Ruby Dellinger

Marion, Va.

Ruby Mae Dellinger age 102 formerly of Vansant, Va., passed away Monday, September 18, 2023 at Francis Marion Manor, Marion, Va.  

Miss Mae was a loving mother and Granny Mae. She loved her family and they adored her, especially when she served up anything from the kitchen—fried chicken, dumplings, pork cake, and candy. Mae loved to sew and quilt. She was the most loving lady but also very stubborn, independent and strong willed. 102 seems like a lifetime but it will never be enough.

 

She was preceded in death by her husband, Omer Dellinger; son, James Dellinger; parents, Bud and Lucinda Riddle; grandson, Brandon Dellinger; she was the last of seven children.

 

Mae is survived by her son, Robert Dellinger and wife, Marylin of Poquoson, Va.; two grandchildren, Dr. Theresa Ann Dellinger and husband, Steve Swenson of Christiansburg, Va., Dr. Laura Lester and husband, Jeff of Chilhowie, Va.; five great-grandchildren, Cameron Hutton, Carson Hutton, Ally Swenson, Caden Hutton, and Aiden Lester; several nieces and nephews; special friends, Loweda Gillespie, Betty Morefield and Mary Ruth Spencer.

 

The family will receive friends Wednesday, September, 20, 2023 from 4 until 6 p.m. at Fraziers’ Seaver-Brown Chapel.  Funeral services will begin at 6 p.m. with Evangelist Mike Rife officiating. Graveside services will be held Thursday September 21, 2023 at 2 p.m. at Temple Hill in Castlewood, Va. Family and friends are asked to be at the cemetery by 1:45 p.m.

 

Flowers appreciated but donations to your favorite charity in her honor would make her smile.
