Ruby Jewel Murray, 71, died July 9, 2020. There are no services planned at this time. Strode Funeral Home and Cremation is in charge of arrangements.

On April 17, 1949, a gift of a baby girl was born to Clara Mae (Morton) Bomesberger, mother and Marion Charles Bomesberger, father, in Oklahoma, City. A little Cherokee baby girl, light hair, dark eyes, they named her, Ruby Jewel Bomesberger. The youngest of 14 children, she would remain the baby girl always. Her brothers: Charles, James, Johnny, Tommy and Donald, her sisters: Eva Friar, Freda Mae Linzie, Bobbie, Dorothy, Dace Marie, Clara Girl, Mary, Melissa Dora (Dodie), Patricia Ann and Betty Joe would all watch her grow up with gifts starting as early as 3 years old. Ruby Jewel would help people with a glimpse into the future, possibilities, freely giving hope…” Find their tears, set them free and have room for their joy.” (Ruby)

Ruby Jewel would attend grade school in Southside Oklahoma City, graduate high school in Pryor, Oklahoma at Whitaker making lifelong friends, studying cosmetology growing up with little but plenty of love for all. She would then attend Business school in Oklahoma City and Langston University finding her path. Ruby began working as a waitress and bartender. She would work in market research for ten years in the Dallas area. She came to Oklahoma and worked for the State of Oklahoma for a while. She was a massage therapist for over twenty years, in Tulsa and surrounding area. Her passion was mediation and energy therapy, which she taught for over 40 years. She was much more than a worker, an artist, singer, corn doll maker, someone who lite up a room. It was your fault if you left Ruby’s home hungry for food or kind words. Ruby Jewel would become a licensed minister in the state of Oklahoma, performing marriages and ceremonies.

It is fitting that this story of Ruby’s life is started today as the rain drops fall like angel tears, that will fall by the people that Ruby has touched in her 71 years. The people that she walked with here have in turned touched many people too. Ruby Jewel celebrated two birthdays. The day Creator gave her to her parents in 1949 and the day she stopped drinking in 1997. On April 22, 2020 she celebrated 23 years of sobriety with friends who also wanted to become sober or remain sober.

The Cherokee have no words for Goodbye, only, “donadagohvi” until our eyes meet again. Her walk with Creator and singing with her family that is already with Creator is now. Ruby Jewel began her new walk on July 9, 2020. We are the ones left behind. Frank J. Murray, her gentle Ioving husband of over 25 years is home in Perkins, OK missing Ruby Jewel, two souls that were one. They shared everything together, laughter and tears.

She is survived by her loving husband Franklin J. Murray, of the home; sister-in-law Donna Reichenbach Murray and husband Joe, Port St Joe FL; adopted brother Chris McCutchen, Perkins OK; Stepson Aaron J. Murray, Sarasota FL, Stepdaughter Heather and Husband Marc Scheuer, Hampton NJ; Stepdaughter Roxanne and Husband Jacob Quinney, Grandchildren: Samantha, Tommy and Sember Scheuer, Milo Shadler; Leland and Sylvia Quinney, Dummerston, VT. Nieces and Nephews: Niece Melissa and Husband TOD Drake Oklahoma City, OK; Niece Delores Olson Midland TX; Nephew Billy Lindsey Cedarville AR; Christy Tolison, OKC, OK; Nephew Johnny and wife Tammy Bomesberger, OKC, OK; Nephew Tony and wife Sandy Bomesberger OKC, OK; Rebecca Caputo and Mark Weekley, Broken Arrow, OK; Nephew John and wife Lisa Grove, Horsehead NY; Angela Pointer, Dallas TX; James Pointer Lawton OK;

Many friends that love and cherish her too.

To the family, my sincere condolences for your loss. Please find comfort in the knowledge that God promises to end all suffering. Before long, God will wipe out every tear from our eyes, and “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things (will) have passed away.”(Rev. 21:3,4). May this promise from God give you comfort now and a real hope for the future. My deepest sympathy.

Dear sweet Ruby, you were a dear sister-in-law, always kind, giving and encouraging me with your words and actions. We went through many happy and sad times together; we celebrated our lives and pulled each other up when needed. Ruby, you were resilient all your life, always had a smile and a kind word for friend or stranger, and always offered a helping hand to those in need. Dear Sister, you were kind and loving toward my Brother Frank, I can still see you two holding hands, always together, sharing your lives. We will miss you Ruby, your laugh, your songs, your stories, your hugs. Deepest sympathy to family, friends and my Brother Frank.
Rest well my friend, love you.
