Ruth met her husband Nolan while they were both students at Alvin High School in Alvin, Texas. Back then, she was a state champion player while Nolan was a standout baseball and basketball star. Very much in love with each other, the two got married on June 26, 1967. The happy couple has three amazing and beautiful children together: Robert Reid, born on November 21, 1971, Jimmy Reese, born on January 21, 1976, and Wendy Lynn, born on March 22, 1977.
Apart from being a mother and wife, Ruth is also very involved in charitable works. Together with her husband Nolan, she helped create the Nolan Ryan Foundation- a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing resources for youth, education and community development.
