Ruby was born to Fritz and Ellen (Cloud) Steiner in Cheney, Wash. on May 7, 1919. She grew up in Cheney, where she graduated from high school.
She came to New Pine Creek in June 1941 and married Milton Hammersly on Christmas day in 1941 and he preceded her in death in 1984.
She made her home in New Pine Creek until she could no longer drive to Lakeview due to her poor eyesight.
At the time of her retirement, she had worked as a legal secretary for many years for Ted Conn‚Äôs law office.
Ruby’s favorite pastime was reminiscing and cluing anyone willing to listen, in on the history of New Pine Creek and surrounding areas. She loved this area and thoroughly enjoyed talking about it.
Ruby is survived by a very large extended family.
At Ruby’s request no public services will be held. She will be inurned in the New Pine Creek Cemetery on the grave of her grandfather, John Calvin Cloud.
Memorial contributions may be made to a charity of the donor’s choice.
