Notes:  Ruth Robison was born 18 May 1920 in Logan, Cache, Utah.  She was the fifth child of George Albert Robison and Laura Barbara Walker.  Her father George was a farmer.  She had an older brother Alden V., born in 1909, an older sister Nella, born in 1911, and an older brother Benjamin J., born in 1915.  A sister Ava Leah, born in 1913, had died in 1914.

Ruth had three more siblings.  Her brother George Almon was born in 1922, brother Francis W. in 1927, and sister Barbara in 1929.  Her brother Alden came down with influenza and died in 1926.

In the 1930 U.S. census, Ruth was living with her family on North Main Street, Hinckley, Millard, Utah.  Her family owned their farm, but had no radio set.  Her father George was an inspector for the state agricultural department.  The children were Nella, 18, Benjamin, 14, Ruth, 10, G. Almon, 8, Francis 2, and Barbara, 1.  The older four children attended school.  Her youngest brother Clair Albert was born in 1930.

Ruth graduated from Hinckley High School.  Here she earned honors in a 1937 regional Vocational Day in the area of bookeeping.  She was a member of the Delta Women's Drum and Bugle corps, and, in September 1938, traveled to Los Angeles to take part in the American Legion convention.  She attended the Branch Agricultural College, graduating with honors with an associate degree.  While there, she participated in the performing arts, and in November 1938 had to be replaced as an actress when she had an acute attack of appendicitis.

In the 1940 U.S. census, Ruth was living with her family in Hinckley, Millard, Utah, in the same house as in 1935.  Her father George was a farmer.  The children at home were Ruth, 19, who had completed one year of college and was doing farm labor; G. Almon, 18, three years of high school, doing farm labor; Francis, 12, 6th grade; Barbara 10, 4th grade; and Clair A., 9, 3rd grade.

Ruth married McKay Neilsen Ahlstrom on 12 Apr 1941 in the Manti Temple, Manti, Sanpete, Utah.  They were married for 36 years and had four children.  Ruth and her husband Kay both obtained their pilot's license, and flew together.  Ruth and her husband Kay are listed in the Salt Lake City, Utah City Directories from 1948 through 1960 as living at 733 East 39th South, Salt Lake City, Utah.  Kay was an auto mechanic, and was often listed as Ahlstrom Body & Fender doing business at the rear of their residence.  Ruth is listed as a bookeeper for William Volker & Co of Utah in 1952 and 1953.

The marriage ended about 1977.

Ruth married Robert Charles Allsop on 21 Apr 1980.  He was a widower with grown children.  Ruth and Robert traveled extensively during their 27 years of marriage.  They made their home in Salt Lake City at 3139 Melbourne St., the residence he had shared with his first wife.  They were active in the Latter-day Saints church, and were temple workers in the Jordan Temple.

Ruth's husband Robert died 26 May 2007.  He was buried with his first wife Fay Bramble in the Larkin Sunset Gardens Cemetery, Sandy, Utah.  Ruth died shortly thereafter, in Salt Lake City on 30 Jun 2007.  Funeral services were held 7 Jul 2007 at the Kenwood 1st Ward.  She was buried in the Larkin Sunset Gardens.
