Obituary for Ruthie Mays York

Ruthie Mays York of Madison Heights, born February 6, 1968, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, May 16, 2019, after a long battle with Pancreatic Cancer.

Ruthie is survived by her husband of 32 years, Colby York, III; children, Christina York, Amy York, Colby York, IV; her grandchildren, Ayden Moore, Ava Moore, Kairi Robinson, and Avern Moore; one sister, Teresa Maddox (Don); and one brother, Carl Mays. Ruthie was the daughter of the late Theodore and Ruth Mays of Amherst.


Ruthie loved Jesus and was a devoted member of her special church, Corner Stone Baptist, who loved and prayed for her through her illness. She also was devoted to her family and loved spending time with them eating and celebrating family events. She will always be remembered for her unconditional love for her children and grandchildren and willingness to sacrifice and serve others. She loved her dog, Layla; Hallmark movies; homemade ice cream; and anything that had to do with church and family.


The family would like to thank all the staff, especially the nurses, at Alan B. Pearson Cancer Center for their love and support during her treatments. Ruthie especially was thankful for all the love and prayers she received from her church, family, and friends.


A celebration of her life will be held on Monday, May 20, 2019, at Corner Stone Baptist Church, in Naola, VA, at 2:00pm. Family will receive friends at 1:00pm before the service.

In Lieu Flowers, the family asks that you consider donating to the youth ministry at Corner Stone Baptist Church.
