Ruth was involved in the Lehigh Valley Homeschool Enrichment Program, the Indianland Garden Club, and various discussion groups. She hosted the Fall Annual Book Exchange in her home, as well as monthly Sunday Breakfasts. She had a variety of jobs throughout her life, including working at Zales jewelry store D&D factory and WAWA. She was an office manager in a few doctor's offices and most recently at Holencik Exteriors. She had a great appreciation for art and filled her home with pieces from local artists and her own photography. She was the treasurer of the letter writing group, Sincerely Barnabas and co-authored a book with its members. She enjoyed gardening with Ken and was very proud that she kept her rosemary plant alive through many winters.
Ruth had a great skill for bringing people together whether for a good cause of just for fun. She was witty and intelligent, curious and adventurous, hard working and loyal. Even while she was dying, she lived: mending relationships, planning for the future, and deepening her understanding of God all while displaying dignity and grace of a true Christian waiting for her Heavenly father to take her home. She is now sitting at the feet of Jesus being showered with his love and comfort. She was a member of St. John Fisher Catholic Church, N. Catasauqua.
