Ruth was born in Miami, Florida, and attended the University of Miami where she studied meteorology. She then went on work as a weather observer in Atlanta and Charleston. Ruth then moved to Denver, Colorado. There Ruth met and married her husband. Together they raised two children Julie and Eric. In retirement they moved to Estes Park, Colorado, where Ruth was very active in her church. She loved to write poetry. Two of her poems were published on greeting cards.
Ruth is survived by her two children, Julie Bays of Pueblo, Eric Blomberg of Fort Collins and three grandchildren, Heather Longway, Shelby Rossi, and Jeremiah Blomberg.
