Ruby Lucille Reeves Clearman

MERIDIAN —     Services for Ruby Lucille Reeves Clearman will be held Sunday at 3 p.m. at Webb Chapel with Dwight Callens officiating. Burial will be in Magnolia Cemetery with James F. Webb Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.

    Ruby Lucille Reeves Clearman passed away on July 2, 2014 at the age of 101. Ruby was born May 15, 1913, and was a resident of Meridian until 2006 when she left to live with her daughter, Sylvia Hall in Vancleave, Miss. She was married for 67 years to Odell Clearman of Meridian, who preceded her in death in 2002.     Ruby was a devoted Christian woman and a member of Meridian Church of Christ. She was a homemaker and a woman of many talents. She loved gardening, cooking, painting, being a wife and mother, but her most accredited talents were her sewing skills and her ability to create beautiful pieces of ceramics. She belonged to the Ceramic Club of Bonita and enjoyed her Wednesday “ceramic day” for many, many years. Her ceramic and sewing creations adorn homes of hundreds of family and friends throughout the country. It was hard NOT to love Ruby Clearman. She was kind, loving, very funny, stern (when needed), patient, and a wonderful teacher of many things. Ruby was the perfect example of a Christian woman to all who knew her.

    She will be greatly missed, but most assuredly, she will be the first in line to

greet us when we see her in Glory!

    She is survived by a brother, Gene Reeves of Lawrenceville, Ga.; her one and only daughter, Sylvia Ann Clearman Hall of Vancleave; four grandchildren, Irving M. Hall of Magnolia, Mitzie R. Hall of Ocean Springs, Jeffrey C. Hall (Laurie Knost) of Meridian, and Lesley H. Brown (Stephen) of Niceville, FL; five great grandchildren, Dustin M. Hall (Laura Macrae), Kelly N. Hall, Maegan L. Drennan, Jordan L. Brown, and Stephen Davis Brown; Ruby also had the privilege of enjoying her great great granddaughter, Alexis Grace Hall for three years. The two of them had a special bond.

    Visitation will be Sunday from 2-3 p.m. at the funeral home.
