In 1949, Ruth went to Chicago on a bus with her sister Ruby to seek work. While living there, Ruth went on a blind date to see a live performance stage show called Julia Rosa with a man named Carson. That night she met the man of her dreams and the one she would spend the rest of her life with, Floyd Carson Rowe. Carson joined the Air Force in 1953 and was stationed in Alaska for 2 years. He was then transferred to Limestone, Maine. While on leave, Ruth and Carson were married on December 10, 1955 by a judge in Chicago. In 1958, they moved to North Judson, Indiana to live with family. This is where they called home and raised their family. Carson would always say he “wanted a Queen but got a King.” Ruth’s greatest joys in life were spending time with her family and serving her church. Ruth also enjoyed gardening, canning and cooking. She was known for her cornbread, fried chicken and hamburgers with steamed buns. Ruth gave her heart and life to the Lord in November of 1959, while at the Denham FWB Church.
