Ruth served in the Navy as a member of the WAVES in World War II in San Francisco. She graduated from Brigham Young University with a Bachelor's degree in music. Ruth started playing the piano at age five and was still playing a few days before her death. Music was one of her two greatest passions. She played the piano and organ for high school plays, community events, orchestras, church and funerals. One of her joys in life was to accompany musical numbers sang by her husband Don and other family members. Her second passion was dipping homemade chocolates to share with her friends and family each Christmas. She learned this art of chocolate dipping at the age of 13 from her dad while working at the "Bluebird" in Logan, Utah.

She was an active member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and served in many callings throughout her life. Ruth & Don served two full time missions to Fiji and New Zealand. They were both called to serve in the first Temple Presidency of the Vernal, Utah Temple. She culminated her temple service by serving as an ordinance worker and organist.
