Ruby L. Weir (Correll)

November 26, 1943 — July 7, 2022

Peru, Indiana

Ruby L. Weir (Correll), 78, Peru, passed away on Thursday, July 7, 2022, at her home surrounded by her family.

Born November 26, 1943, in Grand Junction, Colorado, she was the daughter of Charles Murray Weir and the former Myrtle Mae Willoughby.  Ruby moved to Peru in 1956 with her mother and loving stepdad, David Huffman.  She had attended Peru High School and Independent Christian Fellowship Church.

In 1960, she married John E. Correll, and together they had three children.  She retired after thirty-six years from Essex Wire/United Technologies, in Peru.  For several years, she worked at the Village Market at the corner of Washington and Chili Ave.   Ruby enjoyed gardening and could always be found in her yard among all her beautiful flowers and plants that she loved.  She often said her work in her yard was her therapy, so she didn’t have to pay a shrink! She enjoyed collecting owls and feeding the birds around her home.

Survivors include her children, John Michael (Elizabeth) Correll, Indianapolis; Charles Orie (Holly) Correll, Peru; Angela Lee Correll (Thomas), Peru; and Barry Berglan, Peru; granddaughters, Kristina Gilleland, Johnna (Zach) Landwehr, and Sierra (Tommy) Carlson; several great-grandchildren; sisters, Violet (Dale) Haanpaa, Illinois; and Helen Norris, Tennessee; and her loving baby brother whom she adored, John (Debra) Huffman, Peru; many nieces and nephews, a special life-long friend, Marilyn Saylor, and a special neighbor, Kay Garner.

She was preceded in death by her parents; Daddy Huffman; sister, Ruthia Darlene Robertson; brother-in-law, Chuck Norris, and former husbands, John E. Correll and Merv Berglan.

A private family service will be held at a later date.

McClain Funeral Home, Denver, Indiana, has been entrusted with arrangements.  Condolences may be sent online at
