Vanishing America from the Daily Mail:

Tax-evading husband-shooting Ruby Garrett died aged 94 at Crest Nursing Home in Butte, Montana after leading a colourful life that involved two stints in jail.

She ran the Dumas Hotel brothel until 1982 when the town sheriff, Bob Butorovich, padlocked the doors for the last time while she was investigated for fraud. At its close the Dumas was America’s longest-running brothel.

If you find yourself in Butte, don’t forget to visit the Dumas Brothel Museum, just a short drive from Wall Drug in South Dakota.
