The first years of her life were passed near Clarinda. She, with her parents, moved to the present home near Diagonal in 1911.

Ruth attended the country school until 1922 when she entered the Diagonal high school, leaving at the beginning of the second year on account of failing health.

Ruth was an industrious girl, both socially and in active life. She was much for home life and always very considerate of others and during her illness was unusually patient and endured much pain uncomplainingly.

Her brother, Victor, preceded her in death February 16, 1918, and her father, June 9th, 1923.
