Ruth was an amazing woman with enormous spunk & personality! She was the ‘luckiest” gambler and was always ready to play poker, and not just a ‘friendly’ game, you better have brought your money and be ready to hand it over! The beloved mother & grandmother was also an amazing cook and seamstress.

She is survived by her siblings, Henrietta “Hank” Montoya, Melton Vasquez, and Belle Martinez; her children, Patty Summers, Benita Ohler, John D. Leyba, Christina Stephan.
