Ruby Doris Clemens
Ruby Doris Clemens, 92, went to meet her Lord on January 1, 2018. She passed away at St. Alphonsus RMC due to complications following a brief illness.
She was born March 1, 1925 in Fay, Oklahoma, the second oldest child of Robert and Anna McAlister.
Ruby spent her childhood in Oklahoma and graduated from Fay High School.
She married Loren Counsil in 1942 and moved to Idaho. They had 2 children, Danny and Judy. Loren passed away in 1947 and Ruby remarried John Clemens, who later passed away in 1992.
Ruby worked for KGEM radio station, the Idaho State Police, and retired from the Idaho Department of Fish and Game.
She enjoyed playing basketball, golf, traveling to Arizona in the winters and spending time with her family and friends.
She was a very loving and kind soul and I don’t think she ever met a person she did not like.
She cherished her church, Ten Mile Christian Church, and her relationship with her Lord.
She enjoyed volunteering to help wherever she was needed.
Ruby is survived by her children, Danny Counsil; Judy Poirier (Chuck); her sister, Verla McFarland, her brother, Jerry McAlister; 5 grandchildren; 7 great-grandchildren; 3 great-great-grandchildren and numerous nephew and nieces.
Ruby is preceded in death by her husband, John Clemens; sister and brother-in-law, Arlene and Bill Thrasher; brother-in-law, Dick McFarland; parents, Bob and Anna McAlister and her grandson, Kenny.
At Ruby’s request, there will be a private graveside service and family and friends at Canyon Hill Cemetery in Caldwell.
