Obituary for Ruby Wilkins Floars

Ruby Wilkins Floars, 91, passed away on Monday at the home of her daughter in Princeton.

Ruby was born in Johnston County on July 25, 1927 and was the last surviving daughter of the late Barney and Dora Bridgers Wilkins. She was married for 50 years to the late Alstyne E. Floars. Ruby was a valued employee of Southern Bell for 33 years and was a member of the Telephone Friends and Pioneer Club. She was a faithful member of Victory Free Will Baptist Church. Ruby was a true Christian lady who loved God and lived each day showing those around her what faith in action is all about. She will be remembered by many as caring, giving, loving, and determined lady.

The family will receive friends on Thursday, September 6, 2018 from 10:00 – 10:45 a.m. at Seymour Funeral Home followed by a service to celebrate Ruby’s life at 11:00 a.m. in the chapel. Interment will be in Wayne Memorial Park.

Ruby is survived by her daughters, JoAnn Herring of Princeton and Delores Blakeney and husband Tommy of Winterville; grandchildren, John and Angie Blakeney, Jennifer and Joel Mullen, Jason and Rebecca Blakeney, and Amy Herring; and ten great-grandchildren.
In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by her son, Vernon A. Floars; grandson, Brian C. Herring; sister, Estelle Woodard; and brothers, Frank, Emmett, Lenly, Raymond and Harvey Wilkins.

We would like to give a very special thank you to the wonderful staff of 3HC for the love and care they provided for Ruby during her final days. Simple words cannot express our gratitude.

Flowers are welcome or memorials may be given to Victory Free Will Baptist Church, 1806 Wayne Memorial Drive, Goldsboro, NC 27534; 3HC, 2402 Wayne Memorial Drive, Goldsboro, NC 27534; or the charity of one’s choice.
