Ruby Alice McElmurry, 92, of Libby, entered her Heavenly home on Sunday, April 23, 2023. She passed away peacefully at the Libby Care Center. Ruby was born in Chippewa Falls, Wisconsin on April 26,1930, to George and Luella Stipek. She was married to Roy Allen McElmurry, and they had 5 sons: Duane, Ed, Rich, Walter and Kenneth. Roy, Ruby, and the boys built their house in Libby. Ruby loved her home and after retiring from the mill, enjoyed running ‘Mac’s Cheese,’ which was a well known small business in Libby. When her husband died unexpectedly in January 1999, Ruby combatted the loneliness by pouring into her gardening, crocheting, playing cards, and spending time with family. It was no secret she loved her family dearly and made sure they always knew it.
Ruby is preceded in death by her father George; mother Luella; siblings Ila Mae, Wilda, Betty and Robert; husband Roy; sons Duane, Walt, and Ken; and great-grandchildren Dawsyn and McKenzye.
Ruby is survived by her sons Ed and Rich; 5 daughters-in-law; and many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Funeral services for Ruby were be held on Saturday, May 6, 2023, at the Schnackenberg Funeral Home in Libby, Montana.
