Ruth (Bush) Suchinski, 86, of Wolcott, widow of Joseph Suchinski, died on Thursday (June 30, 2022) at John Dempsey Hospital, Farmington. Ruth was born on Dec. 6, 1935 in Bristol, and was one of eight children of the late Emil and Lillian (Powers) Bush.
A longtime Wolcott resident, she worked for General Electric, Plainville, for 13 years and Johnson & Johnson/Critikon before retiring. She was a member and past-president of the Billy Peterson Post, Wolcott American Legion Auxiliary, and a parishioner of St. Basil the Great Parish, Wolcott.
Ruth was an inspiration to many who met her, always having a smile and words of encouragement. She was an avid bowler. Ruth loved watching UCONN girls’ basketball and Yankees baseball. Gardening and working in her yard always gave her joy.
