She was a 1945 graduate of Kokomo High School and retired in 1987 as a telephone operator with Indiana Bell Telephone Company after many years of service. Ruth was a member of the Morgantown Baptist Church and a former member of the Scott Lake Baptist Church in Lakewood, Fla. She enjoyed sewing and making clothes for her family and friends. Ruth also enjoyed bowling and playing the piano.
