Ruth's love for children was apparent as she worked as a custodian and cafeteria worker for many years at Union Grove Elementary School. She later moved to North Iredell Middle School and worked in the cafeteria. She was the community mom for lots of young children who stayed with her after school.

Also surviving are two sisters Juanita W. Cashatt of High Point, Nellie W. Myers of Statesville, and a brother Dwight Wallace (Joann) of Statesville, a special nephew Richard "Ricky" Myers of Olin, and a host of other nieces, nephews, cousins and her "school" children. Preceding her in death was her husband and a daughter Brenda Roten and a brother, Henry Wallace.
