Ruby Hazell Six Warren

NORMAN — Ruby Hazell Six Warren, 88, passed from this Earth Sunday, June 1, 2014, to be with her Lord and enter into the joy and rest of His presence.

She was born Nov. 14, 1925, in Oklahoma City, to Francis Ralph and Ruby Parilee (Rosser) Six.

Ruby grew up in Oklahoma City and Pawhuska and graduated from Pawhuska High School in 1943. She attended the University of Oklahoma where she met her future husband, James “Jim” D. Warren.

They married June 5, 1948, at McFarlin Memorial United Methodist Church, in Norman, and have loved and supported one another for over 65 years. Ruby moved with Jim to Camden, N.J., and Dallas, before moving back to Norman in 1955.

Her first loves were God, her husband and her family. She was truly a homemaker and her life's calling was to create a loving and nurturing environment for her family.

Ruby loved music and loved playing piano. She passed along her love of music to her seven children, attending many, many band and orchestra concerts from her children’s first elementary school programs to college performances.

She loved reading — everything from history to novels and theology — but perhaps nothing more than God’s word in the Bible. Her devotional time with God every morning was an example that will never be forgotten by her children.

A long-time member of First Baptist Church in Norman, Ruby served the God she loved by teaching Sunday Bible classes for years — for children, teenagers and adults. She had a heart for missions and missionaries and hosted numerous missionaries in the Warren home over the years. She was active in the Women's Missionary Union of First Baptist Church, including serving as president between 1977 and 1978.

Along with other members from First Baptist Church, she and Jim helped found Northeast Baptist Church in 1985, where she continued serving faithfully for many years. Her community involvement included participating in Norman Christian Women's Club, the OU Dames organization, and also serving as a county precinct voting registrar for several years.
