Ruby Lee Johnson-Hutson, who was 82, was born May 9, 1937, to the late Bosie Lee and Lottie Johnson in
Doerun, Georgia. As a young girl, her parents relocated to Oakland Park, Florida. She received her education
through the Broward County School System and graduated from Dillard High School in 1958. While attending Dillard High School, she was nominated for the Sophomore Attendant.

Ruby was baptized at an early age and joined New Bethel Primitive Baptist Church and faithfully served for more than 70 years under the late Reverend L. V. Hobbs. She was a former member of Tabernacle M. B. Church in Tallahassee, Florida, under Reverend Stanley L. Walker Sr. She was a member of New Bethel P. B. Church’s Usher Board, Sunday School, Choir, and the Sick and Shut-In Ministries. Ruby retired as an electronic assembler and worked for the Broward County School System as a Foster Grandparent, where she was inducted into the Broward County Hall of Fame. She had an impact on everyone and will be remembered for her beautiful smile, family gatherings, and love for one another.

Ruby leaves behind to cherish her memories: Three beautiful daughters: Patricia A. Keaton of Tallahassee, FL, Melinda A. Shepard of Ft. Lauderdale, FL, and Shawn R. Norton of Ft. Lauderdale, FL; one son: Gabriel Norton of Ft. Lauderdale, FL; two sisters: Mary Alice Cooper and Willie Pearl Ingram of Ft. Lauderdale, FL; twenty-three grandchildren, fifty-two great-grandchildren, and twelve great-great-grandchildren; and a host of loving nieces, nephews, cousins, and sorrowing friends. She was preceded in death by three sons: Alvin J.
Walker, Lorenzo Shepard Jr., and Alonzo Shepard; one sister: Beatrice Lane; four brothers: Kenneth, Willie B., Ulysee, and Leroy Johnson; and three grandchildren: Dewey McLemore III, Shanesha Conaway, and Sheldyria Shepard.
