Ruth was a nurse for many years working in the Maternity Ward of the Moose Jaw General Hospital and then later in the Emergency Ward of the Moose Jaw Union Hospital. On March 30, 1957, Ruth married George Durie. Ruth and George always enjoyed entertaining and visiting with all who came to the farm. When they weren’t away travelling, they could be found dancing most every evening.
