At age 11 she went to Lawrence, KS to attend boarding school at Haskell Indian School. She returned home to McAlester, OK when her mother passed away to help raise her young siblings. In 1944 Ruby met and married John Maynor and began their family. Together they moved to MWC and raised their three children, Carolyn, Johnny and Rocky. The family began attending Soldier Creek Baptist Church where Ruby was a longtime member. After the sudden death of her husband , John she began working in the church's daycare caring for infants. She loved those babies and in her 15 years there made many long-time friends who were parents and co-workers. Ruby was preceded in death by her husband John Russell Maynor, daughter Carolyn and son-in-law Herbert Johnson, son Johnny Dale Maynor, brother Henry Wesley and sisters, Mamie, Josephine and Edith Wesley.
She loved to attend her children's activities and never missed a game or cheer event. Ruby loved to have family get togethers and enjoyed seeing that family grow. She is survived by her daughter Rhonda and husband Mark Speer of Sugarland, TX, adopted daughter Vicky Phillips of Choctaw, OK, niece Shirley Smith of Springfield, MO; grandchildren, Russell Harris, Blake Speer,, Shauna and Chris Masters, Marissa and James Mangrum, Brent and Beth Johnson, Miles and Rachel Maynor, 10 great-grandbabies, 4 great-great-grandbabies and numerous nieces, nephews and cousins.
With her family grown and spread out all over she returned to McAlester to be closer to her brother and sister. She there attended Zion Baptist Church and enjoyed her Choctaw music and revivals. A devoted Christian, she read her scriptures every night at home. After the death of her son, Johnny she moved into the McLoud Nursing Center where she resided only a couple years before peacefully passing in her sleep. Fortunate to have a long, love filled 92 years with her family and friends who will miss her but know she is suffering no more spending eternity with her Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ
