Ruby Lee Strong, 96, passed away on Thursday, March 5, 2020. Born in Dallas, TX on August 14, 1923, she was the daughter of the late Royal Arthur Strong and Ruby Lee Wickline Strong. She was preceded in death by her husband of 71 years, Billy Strong and her infant son, Raymond Lee. She has lived in Carrollton since 2006.

Ruby and Billy met when she was just a freshman in college. They married soon after, and their marriage grew during the times of WW2 and the Korean War. They lived in many locations in the United States; as well as, Japan, where Robert was born, and Pairs, France, where Carol was born. As a Daughter of the American Revolution, Ruby was fascinated by history and loved visiting historic courthouses, especially those across Texas. She loved the outdoors and was fascinated by all things natural. She will always be remembered fondly for her delight in the simple things, such as, a perfectly ripe persimmon and no pet could be better than a pug.

She leaves behind her sons, Billy Gene Strong and Robert Arthur Strong and their wives, her daughter, Carol Weidman and her husband; six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

She will be joining Billy at the Albert G. Horton Jr. Memorial Veterans Cemetery. Billy and Ruby specifically reserved a place at the back, where she can watch the birds. Condolences may be registered at

She was such an amazing grandmother. She spoilEd us, she loved us, she laughed with us and she taught us. We had so many good memories together. I’m so glad she got to live to know I finally found my true love in my wife but I really wish they would have been able to meet in person. They would have really loved each other.

Very well said to honor such a lovely woman. We loved her and enjoyed her dearly. I have much to aspire to in her.

Courtney Strong

I am fortunate to have met Mrs. Strong through her husband Mr. Strong, whom I met at the Smithfield YMCA. I met her when they invited me to have lunch, and again when my husband and I met them for dinner. What a wonderful couple and family. Carol and Wally, I'm sorry for your loss. Take Care and God Bless.
