Ruth was born in Milwaukee and attended St. Cyril Methodius Elementary where she learned Polish as a second language. She graduated from Pulaski High School. She met her husband, Maurice, at Allis-Chalmers where she worked as a secretary and he a draftsman. They went on their first date on Sweetest Day and saw the movie Above Suspicion, sparking her life-long love of film. Together with their two children, they moved to California for a brief time where Ruth attended Marymount College in Palos Verdes studying tailoring. After moving back to Milwaukee, Ruth participated in the Greendale Woman’s Club as the secretary treasurer. She volunteered at the Milwaukee Symphony Orchestra and adored classical music. Ruth was a volunteer for Meals on Wheels and a devout Catholic. She cheered on the Brewers along with the UW-Madison and Notre Dame teams whenever she got the chance.
