Ruby LeVonne Golay, 79, went home to be with Jesus, January 14th 2022. She was born in Des Moines, IA on January 16th, 1942. Ruby enjoyed spending time with family & friends and had a special love for her children, grandchildren, and children with fur, big eyes, & whiskers.
She worked at the post office in Des Moines until her retirement. She touched all whom knew her with her smart witty sense of humor & selflessness.
Ruby was committed and loved to research genealogy; she wrote and published a book on her family tree – a very thorough text titled David Golay: His Ancestors & Descendants by Ruby Golay-Stover.
She will be deeply missed by all whom had the pleasure to have known her. Ruby was preceded in death by her father Robert Golay; mother Lorraine Golay; brothers David, Jerry & Daryl Golay; sisters Sandy & Karen; son David Gordon; daughter Pamela Merino; grandchildren Zachery & Rachel Dolan; and grandson Chad Leto.
She loved Jesus with all her heart and knew and trusted we will all reunite again at a later date through His sacrifice and divine love for us!
Pawprints Left By You
You no longer greet me,
As I walk through the door.
You’re not there to make me smile,
To make me laugh anymore.
Life seems quiet without you.
You were far more than a pet.
You were a family member, a friend,
a loving soul I’ll never forget.
It will take time to heal –
For the silence to go away.
I still listen for you.
And miss you every day.
You were such a great companion.
Constant, loyal & true.
My heart will always wear,
the pawprints left by you.
