It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Ruth G. Purcell on January 21, 2024 at her home in Easthampton. Present at the time of her death was her loving wife Yvette, her nieces, Ronna and Kim and her personal CNA Lisa.

Ruth was raised and educated in Germany where she met her husband and immigrated to the United States where they raised their family. Ruth worked for Digital Equipment Corporation for 13 years before retiring in 1991 to care for her beloved Domi. She was an avid reader and a history buff. Ruth and Yvette shared a passion for tennis and walking on Skinner Mountain.

Ruth is survived by her devoted wife, Yvette M. Ledoux; her 2 children, Kenneth Gabriel and Ingrid Westcott; her granddaughters, Sarah, Jessica and her grandson Dana; her 5 great grandchildren as well as loved ones still residing in Germany.
