Pennsylvania, USA
Death: Jan. 28, 1990

Ruth Buchanan Cain was born to Pearl (Webster) and John Francis Buchanan in Enterprise, Mercer County, PA. She was their only child. She died in Long Beach, CA after relocating to Long Beach where her only living daughter resided.

All throughout her life she was known for her beautiful singing voice and, as a young girl, sang in the Methodist Church Choir in Butler, PA. Her family moved to Butler, PA in her teen years where she completed 11 years of schooling and met and married Horace Levi Cain in 1918.

Her talents were of being a great cook and baker of pies and cakes and playing the piano. She was very pretty, and as a young girl stood 5' 7 1/2" with platium blond hair. She was once asked to be a model for Troutman Department Store in Butler, but her parents would not allow it. She was very devoted to the Methodist Church of Sewickley, PA, and was a good mother to her children.

She died at the age of 89 of complications after an exploratory operation.
