In her youth, Ruth was an avid tennis player and swimmer. 

Ruth and Sidney enjoyed travel and often spent time visiting family in California and Florida.

Ruth was a loving and compassionate mother of two sons, Mark, Los Angeles, Calif.; and Gary, Tampa, Fla.; and her grandson, Corey, Los Angeles.

Also surviving are a sister, Lee Gromer, Scranton; as well as nieces and nephews.

She was also preceded in death by several siblings.

I worked with Ruth at COLTS for 13 years and I met her husband Sid. They were a couple who were always proud of their 2 sons, Mark and Gary.
The boys can be happy that Sid is now joined with Ruth.
