Ruth Ann Duske was born July 10, 1953, in Minneapolis, MN to Ervin & Annabelle Duske. Her early years were shaped in Hopkins, MN and later relocated to Annandale, MN where she graduated in 1971. She held many jobs over the years, but her success was in real estate where she enjoyed being able to help clients close on their properties. Ruth married the love of her life, Mike Chock, on March 18, 1978, at St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Annandale, MN. In 1984, the family moved to Turtle River Lake near Bemidji. Ruth enjoyed reading, music and playing the piano. However, her utmost joy was her family, and she loved being surrounded by her kids and grandkids.
