Ruth was one of six daughters born to Frank and Elsie O'Donnell on January 8, 1928, in Pennsylvania. As young parents, Don and Ruth moved to the Seattle area in 1962 and settled in Columbia City. Ruth began her long career with the City of Seattle, retiring as the accounting supervisor. Upon her retirement, Ruth moved to Fairwood, Renton, WA and was able to give more time to the things she loved doing like gardening and spending time with her family. She was active in the local garden club and spent many hours working in her yard and taking Irish, her german Sheppard on long walks. In addition to 'shopping with the girls', some of Ruth's favorite activities were playing bingo, scrabble and planning numerous family gatherings.   

Ruth was a lovely person and she will be greatly missed by all.
