Ruth grew up in Spencerport, moving to Hilton after her marriage to Robert. She worked for many years as a Dental Hygienist for Dr. Shulman and others. She was a member of the Hilton Baptist Church for 74 years. During the 1950's and 1960's, Ruth was active in charity work such as with The March of Dimes, Vacation Bible School and with the Hilton Fire Department Auxiliary. She enjoyed reading and playing cards, and was active in her bridge club into her 90's. Ruth and Bob spent many years in an antique auto club and enjoyed touring in their car. We will all miss seeing her on her front porch on warm days, watching Hilton go by. Mostly, Ruth loved spending time with her family and will be missed dearly.
