Ruby Carroll Obituary

Ruby Faye Patteson Carroll, 92, of Statesville, North Carolina, went to be with our Lord on Sunday, January 21, 2024, at Brookdale Peachtree Memory Care in Statesville, North Carolina, after a long struggle with Alzheimer's and, recently, covid.

Born March 30, 1931, in Mercer County, West Virginia, she was the daughter of the late Jesse R. Patteson and Exie Gore Patteson.

Ruby was a member of Fork Baptist Church in Mocksville, North Carolina, and during her life was a very loving daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, and sister, and was a friend to everyone she met.

She was a 1949 graduate of Beaver High School and went to work for Service Storage (which later became Smith's Transfer Corporation) on April 20, 1949.   She continued working for Smith's Transfer until it closed its doors.

Ruby was active serving the Lord at church most of her life.   She loved making things and was a member of the Christian Craft Club in Bluefield, West Virginia, for many years.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, George M. Carroll, Jr., siblings, Crozier Patteson, Pearl Fortner, Clayton Patteson, Kyle Patteson, Tommy Patterson and Betty Long.         

Left to cherish her precious memory are her daughter Deborah Sarver (Doug); grandchildren, Douglas Sarver (Becca) and Kristen Goodwin (Josh); great granddaughter Stella Sarver; siblings: Launa Barrett, Rosella Bird, Sue Lilly (Clinton) and James Patteson; and a host of nieces and nephews.
