Rev. and Mrs. Ronald C. Purkey




I am a nurse, a mother, and a preacher's wife. Ron and I have been married for over fifty years and have two children. We also have three grandchildren.


While Ron and I were a young married couple, three of our infant children died because of Muscular Dystrophy. After the death of our twenty-five day old son on Christmas day in 1958, we both accepted Jesus Christ as our Savior. In 1960 Ron entered the ministry, and we moved to Tennessee. We both attended Tennessee Temple University in Chattanooga and were active members of the Highland Park Baptist Church.


I have been a nurse for over fifty years. I graduated from Purdue University Calumet Campus, Hammond, Indiana as an LPN; from Grace College, Winona Lake, Indiana as an RN; and from Bethel College, Mishawaka, Indiana with a BA degree in management. I also completed some work on a MA degree at Indiana University, South Bend.


In 1995 my husband and I were the co-founders of Hope Hospice, Inc. in Rochester, Indiana. I served Hope Hospice as the director of patient care/vice president for thirteen years and on the board of directors for seventeen years. Also, I served for four years processing the monthly Medicare billing. I now serve as a hospice volunteer.
