Ruth Budd

I was born in Kemmerer, WY., in the year 1914. Some other places I have lived are Rocks Springs, Nebraska, and Reliance. I had three children. I taught school for a few years. When I was young my school in Rocks Springs was a two room schoolhouse. We heated our house with coal. I think that the most important change in my life was just coming back to Big Piney and changing my life completely. Some of the things that I enjoyed most were ranching, riding, fencing, and learning about horses.
