On May 29th, 1971 she was united in marriage to Staff Sergeant Robert Helmberger in Mobridge. Following their marriage the couple resided in Minot, ND at the Minot Air Force Base. In 1976 they moved to Belle Fourche where they raised their daughter, Terri and son, James. Ruby worked part time at Clark’s Printing in Spearfish. Later she started with friendly home parties and used that income to start her gift shop at Mason’s Fifth Avenue in Belle Fourche. She retired in 2009 due to her health challenges.
