MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Miss Ruby Wilson, the Queen of Beale Street, has passed away.

According to the singer’s Facebook page, she passed away at 1:10 p.m.

Funeral announcements will be made available at a later date.

Wilson’s health had taken a turn in the last few years.

She had a stroke in 2009, but recovered and was able to take to the stage at B.B. King’s on Beale Street.

“Well, other than our namesake, B.B. King, I don’t think there is anyone more instrumental in the redevelopment of Beale Street than Ruby Wilson,” said a spokesperson with the restaurant.

Wilson was a respected blues singer, a difference maker, but sassy with a big heart.
