Throughout her life, Ruth worked several jobs, including working at the coal mine driving heavy equipment, residential painting, and on-location plumbing jobs, but the job she was the most proud of,  was the job of mom and grandma.  She wore that title with pride, her grandchildren and great grandchildren were the light of her life!
Ruth was also a woman of many artistic talents, she loved to cook for large family gatherings, sewing and quilting beautiful blankets for her family members, and creating pinatas and various crafts for the grandchildren and great grandchildren's parties.  Ruth also had a knack for carpentry and home improvement projects. 
Ruth was very family oriented, spending many days traveling with her mother all over Wyoming, delivering Amway and visiting relatives, and as her mother aged, she was able to provide care for her in her home for extended periods of time.
