Rubye H. Kitchens

Wrens, GA  – After a long hard-fought battle with Alzheimers, Rubye Louise Huff Kitchens, 85, loving wife of 61 years to the late Ernest Lamar Kitchens, entered into rest  Thursday night, March 19, 2015 at her residence. Funeral services will be held at 3:00PM Sunday afternoon, March 22, 2015 at Reedy Creek Baptist Church with Rev. John A. Jenkins officiating. Interment will follow in the Jefferson County Memorial Gardens.

Rubye was one of four children born to the late Maude Smith Huff and the late Clarence Huff in Warren County and lived all of her life in this area.  She worked as a secretary for the Dental Clinic 1 at Fort Gordon, retiring after 30+ years of service. Rubye faithfully served her Lord at Reedy Creek Baptist Church. She enjoyed working in the yard and cooking—and was known for her coconut pies and red velvet cakes. She loved to fellowship with people by feeding them—she and Mr. Ernest were known for their cook outs where everyone was invited and no one left hungry. Rubye was a loving, friendly, giving woman of faith who is now with her beloved Savior and husband.

Rubye is also preceded in death by her brother, Clarence Huff, Jr. Survivors include her son, Jeffrey A. Kitchens; sister, Audrey Rose; brother, Robert Huff; sister-in-law, Jennell Kitchens Clark; and several nieces and nephews. Serving as pallbearers will be the active deacons of Reedy Creek. Honorary pallbearers will be the inactive deacons, Larry Hudson, Lindsey Leverett, Brian Usry and Phil Usry.

In lieu of flowers, the family respectfully requests that memorial contributions be made to Reedy Creek Baptist Church Building Fund, c/o Mark Davis, 214 Old Thomson Road, Wrens GA 30833.

The family will receive friends at Reedy Creek Baptist Church from 2:00-3:00 PM on Sunday, March 22, 2015—one hour prior to services.

Come With Me

The Lord saw you getting tired
And a cure was not to be
So He put His arms around you
And whispered, “Come with me.”

With tearful eyes, we watched you suffer
And saw you fade away.
Although we loved you dearly,
We could not make you stay.

A golden heart stopped beating,
A beautiful smile at rest.
God broke our hearts to prove
He only takes the best.

It’s lonesome here without you—
We miss you so each day.
Our lives aren’t the same
Since you went away.

When days are sad and lonely,
And everything goes wrong,
We seem to hear you whisper,
“Cheer up and carry on.”

Each time we see your picture,
You seem to smile and say,
“Don’t cry. I’m in God’s keeping.
We’ll meet again someday.”
