Ruthie was baptized and confirmed into the Methodist Church in Prescott and served as their Secretary/Treasurer for many years. She attended Prescott Community Schools and graduated May 6, 1942. Ruthie participated in vocal and instrumental music and also played the piano and organ.

Ruthie met and later married Delmar Breach on June 6, 1956. They were married 12 years before his passing. No children were born to this union and Ruthie was an only child. During her life Ruthie worked as a Clerk at the local grocery store and was a homemaker.

As a youngster she enjoyed roller-skating and learned how to play cards from her dad. She attended the Iowa State Fair starting as a child and only missed attending four years. Her hobbies were crocheting, flowers, baking, word puzzle books and dancing. Ruthie attended dances around SW Iowa, especially the Chicken Inn, until 2020. For many years Ruthie submitted local news for the Adams County Free Press. Ruthie was an avid Hawkeye Football and Basketball Fan! Another of her passions were her beloved cats, which kept her company for many years. Ruthie was very sharp and was a wonderful historian of both ancestry and the history of Prescott.

Preceding her in death were her parents, Ernest and Lucille Green, husband Delmar Breach and special friend Bud. She is survived by her cousin and caregiver Jolene (Green) Hinrichs of Prescott, close friends Anita Mittag, Mary Lu Schofield and other friends.

Private Graveside Services will be at Evergreen Cemetery in Prescott, Iowa at a later date. Memorials may be directed to the family to purchase a headstone.
