Obituaries: Ruth C. Chatfield

July 28, 2020

 Ruth C. Chatfield, a lifelong resident of Cornwall-on-Hudson, entered into rest on Thursday, July 23, 2020. She was 86.

The daughter of the late John and Florence Becker, she was born on July 29, 1933 in Cornwall, NY.

Ruth was the secretary in the office at Cornwall-on-Hudson Elementary School for 45 years. She was a longtime member of Storm King Engine Co. #2 Ladies Auxiliary. Ruth’s greatest joy was her grandchildren, whom she adored. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend, and she will be deeply missed.

Survivors include: her husband, Alfred, at home; son Guy and his wife Donna of Cornwall-on-Hudson; son John and his wife Tina of TN; daughter Pam Scheck and husband Gary of FL; grandchildren: Eric, Scott, Russell, Chris, Thomas and Jenna; several great-grandchildren; and sister Louise Barham of CA. She was predeceased by her son, Thomas Chatfield , and her sister Druscilla.

Due to the current health crisis, a Memorial Service for Ruth will be held at a later date. Donations may be made in Ruth’s memory to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105-9959.
