Ruby Lawson Vaughan England, 90, of Dublin, VA passed away on Sunday, October 13, 2019. Born September 20, 1929 in Patrick County, VA, she was the daughter of the late Buren and Dissie Bowers Lawson. Everyone fondly knew her as Miss Ruby. She greeted all with her beautiful smile, big hugs and contagious loving personality.

Ruby was preceded in death by her first husband, Robert L. Vaughan and infant daughter, Patricia. Also, her second husband, Eugene England. Ruby lost her brother, Carl Buren Lawson during the Korean War.
