Ruby LeVonne Golay

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.

~Ruby Golay
