The earth lost one very classy lady on February 26, 2020. Ruby Talovich passed away at the age of 92. She was as independent as they come and lived her life self sufficiently in her own residence in Mesquite, Nev.
In her earlier years Ruby was a high school cheerleader, sang in the choir and even played softball.
Ruby married the love of her life, George Talovich, on June 1, 1927. Ruby and George traveled the Orient and lived in the Philippines for 8 years, but her home will always be the small quiet town of Thermopolis, Wyo.
Ruby spent many memorable summers camping in Allred Flat and other parts of Wyoming with her family and friends.
You could always find Ruby smiling in the kitchen. Cooking and canning were definitely a passion and a talented gift. One of her favorite meals was cooking Yugoslavian dinner for her husband on January 7. No one would ever turn down her fruit pizza!
She never missed her hair appointment and always left the house with her head held high looking like the true queen she was.
Ruby's classiness was perfectly balanced by her competitive side. When it came to family card games, dice and the occasional penny slots, Ruby was a fierce competitor. Her famous line, "Her comes the judge, here comes the judge" will live on for years.
One thing Ruby did love with all her heart was her family. She is survived by a wonderful daughter Debby McCoy, husband Steve McCoy, (Mesquite, Nev.), two terrific granddaughters, Misty McCoy Findley, husband Duane Findley, (Collierville, Tenn.) and Tory Jay Brady, husband Brian Brady, (West Pointe, Utah), her three great grandchildren, Dylan Brady, Dax Brady, and Marlee Findley and her two sisters, JoAnn Love, husband Arley Love, (Thermopolis, Wyo.) and Irene Johnson (Thermopolis, Wyo.).
Ruby had many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews who she kept in close contact with and loved dearly.
She is joining her husband George Talovich, son Steve Talovich and parents Alva and Amelia Johnson and brother Vernie Johnson.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date.
