Ruth was an active golfer and bowler as long as her health permitted and a long-time member of Crestview Country Club. She loved playing bridge and other card games and always enjoyed the spirit of competition. Ruth was fortunate to have led such a full life, enjoying her family and friends. She and her beloved husband John, with whom she shared 65 years of marriage, enjoyed travel together in the United States, the European continent, United Kingdom and on Caribbean cruises. Ruth gave so much to so many. She was the center of a strong family and family life.
