Ruth Gingrich was born at the family homestead in Evendale, Pennsylvania on November 15, 1927. She attended Evendale grade school, a one room school, this was followed by Fayette High School in McAlisterville, graduating in 1944. She stayed home a year before going to Eastern Mennonite College in Harrisonburg, Virginia. Her studies were interrupted by her mother's untimely illness in 1947. Thereupon Ruth taught school at Belleville Mennonite School. She then returned to EMC to pursue her teaching degree. While at school she met her future husband, Richard Moyer. They were married in August 1950 at Lauvers Mennonite Church, her home church. They moved to Richard's home area in Danboro where Ruth taught school. Richard was licensed to lead a mission church in Lambertsville, New Jersey. During this period daughter Darlis and son Daniel were born to them. Shortly thereafter Richard accepted a call to pastor a small church in Crenshaw, Pennsylvania, sponsored by Locust Grove Mennonite Church in Belleville. Daughter Lynette, Ruth's third and last child was born. Ruth finished her college at Clarion State College acquiring her teaching degree. She taught first grade for many years at a public school in the area. She was active at their church, Crenshaw Community Church. Reading and journaling were a couple of her favorite things to do. She taught Sunday School and coordinated the Summer Bible School. She was active in the sewing circle. True to the Mennonite tradition Ruth was gifted in hospitality. She is remembered as one who deeply befriended those in her ministering community. Her life was affected by long-term health issues including diabetes.
