November 10, 1936 - March 15, 2022
Ruth Dunn Williams was born in Letcher County, KY on November 10, 1936 and passed away in Louisville, KY on March 15, 2022. She was very present within her community - a member of Beechland Baptist Church, attended Louisville Baptist Temple, an active member of the PRP Women’s Club, Square Dance Clubs, The Grassroots Democratic Club, and a member of the PTA at many schools. Although she was preceded in death by Billy J Dunn at the age of 59, with whom she was married for 35 years, she became a strong independent source that wasn’t easily beaten by many illnesses over the years. She had a brief marriage to Astor Williams, a lifelong friend at age 74, who passed away a mere two years later. We, her three children - James Kenneth Greene, Twila Dunn Carby (Bobby, “her favorite son-in-law”) and Tanya Dunn Clark want to remember her as such. She continued her life to experience many of her 8 grandchildren - Alicia Carby Nies (Chris), Jason Greene (Coleen), Robert Carby III (Lauren), Michael Greene, Caasiah Carby (Quincey Samatra) Matthew Clark, Billie Clark, Joshua Fry - to see them graduate, marry, achieve great accomplishments and have her 5 great-grandchildren - Conner Carby, Hudson Carby, Elliot Carby, Jackson Carby and Cove Nies. She loved to travel and visit her extended family whenever possible. She always enjoyed playing various games and cards with friends and family alike. Florida wintering became a great comfort to her where she made many friends in the community of Vero Beach and Grace Baptist Church as well. Her favorite hobby was shopping at “GW boutique” and other thrift stores. Her love for clothes and fashion was great, always dressing with matching jewelry and shoes. She was quick to proudly share her Eastern Ky heritage with people growing up as a coal miner's daughter in the mountains. Her celebration of life will be held at Owen’s Funeral Home at 5317 Dixie Hwy, Louisville, KY - visitation Friday 3/18 from 3:00-8:00 and Saturday 3/19 10:00-12:00 with service beginning at noon. A short entombment service at Louisville Memorial Gardens West is at 1:00. Thank you to Kindred Home Health Care, Norton Brownsboro Hospital staff and Hosparus for your support. In lieu of flowers you may make a donation in her memory to crohnscolitisfoundation.org or christianapp.org.
