Ruth grew up on the near West Side of Cleveland, where she met her high school sweetheart, Tom. They then married and shared life together for 51 years. They enjoyed traveling the world together and were avid dog lovers. Ruth was a devoted Catholic and parishioner of St. Monica Church since its beginning. She was a dedicated nurse's aide and provided loving care to her patients. But her real purpose in life was her family whom she cherished, loved and supported endlessly. Ruth will be remembered for her gentle ways and ever-present, beautiful smile.
