Ruth Margaret Monroe was born July 16, 1925, to Oren and Elsie (Landis) Monroe in Eldora, IA. She attended school in Lake View, graduating from Lake View High School. Following graduation, she worked at the Raft Packing Company in Waterloo. Then after two years, she moved to Rockwell City to work on the rations board and at the Rockwell City Bank.

On December 28, 1946, she was united in marriage to Joseph Eugene Rehm in Sac City. To this union seven children were born: Connie, Bob, Rich, Mary Ann, Tom, Donnie, and Deb. After Ruth and Joseph were married, they resided in the Rockwell City/Auburn/Sac City area and lived there for many years. Ruth and Joe moved to Wall Lake in the late 1980’s and Ruth has remained there until her passing.

She enjoyed time spent with her card group and coffee group. Most of all she loved spending time with her children and grandchildren. Ruth was very proud to become a great-grandmother.
