Ruby A. Pichette

Ruby A. Pichette, 89, Algoma, a cherished mother, passed away on April 12, 2024, in Green Bay, WI. She was born on December 14, 1934, in Door County, Wisconsin, to the late Alphonse and Pearl (Leeman) Hegnet. Ruby married Clifford Pichette on May 29, 1954, at St. Mary’s in Algoma. He preceded her in death on September 16, 2006. Ruby lived a life filled with simple pleasures and genuine kindness. Hardworking and dedicated. Ruby will be remembered for her love of yardwork, tending to her garden, and admiring blooming flowers. She found solace in nature, often taking peaceful walks and enjoying the sight of animals in the backyard. Word searches and games of Bingo brought her joy, showing her playful spirit and sharp mind. But perhaps what defined Ruby most was her innate desire to lend a helping hand to those in need, a quality that touched the lives of many. Ruby is survived by her children, Dan (Mary) Pichette, Dale Pichette, David Pichette, Steve (Char) Pichette, and Andy (Diane) Pichette; 13 grandchildren; many great-grandchildren; sisters-in-law, Jeanette Watermolen, Rosie Pichette; as well as by nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her husband Clifford; sons, John Paul and Bill Pichette; grandson, Jason Tweedy; parents, Alphonse and Pearl Hegnet, brothers and sisters; daughters-in-law, Tina Pichette, and Judith Pichette. Friends and family are invited to honor Ruby's life at her funeral mass and visitation, to be held at St. Mary's Catholic Church in Algoma on April 20, 2024.
