She was born Feb. 27, 1925, in Powell to James and Margaret (Marion) Jones. While growing up the family moved many times following her father, who worked road construction. They finally settled in Penrose, where they farmed.

She began working at the Powell Nursing Home in 1956, and in 1977 she went into respiratory therapy. She also did home oxygen for several years. Ruby loved her job and enjoyed taking care of all the residents in the nursing home.

Ruby was a very talented woman. She loved doing many crafts and was always learning something new. She shared her handmade crafts and every friend and family member had at least one of her items.

She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents and a brother, Edward.
