Ruby Lee Younce Taylor passed from this life on May 9, 2022. She was born January 23, 1936 in Ashe County, NC.
She was predeceased by her parents Roy Lee and Bradie Bunton Younce, as well as four siblings, Willie Haskell Younce, Dovie Mae Younce Combs, Juanita (Pon) Younce Harmeyer, and Alma (Cricket) Younce Todd. She is survived by her husband Mark Taylor and stepson Mark Taylor, Jr. along with her sister, Barbara Younce Bartlett. Ruby was dearly loved by her 4 nieces and 10 nephews, as well as their children and grandchildren.
Although she lived in many places, she considered the mountains her home. She and her husband Mark, and their two dogs, Haley and Harley, returned here several years ago where she enjoyed being with family and living in the community of Bethel once again. She loved going to Stone Mountain (Tommy's) grocery store to get her Nutty Buddy fix and to chat with whoever was there!
She was a member of Bethel Baptist Church and loved the people there. She was the matriarch of her family and will be greatly missed.
