She grew up a true country girl. Her parents were easy going and her dad worked at the OKC Packing House. At a young age, Ruth learned to garden, grow flowers, quilt and sew. Moss roses were Ruth’s favorite flowers and she was a very avid quilter and skilled sewer who enjoyed making items for her family and friends. She married her one true love, James Bennett and together shared many years of marriage and raising their three daughters, until his passing on August 13, 1984.
