Ruth (Wehmhoff) Corbaley was born in Pateros, Washington, the second of three children to Lester and Mildred Wehmhoff. Ruth was preceded in death by her parents, brothers, George and Ralph and love of her life, Art.

She received her nursing degree from Everett College and worked as a kind and caring Registered Nurse at the Valley Terrace Nursing Home in Auburn.
