Ruth took care of the elderly in her community. Not only did she provide food and housekeeping to the shut-in, she also provided them with her companionship. Her community service continued until her health began to fail.

She was married to Mosely Clayborn Gaines, Sr. From this marriage were four (4) children: Matthew D., Dr. Lelia T., and Mosely C. Gaines Jr.; and Marlene G. Stringfellow.
