Ruth attended Hiawatha High School and graduated as a class valedictorian in 1927. She treasured her agricultural background and owned several farms in Brown County. In an effort to encourage young graduates of Hiawatha High School to pursue degrees in agricultural-related fields, Ruth directed that a scholarship to Kansas State University be established in memory of her brother, Norman Charles Koelliker, who died in 1935.
