Obituary

Ruthann Holt Bailey, 77, of Swannanoa went to be with our Lord on Sunday, January 19, 2020.

Ruthann was born August 14, 1942 in Buncombe County to the late Hubert and Jesse Wagner Holt and was a resident of Swannanoa most of her life. She was a graduate of Owen High School and Blanton’s Business College. Throughout her professional career, Ruthann was a secretary at AVX Ceramics in Myrtle Beach, SC, UNCA and WCU with the longest tenure at Drexel Furniture Company and Nationwide Insurance Agency in Black Mountain, NC.

Ruthann began to play the piano and sing in church at a young age. She was a proud, loyal and active member of the Tabernacle United Methodist Church in Black Mountain where she served as the church pianist and choir director. She also attended the Faith Community Church in Black Mountain with her husband, Earl.

She is survived by her husband, Earl Bailey of Swannanoa; a son, Tommy Mooney and his wife, Jackie of Clyde, NC; a stepson, Glenn Bailey and wife, Amy of Palm Harbor, FL; a stepdaughter, Amanda Bailey Casey of Columbus, NC; along with two step grandsons, Craig and Jackson; and three step granddaughters, Jennifer, Mikyla and Delena.

Join us as we celebrate her life on Wednesday, January 22, 2020 at 2:00 pm in the chapel of Harwood Home for Funerals with Pastor Jerry Wicker and Reverend Lisa Beth White officiating.

I have known Ruth Ann ever since we were in grade school together. Graduated from Owen High with her. She was a sweet lady
and so sorry for the families loss. Heaven has another angel.

My Mom and I worked with Ruth Ann at Drexel. There was not a sweeter lady in this world than Ruth Ann. She always had a smile on her face and a song in her heart. We shared many happy times while working at Drexel. I remember you traveling to my wedding in Hickory , all the fun lunches we had . I will miss you dear friend. Until we meet again, I know heaven is a brighter place today.
