She moved to the Baltimore suburbs as a young child and lived there until 1953 when she married the love of her life, Gordon, to whom she has been married for fifty-one years. Ruth has been blessed with five children, Gordon, Jr. (Bunk) born 11/9/54, Christina Ann born 4/24/56, Teresa Ann born 9/6/57, Mark Steven born 9/24/59 and Joseph Davis (Dave) born 4/15/61.
Ruth has always been interested in bowling. She remembers setting pins at a bowling house as a young girl and started league bowling when she was sixteen years old. Ruth started as a duck pin bowler and progressed to ten pins when she moved to Harford County in 1963.
Ruth started bowling tournaments in 1972 and has participated in every HCWBA tournament she was physically able to. She has competed in the Nationals for thirteen years and hopes to make it to twenty-five years. She has very much enjoyed the chance to travel to these tournaments with her husband, seeing new parts of the country, meeting new people and enjoying the close friendship of her teammates.
