Ruth worked as a computer operator for the Armed Services office in Chicago and later for Illinois Bell in Northwest Accounting. They were blessed with three children: Betty Ball and family in Denver, Jean Zaboth and family in Nokesville, Va., and Ed and family in Minneapolis. They enjoy their six grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.

After leaving their home in Elmhurst, Ill., they moved to Cape Coral 23 years ago and continue to be active at Faith Presbyterian Church and the Cast-aweighs Boat Club.

In Ed's retirement, he takes pride in making doll houses for his great-grandchildren which take priority on his bucket list.

Ed and Ruth are grateful for their 65 blessed years together and their caring and supportive family.
