Ruth was educated in the public schools of Clarendon County. As a child, she joined the St. Mark Baptist Church in Pinewood, where she accepted Christ at an early age. Her love of singing began at St. Mark where she, her mother and her sisters sang on various choirs. She later joined Salem Baptist Church, where she was a long-time member of the Adult Choir, the Trustee Wives, the Mothers’ Club, and participated in numerous other ministries. In her later years, “everyday” she looked forward to Sundays so she could go to Salem, the church she loved so dearly. She was employed at Williams Furniture Factory in Sumter for many years. After retirement, she continued her education at Sumter Area Technical College (now Central Carolina Technical College) and became certified as a Patient Sitter. As a young adult, she married the late Preston Taylor, Sr. and to this union six children were born. After his death, she later married the late Clarence Young, Sr. who brought to this union one son and two daughters, one of whom preceded them in death.
