She married her husband of 37 years, Jap Murphey on April 4, 1938. Ruby was a loving mother, sister, and Nanaw who will be dearly missed.

Mom was the Matriarch that holds our extended family together. She was a kind a gentle person with an honest nature. She loved her GOD, her family and her garden. She was an amazing cook- you never left her table hungry! She worked for years as a homemaker and lovingly cared for her husband and mother-in-law until they died. She was a wonderful Family Historian- passing down stories from the family's early years. Mom, we will miss you until we see you again.
