Ruth was a loving wife and mother. Her family was the most important thing in her life. She held many family get togethers through out the years and looked forward to seeing all her children and grandchildren. She played cards and games with her grandchildren whenever they would visit. She enjoyed going camping with her husband Mike and trips to Florida every winter. Her other hobbies were reading, bird watching, gardening and riding around the farm on her golf cart. She loved visiting with customers during sweet corn season.
