She is the oldest of three step-brothers and three step-sisters. Ruth grew up on the family farm and attended Lindale High school. After graduation, she attended and graduated from Tyler Junior College.

During the fifties, the family lived in various towns around East Texas. In Lindale, Texas, Ruth worked as secretary for the Lindale and Port Neches School District while Bob was a teacher and a principal. Rebecca Ann Bone Renaud was born there, and four years later, Robert Stephen Bone was born in Paris, Texas.

Living in Clarksville, Texas, Ruth worked as a legal secretary, and this began her career as a Legal Secretary. She was President of the Paris New Comers Club and a member of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. In 1970, they moved to Austin, and in 1975, wanting to live in a smaller town, they moved to Round Rock.

They joined First Baptist Church and Ruth became very active in Sunday School and the Women's Missionary Union. Ruth was a giving and loving person. She always found a way to brighten someone's day, lifting them up with words of encouragement. She was a devout Christian and this was very evident in her everyday life and what she did for others. She loved people and wanted to be around people. She was a loving wife and mother and is going to be missed more than can be expressed.
