The Guest Book is expired.
July 30, 1922 - October 29, 2012
On October 29, 2012, our beloved mother, Ruby, continued her journey in our Heavenly Father's plan for His children. She was at home in Nampa, Idaho, surrounded by her loving family and her four-legged friend Tyson was laying at her side. Ruby was born July 30, 1922, in Rose, Idaho, to William and Merilda Humphries. One of eleven children, she was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and she was baptized on August 2, 1930. She served in the Primary, Relief Society, Sunday School, Mutual, and was a Den Mother in Cub Scouts. Temple work was a touchstone in her life.
On June 9, 1939, she married Arthur Glen Montague in Rigby, Idaho. Their marriage was later solemnized December 15, 1988 in the Idaho Falls LDS Temple. For nearly 60 years they made their home in Idaho Falls. Ruby is survived by three children, Robert Glen Montague of Burley, Idaho, Linda Ireland of Nampa, and Terry Lynn Montague of Nampa, Idaho, and thirteen grandchildren, twenty great grandchildren, and three great-great grandchildren. Ruby is also survived by five brothers, Dean, Len, Jess, Jerry, and Ronald Humphries and three sisters, Bertha Baxter, Leah Hill, and Marvel Yates. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; and one sister, Ruth Ciesieliske, and one brother, Deloy Humphries.
Mom loved to be out in her flower gardens and her yard. She was a voracious reader, loved Hawaiian music, crossword puzzles, played the piano, enjoyed sunrises and sunsets, and treasured her time with family and her constant shadow, her dog Tyson. Mom was a gentle and sweet spirit who believed one of God's best gifts was that of making friends. A gift that came easily and often to her.
