In the early morning hours of November 17, Ruby Solmonson Lloyd gently slipped from this life to the next. She was born November 22, 1929.\n\nRuby, or as she often referred to herself as “Rusty’s Mom,” was born in Arcadia, Utah, the eldest of five children born to James LaVern and Aloise Larsen Solmonson. Raised on a farm in the unforgiving land in the basin, she worked alongside her brothers and sisters, Erv (Marilyn), Marie, Don (Alice) and Ila (Ed). She met her childhood sweetheart, Loren Lloyd at the tender age of 13 during the summer of ‘42 at a place that was known as Ravola in Arcadia, UT and their lifetime adventure began. They married in 1947, and in those sixty four years together Ruby and Loren nurtured a family with one spirited son, Rusty (Lynette); three grandchildren, Jaymi (Matt) Pasin, Eric (Amy), and Colby; and five great grandchildren, Makaylie, Ellie, Ledger, Tyton and Giada.\n\nRuby was a gentle soul that loved all animals especially her dogs. She was a proud woman, a true perfectionist and a class act. She always dressed to the nines and enjoyed dancing with her surviving husband Loren at the senior centers and socializing with her friend of sixty-five years, Delpha. She had a wonderful sense of humor and her laughter was contagious especially when she was telling a story or a joke. She loved her “knick-knacks” especially her variety of roosters and hummingbirds and was always searching for new treasures. She enjoyed her cabin in Schofield and camping with her friends Gene, Carol, Keith and Wanda. She loved spending time with her family and her family loved her; and they won’t remember any unkind words from her because there were none, but they will always remember her heart of gold.\n\nFuneral services will be Monday, November 21, 2011 at 12 Noon at Jenkins-Soffe Mortuary, 4760 So. State Street, where a viewing for family and friends will be held from 10-11:45 a.m. Interment: Holladay Memorial Park.
