She semi-retired in 2001 after 25 years of service. After her retirement she worked part time at the Casper Country Club and Paradise Valley Golf Club.

She was an active community member throughout her life. She particularly enjoyed volunteering in all of her son Mike’s sports programs during his athletic years.

She enjoyed ceramics, decorating, and scrapbooking. Ruthie adored Christmas, handcrafting and collecting decorations to create an amazing Christmas Wonderland in her home for all to share each year.
