Ruth worked at Simone's Grocery Store, The Astatic Corporation and Sand's Grocery throughout her life. She was mainly a homemaker and loved it.

Ruth was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother. She enjoyed cooking, sewing, crafts, traveling and playing cards and shuffleboard. For many years, she and Harold "Lefty" traveled to Florida to their second home. Their beloved past time was spinning a pop bottle on a map to see where their next adventure would take them.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Harold D. "Lefty" Dean Jr.; her daughter, Kathy Ann Dean; her parents; and her siblings, Sam Simone, Norma Sass and Joseph Simone.
