- ―Chuck and Ruth seconds before her death.[src]
Ruth was originally from Wisconsin and later moved to Cicero (""). She was married to Charles McGill at one point in her life and together they had two sons; Charles Jr. and James. She helped her husband manage their small convenience store ("")
On her deathbed, with Chuck at her side, Ruth briefly awoke and called out for Jimmy. Chuck tried to tell her it was him but Ruth continued asking for Jimmy. Before Chuck could tell her it was him, Ruth then passed away; her last words calling for Jimmy.
