Ruby Evelyn Houser Sain
October 19, 1925 - March 30, 2020

VALE - Ruby Houser Sain, age 94, of Vale, N.C. entered the presence of our loving Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, on Monday, March 30, 2020.

A private graveside service will be held.

Ruby was born in Lincoln County, daughter of the late Edney and Katie Houser. She was also preceded in death by her loving husband Steele Jonas Sain after 56 wonderful years; and three brothers, David, Jason, and Everette Houser.

Steele and Ruby parented six children. She is survived by her children, Jack Sain (Jane) of Punta Gorda, Florida, Jerry Sain (Bobbie) of Vale, Donnie Sain (Wanda) of Cumming, Georgia, Dennis Sain of Vale, Kathy Sain Rash (Michael) of Clemson, South Carolina, and Tom Sain (Michelle) of Vale, as well as 11 grandchildren, 13 great-grandchildren, and Carolyn Houser Lackey, sister, who resides in Statesville, North Carolina.

Ruby, a graduate of Lenoir Rhyne University in 1944, began a 38-year teaching career teaching hundreds of 3rd and 4th grade students from several elementary, including Howard’s Creek, North Brook, Love Memorial, and Union. Her students were the source of many of her fondest memories as she often celebrated their later adult careers.

Ruby's love of music began early at Bethphage Lutheran Church where she served as a Sunday School pianist. Later, she volunteered as organist for her home church, Trinity Lutheran Church in Vale, for 57 successive years. She also shared her love of music with the youth and children in Sunday School, Christmas, and on other special occasions. On her last Sunday afternoon, she could be heard singing at Peak Resources with her visiting family members.

Ruby also demonstrated a perpetual green thumb. Her love of flowers and gardens inspired her to grace several community homes as she freely “shared” her gifts with friends and neighbors. However, in lieu of flowers, please freely give to a charity of your choice, Trinity Lutheran Church Music Ministry, PO Box 7, Vale NC 28168, or Word of Life Lutheran Church, PO Box 75, Vale, NC. 28168.

Warlick Funeral Home of Lincolnton, N.C. is serving the Sain family.
