarked on numerous adventures, always eager to discover new places and experience different cultures. Ann embraced every opportunity for growth and learning that traveling offered. Her indomitable spirit sparked curiosity in others, inspiring them to follow their own dreams of wanderlust.

Ann’s passion for adventure extended beyond mere travel - she actively sought out exhilarating activities that pushed her boundaries. Despite having a fear of water, she fearlessly donned snorkeling gear and immersed herself in the vibrant beauty beneath the surface. To conquer yet another fear, she took flying lessons and even indulged in parasailing, soaring high above as if defying gravity itself. From dog sledding in Alaska to taking her beloved grandchildren snow skiing annually, Ann found joy not only in conquering her own fears but also in sharing thrilling experiences with those dear to her.

However, Ann's proudest accomplishments were rooted in the warmth of hearth and home. She possessed an innate ability to create a sanctuary wherever she went. As an incredible homemaker, she transformed houses into homes filled with love and comfort. Her culinary skills were renowned among family and friends - each meal was carefully prepared with flavors that transported taste buds across continents.

But it was as a mother that Ann truly shone. Her nurturing nature knew no bounds as she guided her children through life's triumphs and tribulations with unwavering support. She instilled within them the values of kindness, compassion, and resilience, shaping them into the remarkable individuals they are today. Ann's unwavering presence and limitless love will forever be etched in their hearts.

Beyond her impressive endeavors, Ann will be remembered for her infectious laughter, radiant smile, and kind heart. Her ability to make others feel seen and valued was unparalleled. She had a magnetic personality that drew people towards her, leaving a mark on their lives that will endure long after her passing.

Ann passed away on November 19, 2023, leaving behind a legacy of fearlessness, adventure, and unwavering love. While we mourn her physical absence, let us also celebrate the incredible life she lived and cherish the memories we have of her. Ann's spirit will forever inspire us to embrace life's challenges with courage and to find beauty in every moment. May her soul find eternal peace as her memory continues to bring light into our lives.
