It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Billie Ruth Brown Wade, beloved mother, grandmother, and member of the community. Billie was born on February 13, 1933, to Clarence and Annie Ruth Brisby Brown. On June 27, 2024, she left this world to join her husband, Tommy Wade, her daughter, Cindy Howard, her brother, Buddy Brown, her sister, Marjorie Wakefield, and her parents in eternal peace.

Billie Ruth will be remembered for her unwavering love for her family, her dedication to her faith as a member of First United Methodist Church, and her passion for playing Bridge. She had a green thumb and found joy in “digging in the dirt” to tend to her beloved flowers. Together with her husband, she enjoyed hunting for antiques for their antique booth, creating cherished memories that will live on in the hearts of those she leaves behind.

She is survived by her daughter, Lori Caldwell, and her grandchildren, Wade Caldwell and Tracy Kinison. Their love and memories of Billie Ruth will forever be cherished and celebrated.

A private graveside service will be planned at a later date. Bills-McGaugh & Hamilton Funeral Home & Crematory is honored to assist the family with the arrangements. Condolences may be extended online at
