Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. Proverbs 31:10 KJV Granny said "the sky is so blue that it hurts your eyes and there is not a leaf movin." “Granny” Ruby Nidiffer, age 98, of Carter County, Tennessee passed away peacefully with a smile on her face to be with her Lord forever on Thursday, August 26, 2021 at her residence. Ruby was born in Hampton, Tennessee to the late Ethel O. Campbell. In addition to her parents, Ruby was also preceded in death by her husband, Melvin G. Nidiffer; an infant daughter; two brothers, Howard McGinnis and Billy Joe Campbell; a daughter-in-law, Carol Nidiffer; and her beloved dogs, Bandit and Lucy. Ruby was a very outgoing lady who never met a stranger. She was a dedicated farm wife and had a deep love and respect for the word of God. She was known for her hard work ethic, loving her lord and her green thumb for planting and growing vegetables and flowers. Ruby raised her children to be a tight knit, loving family and was the oldest member of Caldwell Springs Baptist Church, where she worshipped regularly until her health prevented it. You could find Ruby in her kitchen, cooking for her family and friends or sitting on the porch passing the time with whomever came to visit. Those left to cherish Ruby’s sweet memories include her sons, Mike Nidiffer and wife Debbie, Gregg Nidiffer and her “other boy” Johnny Bennett; her grandchildren, Michael Nidiffer and wife Nikki, Seidena Malone, Alex Renfro and wife Laura, Christy Burrough and husband Steve, Jonathan Renfro and wife Megan, Traci Ward and husband Jason and Keith Bowers and wife Patty; her great grandchildren, Haley, Collin, Jackson, Kayson, Bracken, Everly and Addison; several other nieces, nephews, special family members, friends and neighbors also survive.
