Wilma (Hofmann) Ripple ‘ 58

Published on Thursday, February 9th, 2012

Wilma (Hofmann) Ripple ‘ 58 has been married to her WPI sweetheart David Ripple for more than 50 years, “a wonderful journey,” she says, which began in Worcester in 1957. David was a member of the Sigma Phi Epsilon fraternity and Wilma lived at Heywood House. “I had to walk through the WPI campus to get to my classes at Becker. We have many fond memories of that short, but fun, important, exciting and romantic part of our lives. Who would have thought that we would have 50-plus years together? We have returned to Worcester for many reunions, and I still enjoy my contacts with my two terrific Heywood House roommates.”
