Patricia Anne Beach

Patricia Anne (Ruppell) Beach died at home on December 7, 2020, after a 40+ year battle with MS, surrounded by loved ones in Clarksville, TN. She was 72 years old. Patricia was born January 10, 1948 in Weehawken, NJ to Evelyn (Johnson) and Charles Ruppell.

She spent her school aged years growing up in Nutley, NJ. She would reminisce about spending time with her family growing up. They could often be found swimming down the shore, at a lake, or out for a picnic in the country. She was very active in the youth group at Brookdale Baptist Church, she had many stories of trips and activities with her friends.

She enjoyed playing football with her brothers in the backyard and playing clarinet in the school band. She attended North Eastern Bible College, where she played soccer and traveled to Europe with friends. She was an experienced piano player and gave lessons at her home in Waterbury Center, VT. In her spare time, Patricia could be found reading, baking, drawing, working on a puzzle, tending her wild flower garden, or not missing an episode of Jeopardy. As her MS progressed, she fought against the disease while keeping her faith and her hopes about the future.

She is preceded in death by her father, Charles Ruppell. Patricia is survived by her mother, Evelyn (Johnson) Ruppell; her three children, Justin and his wife, Staci; Shara; Elsbeth and her husband, Jason; seven grandchildren, Devandy, Logan, Hayden, Emilyn, Annabelle, Brian and Catherine; her four brothers and their wives, Peter and Mary Ann, David and Joyce, James and Judith, and Timothy and Rhea; her Aunt Mildred; and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
