Ruth Marie Dunnirvine, of Wareham, MA, formerly of Needham, MA and Westwood, MA, died peacefully surrounded by her loving family on November 23, 2023. Beloved mother of William J.

Ruth's family was of utmost importance to her, in her early days spending much time with her siblings in Boston, embracing her Irish culture, and later welcoming her 4 children. Ruth was a devoted mother and grandmother, thoroughly enjoying watching her children and grandchildren play various sports. Ruth loved listening to Elvis, spending time talking on the porch to her Needham friends, crafting and bookbinding, and walking along the beach, especially with her son, Kevin.
