Later that same year, Ruth met her husband of 71 years, Dale Richard Guest, at a Spokane roller skating rink. They married on December 31, 1948. Together they raised 2 sons; George, born in 1950, and Brian seven years later. The family built a home and lived in the Spokane area for many years. Ruth was employed for a time at a telephone company, and later worked for the Cheney School District, particularly Windsor Elementary School until her retirement.
