Ruby Casper Allred, 87, passed away on the early rainy morning of March 8, 2007, at the home of her daughter and son-in-law, Peg and Rex in Charleston, Utah. She was born on April 18, 1919, her mother’s 40th birthday, to Margret Price and James Moroni Casper in Charleston (then called Casperville).
She grew up on the family farm there on the Provo River. She married Rex E. Allred in Salt Lake City on March 27, 1937. They moved to Casperville, a block from her folks, where their five children were raised.
She is survived by her children: Peggy Ann (Rex) Sabey of Charleston; Ruby Elaine (Bill) Wallace, Collbran Colo.; Ruth (Mike) Crittenden, Kamas; and Doug (Karey) Allred, Center Creek, Utah; 14 grandchildren; 28 great-grandchildren and two more on the way; nine great-great-grandchildren; and two sisters-in-law: Bonnie and Grace Casper. She was preceded in death by her husband Rex; a daughter and son in-law, Iva Beth (Harold K.) Kinsey; her parents; and nine brothers and sisters.
Ruby worked at the Homestead Resort in Midway and the Aloma Motel in Heber City, but was more content to be a stay at home mom who enjoyed cooking, baking, and caring for her home and yard. She was very proud of her "south" flowerbed. She was a devoted mother and beloved grandmother. Her final request was to have one last look at Mt. Timpanogos.
Funeral services will be held on Monday, March 12, 2007, at 1 p.m. at the Charleston Deer Creek Ward Chapel, 3423 S. 3500 W. A viewing will be held one hour prior to the service at the church. Burial will be in the Charleston Cemetery.
We love you, and will miss you more than we can say.
