Ruth (as she went by) was the oldest daughter of Philip C. Curley & Mildred Wurth Remare. She graduated from University of Pennsylvania with a BSN in nursing. She worked as a public health nurse in the Washington DC area. She met her future husband, Joseph Madeo Jr at the boarding house where they both lived. He moved out so that he could court Ruth. They married on Jan. 17, 1941 in Washington DC. They had 7 children together. Ruth was the glue that held the family together through the many moves that a career military spouse had to make. Ruth & Joe eventually settled in Bell Buckle, TN to farm together.

I have heard my late mother-in-law, (Ruth's sister) Diana tell many stories about growing up on a farm in Monkton, MD.
