Ruth is the only daughter of Edward and Ella Steward Ahlm, sister of Edward Allen and John Arthur. She was the niece of TJ and Freda McNevin. She is listed in the January 1, 1920 census as an infant but her actual birth date was found in a list of births of family members written by Freda McNevin. Both Freda McNevin and Mini Ahlm verified that she had no middle name. Her family moved from Burley,Idaho to Jarbidge, Nevada and then to Lamar,Colorado to run a rootbeer stand. The family story is that Ruth was seven years old when she became ill after swimming. She developed pneumonia and died. After her death the stand failed and her family moved away leaving her in an unmarked grave. Her marker was added at a later date. A letter from the Fairmount Cemetery verifies she is buried there.
