Ruth was born in Chicago, Illinois, the oldest of ten children. For a time, she worked at the Western Electric Company at the Hawthorne Works in Cicero, Illinois. There she met her future husband, Arthur Andersen, and they were married on July 18, 1939. Due to his patriotism, and despite his age of 42, Arthur enlisted in the US Navy after the outbreak of World War 2. At some point, Ruth and Arthur purchased the home of her widowed mother and they all lived together throughout her mother's lifetime. Eventually, they purchased a home on North Maple Avenue in Elmhurst. Although they were not blessed with children, Ruth and Arthur were beloved aunts and uncles to their many nieces and nephews. Ruth enjoyed cooking and baking and she excelled at both. Although she was the oldest, she outlived all but one of her nine siblings.
