Ruth was an fellow breast cancer patient who also fell victim to the Irish Mob's fake chemotherapy drug operation. Archer developed a friendship with her which he reminisced about during his rampage. Unfortunately, Ruth died during Archer's rampage because her chemo drugs did nothing to fight her cancer. Archer's response to this is documented in his film Terms of En-Rampagement.
Ruth recommended that Archer watch Regis every morning to start his day off right.
