Spanish teacher, researcher and expert on Spanish exile in Mexico. She was daughter of politician and professor Mariano Ruiz Funes and Carmen Montesinos.

She married Ramiro Ruiz Durá, poet and writer that was a kid refugee in Mexico as well.

She stood out for her faithfulness to realism and her human background, as it is seen in "Las mujeres exiliadas españolas en la ciudad de México, un exilio sin fin"; "El exilio republicano español en México"; "Lázaro Cárdenas y los republicanos españoles" and "Final y comienzo, el Sinaia".
