    Going along the track that the above are Ruth's parents, this census record shows her mother as divorced eight years later and raising the children with Ruth as the oldest. The mother's birth year differs, but matches for Ruth.

    I found this obituary for sibling John who passed in July 2010 in Arizona (link here) which mentions, "There was Willie, Donald, Ruth, Leslie, Wanda Kate, Terry and Judy." It also mentions surviving siblings "...Brothers, Willie, Leslie, Donald, Terry, and Judy."

    I found contact information for John's son and daughter (Ruth's nephew and niece). PM'ing to Raine & Nemo'sMom!
