TRUE LOVE STORY Wayne and Ruth would tell the story of how they met and married, followed by their journey from Indiana to California in 1950. Wayne was 20, Ruth was 16 and living with her eldest sister, Jerry (Sis). Wayne’s aunt, Helen and Ruth’s sister Sis were best friends and loved to play cards. One night during one of their card games, Wayne & Ruth crossed paths both catching the eyes of the other and both thinking the other was uninterested. It was shortly after that card game they crossed paths again only this time Wayne got up the nerve to ask Ruth out on a date. They spent their first date at the movies, were married a month later and spent every day of their life together until Wayne’s passing. Ruth lost a part of her heart that day. Although her family surrounded her with love her heart never mended after Wayne passed. RUTH Beautiful inside and out, sweet, kind, intelligent, caring, giving, loving, always finding the best in everyone and 100% gullible with a great sense of humor. What a lot of people don’t know about Ruth is that when she left Indiana in 1950, she left behind her heart, mother, father and six siblings, a family she loved dearly and missed everyday of her life. Visits from her Indy family were always bittersweet, as happy as she was when they arrived, she was overwhelmed with sadness when they left. No worries though, Wayne’s family came to her rescue, they embraced her with so much love, respect and support and as she would say, she couldn’t ask for a better family. Early on, Ruth worked at the school her children attended so she could keep an eye on them, she was loved by all the kids in the school. As her children grew older, Ruth worked for American Licorice Candy Company in Union City, CA. She actually learned to speak Spanish from some of her coworkers, at least that was what she thought. Let’s just say they had a good time with Ruth’s gullibility at American Licorice. Probably the best perk of working for American Licorice was all the red vines Ruth brought home to friends and family. Ruth enjoyed watching game shows on TV, playing solitaire on the floor, playing video poker, telling jokes, crocheting, going to Red Hawk casino with her husband, cuddling with Angel and spending time with friends and family. She loved to tell her children and grandchildren stories about her life and life experiences. Ruth was truly a blessing to all she came into contact with. She had many, many, many guardian angels with her in the end and she will be dearly missed. Please share your stories of Ruth, her family looks forward to hearing all the wonderful memories you have shared with her.
