Ruth Uzrad was born in Berlin in 1925, the eldest of three daughters, to a religious Jewish family. During World War II she escaped to Belgium and continued her flight to the south of France, where she spent her teenage years before finally arriving in Israel in 1945. In Israel she became a pioneer and founder of a new kibbutz on the conflict-ridden northern border, in close proximity to Syria. In later years, she studied nursing and became the kibbutz nurse. Together with her husband, David, she raised four sons. She passed away in 2015 at the age of ninety, leaving behind a large family, including many grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
