Ruth McDevitt’s zodiac sign is Virgo. According to astrologers, Virgos are always paying attention to the smallest details and their deep sense of humanity makes them one of the most careful signs of the zodiac. Their methodical approach to life ensures that nothing is left to chance, and although they are often tender, their heart might be closed for the outer world. This is a sign often misunderstood, not because they lack the ability to express, but because they won’t accept their feelings as valid, true, or even relevant when opposed to reason. The symbolism behind the name speaks well of their nature, born with a feeling they are experiencing everything for the first time.
Ruth McDevitt was born in the Year of the Goat. Those born under the Chinese Zodiac sign of the Goat enjoy being alone in their thoughts. They’re creative, thinkers, wanderers, unorganized, high-strung and insecure, and can be anxiety-ridden. They need lots of love, support and reassurance. Appearance is important too. Compatible with Pig or Rabbit.
Delightfully daffy and an apple dumpling of a darling, wizened character actress Ruth McDevitt was born Ruth Shoecraft in Michigan but raised in Ohio where her father served as a county sheriff. She attended the American Academy of Dramatic Art with designs of becoming an actress but married a Florida widower soon after and put full focus on being a wife. Her husband died in 1934 and, at age 40+, Ruth decided to dabble again with community theater productions which reignited her passion. She became a viable presence on Broadway and radio in the late 30s and 40s in both comedic and dramatic fare. Highlights on the stage included roles in Picnic and The Solid Gold Cadillac. Her flair for eccentric comedy opened a huge door for the veteran player in the television and film worlds during the 50s and 60s as one of those faces you couldn't put a name to but instinctively knew. She drew attention as the mother of Wally Cox in the Mister Peepers (1952) series and later milked laughs as a gun totin', sharpshootin' granny in the comedy Pistols 'n' Petticoats (1966) starring Ann Sheridan. The series ended after only one season due to the death from cancer of Ms. Sheridan. Ruth decorated a number of fluffy film comedies as a befuddled, warble-voiced elderly in such fun as The Parent Trap (1961), The Shakiest Gun in the West (1968), Angel in My Pocket (1969) and Mame (1974). Ruth died of natural causes in 1976.
