Ruth Elaine was the daughter of John W. and Helen (Lantzky) Yates. She was a gifted artist who enjoyed working in assorted media throughout her lifetime. Along with her husband, Wayne C., Ruth Ketchum was an active participant at Ingleside Methodist Church in Chicago, Broadway United Methodist Church in Phoenix, and Catalina United Methodist Church in Tucson.

Ruth was affected with tuberculosis shortly after her marriage. A family move to Arizona provided the climate change that allowed Ruth to recover from the disease.

Ruth and her husband parented a daughter, Virginia Ruth and a son, Donald Wayne.
