Prior to her marriage, Ruth worked at the cheese plant in Curwensville. Ruth married Albert Danvir on December 1, 1944. They raised their family in Irishtown. They had many adventures together and especially enjoyed camping at Pine Creek and their trips out West. They were married for 57 years until Albert’s death in 2001. She was a member of the St. Bonaventure Roman Catholic Church.
