Ruth was born on May 31, 1919, in Portland, Maine. She was the daughter of Nellie (Fitzpatrick) and Charles H. Michaud, and was the loving sister to Doris E. Moody. She graduated from Dearing High School, where she met her beloved husband of 51 years, Lloyd Ross McIntosh.

Ruth is survived by her sons, Richard McIntosh of Greensboro, NC; John McIntosh of Lexington, MA; and daughter, Martha (McIntosh), and her husband, Jim Bransfield of Wilmington, MA.
