Her third marriage was to a nice man and they lived in Virginia. Ruth went to Hunter College and played in a musical group that toured briefly in the U.S.

      From a conversation while visiting May Balowitz at the Ararat nursing home in Mission Hills, CA:
      According to Joan [Krimsky] and Rhonnie Balowitz Lingle, Ruth was “nutty” even before she had Alzheimer’s. She claimed to have been abducted by aliens.
