Ruby J. (Cathcart) Swyers

Ruby J. Swyers, 90, of Radcliff, KY passed away peacefully on Thursday, December 14, 2023, in Brandenburg, Kentucky. Born on Thursday, June 29, 1933, in Oakridge, Pennsylvania, Ruby's spirited nature and warm heart touched the lives of everyone she encountered.

She was preceded in death by her beloved husband, Ted Swyers; her daughter, Nancy Casey; and her grandson, Dale Powers. 

She leaves behind her daughter, Lisa Eldredge and her husband, Bryan; her son-in-law, Mark Casey; her grandchildren, Michael Powers and his wife, Kim, Cody Powers, Chelsea Bragg and her husband, Kiel, and Olivia Powell and her husband, Ryan. Ruby was also the proud great-grandmother to Ashley Powers, Bailee Bragg, Liam Bragg, Maisie Bragg, and Madison Powers. Her sister, Jeanne Storey, her dear friend, Anna Hoop, and a multitude of nieces and nephews will also hold Ruby's memory dear.

Mrs. Swyers was a member of Radcliff Presbyterian Church. Ruby’s professional life was dedicated to nurturing young minds, as she worked in childcare for many years. Among Ruby's many interests, quilting stood out as a particular passion. The quilts she crafted were not only beautiful works of art but also symbols of the love and care she invested in everything she did. However, Ruby's greatest joy was undoubtedly her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Each moment spent with them was precious to her, and she relished the opportunity to be a part of their lives, sharing stories, laughter, and wisdom.
