Mary Ruth Bilbrey, 84, of Auburn, a faithful Christian who devoted her life to caring for her family, died Saturday, April 16, at the Medical Center in Bowling Green.
She was born June 16, 1937 to Arnel and Ruby Gore Bilbrey and attended Chandlers School.
She worked at the Auburn Hosiery Mill and Hancock’s store in Russellville. She was a member of the Auburn Church of Christ.
Mary Ruth never married, but she adored her nieces and nephews and spent many years providing care for them. As her parents aged, she cared for both of them at home until they passed away.
Aside from her parents, she was also preceded in death by a brother, Carlos Bilbrey, of Chandlers. She is survived by two sisters, JoAnn (Charles) Belcher, of Auburn, and Elizabeth (John Henry) Morgan, of Russellville, as well as six nieces and nephews.
A graveside service will be on Wednesday April 20 at 2:00 p.m. at Berea Cemetery in Adariville. Online condolences and more can be made at kirbyfuneralservices.com. Please pray for the family and friends.
