Ruby Pearce Efros, 95, passed away peacefully in her home in Phoenix on December 8, 2019. She was born October 9, 1924, in Taylor, Arizona, to James William Pearce and Gladys Viola Anderson. She married her lifelong companion, Alan Efros, on November 25, 1950, who preceded her in death in 2016.

After graduating from Mesa High School at age 16, she completed her studies at Lamson Business College in Phoenix, followed by a successful career as a supervisor at Mountain States Telephone until retiring early to raise her three boys. She lived a life of service which extended beyond her family and into her church and community ranging from leadership roles in the YMCA Sagamore Club, Cub Scouts, PTA, and working as a volunteer for election polling. She and Alan served three church service missions for The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

She was known for her warm smile, cheerful personality, and impeccable organization skills. She will be remembered as a brutal competitor against her grandchildren in any game. She loved music, gardening, learning about new things, discovering new places through travel, reading scripture and living her religion. She enjoyed family history, eating popcorn, and conversation about anything, but especially her family and politics. Almost everyone close to her has fallen victim to one of her famous jalapeno cheese balls.

She is survived by three sons Randy (Sue), David (Jackie), and Mark (Kally) and her brother Melvin (Toni). She is the proud grandmother of Michelle (Ian), Andrea (Andrew), Jeff (Misty), Ben, Ryan (Rachel), Daniel (Carly), Angela, Nicole (Jerimiah), Trevor (Haylie), Chandler (Keely), Riley and Rachel, ten great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews.

Services will be held on Monday, December 16, 2019 at The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, Osborn Ward 3102 N. 18th Ave Phoenix, AZ. A viewing will begin at 9am with the funeral service to begin at 10am. Interment will follow at Greenwood Memory Lawn Memorial Park. Services being arranged through A.L.
