Ruth was born in Jefferson City, MO (pronounced Missoura by Ruth) on September 3, 1934. She passed away surrounded by family at Emory Hospital on March 26, 2018.

She grew up in Chamois, MO on the banks of the Missouri River. Ruth was a 1952 graduate of Chamois High School. For the last 36 years, she enjoyed working with her son-in-law and other friends at Namano and Southeastern Findings in Tucker, GA. She had just retired this past January. Ruth was predeceased by her parents George and Edna Kishmar, her son Baby Jerry and her sister Mary Callais.

Ruth is survived by her daughters - Michelle Hodgin and Lisa Callaway and her husband Gus, her grandchildren - Laura Hodgin, Sarah Hodgin, Chrissy Callaway, Mayson Callaway and his wife Erin Callaway and her great-granddaughter Lucy Artime and by her brother - George Kishmar and his wife Mary.
