A native of California, our loving sister was a graduate of Wheatland High School. She also attended UC CAL Northridge, receiving her Bachelors Degree in History, minor in Math. She had a passion for computers and also making Rosary's for charity. After graduating high school she entered the Franciscan Sisters of Assisi, in San Fernando, CA. There she became an educator, 30 years of teaching students of all ages was her greatest joy.

It was there she could be herself with family and friends, shopping, home cooked dinners, watching movies and family reunions filled her time. Sister Ruth was competitive in games at reunions and challenging her nephews at chess. Her family always gathered around her, no matter who or what the situation, our sister was the center of attention.
