Ruthie Marie Caliup was a long time nurse of 25 years who cared for so many people and helped save and take care of other’s loved ones. It was one of her passions to take care of others, even put those before herself. She supported her friends in anything they did. From buying 100 of dollars of Girl Scout cookies, to supporting her friend’s in their little businesses.
After working in the nursing field for so many years she stepped away and took on another career path in truck driving with her husband, Albert Caliup for Panther. They made the perfect team together and got recognized for their driving record. She had a heart of gold and would never see the negative as she was always so positive in life. She has 7 children who love her dearly.
