She grew up and attended school there, graduating from Eastern High School. Ruthe went on to attend Lansing Community College. In the late 60’s, she began work as a Respiratory Therapist for Ingham Medical in Lansing. It was there that she met Gary King and they were united in marriage on September 19, 1975, in Lansing. In September of 1983, Gary moved to Aberdeen, SD, to start work at Avera St. Luke’s Hospital. Ruthe followed in early 1984 to take a job as a Respiratory Therapist at Dakota Midland Hospital. Shortly thereafter, Ruthe was made Technical Director of the department. After the merger of St. Luke’s and Dakota Midland, Ruthe worked in the Cardiology department of St. Luke’s. She retired from there, but later went to work for Avera@Home home care. Ruthe was a member of Aberdeen First UMC. She served as a First Lieutenant in the Civil Air Patrol of the Air Force Auxiliary and was the Safety Officer of the local squadron. Ruthe enjoyed serving with the Marine Corps Toys for Tots program at Christmas time. She was an avid reader. Gary and Ruthe were inseparable.
