She retired from Ford Motor Company after 23 years of service. After retirement, Ruth and her late husband, Walter, moved to their cabin in Gladwin (Grass Lake) with their beloved poodle, Tinkerbell. Ruth will be remembered for baking pies for Grass Lake bingo and family gatherings, her homemade pumpkin bread given out to her friends at the Brook, her title as #1 Potato Peeler, and her ever-present smile. She was baptized and confirmed at the church she was born next to, Trinity Lutheran Church of Riga, Michigan. Ruth was also a long time member of St. Paul Lutheran Church of Blissfield, Michigan.
