Ruth Barnes McClintock was born on April 19, 1899. She taught at the Lansing Public Schools. In February 1926, she married Freeman Hart “Mac” McClintock (June 21, 1892 - May 20, 1983).

Ruth played golf, and was a member of the Lansing Country Club, and later the Walnut Hills Country Club. She was also a member of the Friends of the Kresge Art Center at Michigan State University, and helped raise funds to purchase art for the Kresge’s permanent collections. Ruth McClintock died January 3, 1997, and is buried in Evergreen Cemetery (Lansing, Michigan), alongside her husband.
