Ruby Nell Kelly Kramer Bigler

February 22, 1924 — June 2, 2022

Ruby Nell Kelly Kramer Bigler was born in Madison County as the fifth of six children to Elmer and Viola Kelly on February 22, 1924. She passed into her Heavenly Home on June 2, 2022 at the age of 98.

Ruby Nell was a dedicated wife, mother, and homemaker who was very involved with her community, her church, and her children. An avid gardener, she had a “green thumb” even into her 90’s. She was an excellent artist and cook, and during her lifetime served as a teacher in a one-room schoolhouse, Sunday School teacher, hospital aide, room mother, Cub Scout and Girl Scout leader, and owned her own ceramics shop. With her first husband, Richard, she traveled the nation as a military wife and, in 1964, finally got to move back to her hometown of Huntsville.

She is predeceased by her parents; her siblings Helen Crumrine, Gladys Keefer, Raymond Ned Kelley, Mildred Maine, and Elmer “Sonny” Kelley; her first husband, Richard A. Kramer Jr.; son Ross Kramer; and second husband Hugh Bigler. She is survived by her sons Richard Douglas Kramer (Manette) and Roland Kelly Kramer (Pamela), and her daughter Rebecca Susan Kramer Steinhauser (David), six grandchildren (Drew Kramer, Chris Kramer, Ryan Kramer, Jason Steinhauser, Carly Verstegen, and Ashley Steinhauser), twelve great-grandchildren, and several nieces and nephews.
