Ruth was born in Heber City, UT and raised in Charleston, UT on Casperville Road. She married her highschool sweetheart Mike Crittenden on November 6, 1969 and was a graduate from South Summit High School.
Ruth loved spending time with her family, camping, hunting for good deals, animals, and was an avid reader. Every Wednesday morning Ruth could be found with her sister Peggy searching the local Heber City thrift stores for treasures. A lifelong animal lover she could always be counted on to adopt the local stray and loved riding her horse, Tuffy. Ruth loved being close to her grandchildren and always had cookies waiting for them on the kitchen counter. Those that knew Ruth loved her, and she loved them. She watched over all of us - she will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
