Ruby Virginia Wilson



Ruby Virginia Suttle Wilson, 72, of Nebo, North Carolina, passed away Friday, December 04, 2020 at Carolinas HealthCare System- Blue Ridge in Morganton.


She was born in McDowell County on March 09, 1948 to the late Ed Suttle and Bertha Upton Suttle.


Ruby had a special place in her heart for children, and she worked as a bus monitor for many years. She always made sure the kids were fed and had a toy. She will be remembered for her great spaghetti and gumbo. She loved Jesus so much and was a member of Trinity United Methodist Church. A very funny, giving, and caring lady, Ruby loved super glue and duct tape. She was known as “the duct tape queen of Dysartsville.”


In addition to her parents, she is preceded in death by two brothers, Lee Roy Suttle and John E. Suttle, Jr.; and one sister, Infant Girl Suttle.


Survivors include her loving husband and best friend for 55 years, Roger Dean Wilson; one daughter, Sherry Rogers (Robert); two grandchildren, Zebulon and Mimosa Rogers; and two siblings, Harold Dean Suttle and Lola Suttle Bradshaw.


A funeral service will be held on Sunday, December 06, 2020 at Trinity United Methodist Church at 3:00 p.m. with Reverend Donald Morrison officiating. The family will receive friends from 2:00 to 3:00 p.m. Burial will follow in the church cemetery.

Roger and all the family of Ruby,
So sorry to learn this news. I hadn't seen Ruby in a long time, but the video brings backs so many memories of her. We were close in school and remained so in years following. I remember the two of us riding around Marion checking out all the places people our age hung out. I remember the chevy she drove, we thought we were so cool. We even double dated a few times, want say who we were with then. We had lots of clean fun, laughing and simply being together.

I remember the different places you and Ruby lived; Ellis St. Nix Creek Rd, Dysartsville. Ruby was always so devoted to looking out for her parents and was so happy with you Roger. A lot of good photos on the video that brought back memories of you both. I remember the little blue car she drove. I would often run into Ruby in town and the grocery store, and she brought me up to date on what was going on with you all, especially your health issues which I believe both of you had many We even had some sleep overs together with more of our friends during school days and we all enjoyed those. God will carry you through this time so lean on Him for comfort and strength. You will be in my prayers in the days ahead. God Bless you all.

I got acquainted with Ruby while waiting for school to dismiss each day. I looked forward to talking to her and we became good friends. She always had a smile on her face and she loved to talk about her family especially her grandchildren. My deepest sympathies to the family for your loss. She will truly be missed by all who knew her.
