Mary Ruth grew in the Martins Creek community. She attended Martins Creek School, Murphy High, Young Harris College and North Georgia College, Dahlonega, where she received her bachelor's degree.

In later years, fixing lots of snacks and finding just the right cartoon channel for grandchildren and great- grandchildren was her great- est source of joy.
