Ruby Moore Todd Rigney Obituary

Ruby Moore Todd Rigney had her long awaited heavenly reunion on Wednesday, December 27, 2023, surrounded by her family singing songs of celebration. Born on Wednesday, October 31, 1934, Ruby was the youngest child of the late Allene and Paul Moore. She joined siblings Roscoe Moore, Dallas Moore, Virginia Carpenter, Eunice Pennington, Renetta Pryor, and Rosetta Phelps. Ruby was the last living member of her generation.

Ruby married Robert Todd on Saturday, April 15, 1950. Together, they had three sons; Mark (Patrice) Todd, Robert “Robbie” (Tonya) Todd II, and Paul (Bonnie) Todd. Robert died in 1968 and Ruby continued raising her boys who became devoted Christians, husbands, fathers, and businessmen, and the thing she was most proud of in her life.

She found love again when she married Leo Rigney on Saturday, July 22, 1978, and gained a step-daughter, Barbara (Roy) Guinn. After 35 beautiful years together, Leo passed away in 2014. Since Leo’s passing, Ruby filled her time with quilting, and she loved giving her quilts as gifts to her family.

Even after losing both her husbands, Ruby’s greatest heartbreak was the death of her son, Robbie, in 2020. Through that loss, her faith was unshakeable but longing for her heavenly home grew each day.

Anyone who knew Ruby knew that her relationship with the Lord was the most important thing to her. She faithfully served God for the majority of her life and never missed an opportunity to share her faith with others. She was the oldest living member of Waynesburg Pentecostal Church, where she served for over 50 years. Over the years, Ruby served as church clerk, sang in the choir, taught Sunday school, and was still cleaning and decorating at age 85. Her presence there will be deeply missed, and her impact will last for generations.

Along with her legacy of steadfast faith and strong work ethic, Ruby leaves behind 8 grandchildren; Jamie Todd, Jeremy Todd, Clint Bellinger, Leann Hines, Erica Miller, Caleb Todd, Nathan Todd, and Shilah Mahon. She is also survived by 16 great grandchildren, 3 step-granddaughters, 5 step-great-grandchildren, 2 step-great-great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Visitations will be at Waynesburg Pentecostal Church on Saturday, December 30, 2023, from 5-8PM, and on Sunday, December 31, 2023, from 12-2PM.
