Ruby Liljenquist Raybould  
Ruby Liljenquist Raybould 1912 ~ 2004  Ruby Liljenquist Raybould, 92, beloved mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, passed away August 15, 2004, at Utah Valley Regional Medical Center from complications of a fall.  She was born April 18, 1912, in Hyrum, Utah, to Otto Erastus Liljenquist and Ivy May Allen, the fifth of nine children. She grew up in Idaho and also spent many happy summers back in Hyrum with her extended family. A diligent worker all her life, she graduated in 1930 as valedictorian in the first class to have junior and senior years added for the diploma from Madison High School in Rexburg, Idaho. She worked several years to help support the family financially until her marriage to Verd W. Raybould on November 12, 1936, in the Logan LDS Temple. The couple lived in Idaho Falls, Salt Lake City, Dillon (Montana), Sugar City (Idaho), and Rexburg. Her husband was trained as a watchmaker and eventually became owner of D & R Jewelers in Rexburg. Ruby assisted him in that business and took it over when he died in 1968. After selling it in 1973, she stayed on as clerk and then manager for the new owner. Following the Teton Dam Flood in 1976, she moved to Provo where she resided until her death. Ruby was an active member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and loved her service in the past as a Primary teacher, choir member, and Relief Society visiting teacher. She served seven years in the Provo Temple. She was known as a wonderful homemaker and cook, and she especially enjoyed bringing family together for special occasions. She enjoyed trips to Europe, Hawaii, and the Caribbean and was always grateful for the people and places in her life. Those who knew Ruby would recall her as a caring friend and that she always presented herself in an attractive manner. Ruby is survived by two daughters, Janeil (W. Rolfe) Kerr of Provo and Kareen (Kenneth A.) Winder of Roosevelt, Utah and one son, Clayne V. Raybould of Provo; 10 grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren; one sister, Beatrice L. Hall of Rigby, Idaho, and two brothers, Vern J. Liljenquist of Rexburg, Idaho, and Dean A. Liljenquist of Sandy, and many nieces and nephews across four generations. Three brothers, two sisters, and a stillborn son preceded her in death. Funeral services will be held Thursday, August 19, 2004, at 11:00 a.m. in the Provo Utah Edgemont South Stake Center, 350 E. 2950 N., Provo. There will be a viewing for family and friends on Wed. from 6-8 p.m. at Berg Mortuary, 185 E. Center Street, Provo, and on Thurs. at the Stake Center from 10:00-10:45 a.m. prior to services. Dedication of the grave and interment will be in the Sugar City, Idaho Cemetery on Friday August 20, 2004 at 10:00 a.m.
