Marjorie “Ruth” Merryman

Marjorie “Ruth” Merryman was born on August 16, 1920, in Portland Township Cerro Gordo Co., Iowa, daughter of Walter and Bessie (Mains) Beard. She graduated from Nora Springs High School and went on to Hamilton Business College. On April 10, 1939, Ruth was united in marriage to Jessie “Sid” Merryman in Webster City. They traveled all over the United States. Ruth worked at Black’s and then at Donaldson’s. She loved being active in the church and listening to Southern gospel music. Ruth also enjoyed playing cards, taking care of her roses and irises, but she especially loved being around her family.
