Ruby was born in Missouri. Her parents were Grant (Ulysses) Conway (1865-1930) and Aura Willoughby (1872-1907). Her siblings were Cora May Conway (1901-1963) and Ella Eva Conway (1905-1982). In 1907, Ruby's mother passed away.

Her father remarried to Emma Stucki. Ruby's half siblings from that marriage were John Stu Conway (1911-1984) and Grant E. Conway (1913-1976).

About 1915, her father, Grant and her uncle, John D. Conway relocated their families from Missouri to Yamhill County in Oregon's Willamette Valley.

In 1918, Ruby met and married Wayne Chase of Redmond. Her sister Cora was also listed as a resident of the couple's Deschutes County household in early 1920.

To Ruby and Wayne five daughters were born: Ellen Margaret Chase Roberts (1920-1990), Winifred May Chase Buckner (1921-1992), Frances M. Chase Burgess (1923-1998), Doris Marian Chase Gregg (1929-2000), and Aura Lee Chase Helmholtz (1932-1992).

In August of 1930, Ruby's father and stepmother passed away, one day apart, leaving her youngest brothers, John S. and Grant E., who were still living at home, orphaned.

Ruby passed away in 1979, four years after the death of her husband Wayne. They are buried together in Redmond Memorial Cemetery. Their daughters now rest there too.
