Written by: Bessy LaVerne Kirkham Fillerup, daughter of George and Sarah Russon Kirkham March 21, 1971.  Bessie wrote a short sketch of each of George Kirkham's children which I will include over time.

Ruby, seventh daughter of George and Mary Russon Kirkham was born August 19, 1897, Lehi, Utah. Ruby was baptized by her father August 19, 1905 at Saratoga Springs. Her childhood and youth was spent entirely in Lehi, attending elementary schools, high school and enjoying her attendance at Church. She had a beautiful singing voice and along with her many friends was a member of the Ward and Stake Choirs. Ruby played trombone in the Lehi High School Ladies Band. Ruby was loved by all, a very pleasant disposition, sociable, happy and helpful to all her friends, brothers and sisters.

After her High School days, Ruby was employed at the People’s Co-op., Lehi, Utah, and for many years was a successful saleslady there. She then moved to Salt Lake City and was employed at Montgomery Ward’s large store where she was made head Saleslady.

At this time, 1921, she married Blaine Moody Pack, November 14, 1921 and lived in Salt Lake City. Her children, son Blaine Willard was born 22 April 1922 in Lehi, Utah and daughter Genele was born July 7, 1924 in Salt Lake City, Utah.

She resided in Salt Lake City until her death which occurred October 31, 1960.
