Ruth attended St. Henry High School, and retired from the Huffy Bicycle Plant, where she had worked for nearly 40 years. She was one of the last employees when the Celina factory closed.
Ruth grew up in a family of seven boys, and would often play ball with them on a Sunday afternoon. She also played on a women's fast pitch traveling softball team.
Ruth was a member of the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in Coldwater. She enjoyed jigsaw puzzles, and working on projects for her home.
