Louise Herron Ripple

Posted On October 17th, 2017 -

Louise Herron RippleMarch 16, 1918 - October 3, 2017 Louise Herron Ripple, known to her friends as 'Jimmie', passed away peacefully at Arcadia Retirement Residence in Honolulu on October 3. She was 99. Jimmie was born to loving parents Charles Douglas and Louise Milligan Herron, in Richmond, VA. She grew up as an Army 'brat' and traveled extensively with her parents and brother, Bill, as her father, who retired as a three-star general, was stationed at many Army posts around the world. She graduated from Bryn Mawr College with degrees in music and German. While visiting her parents at Ft. Shafter in Honolulu in 1939 she met Richard ('Rip') W. Ripple, also a West Point graduate and career Army officer. They were married in 1941 and embarked on an adventurous life together that took them to post-war Germany and Izmir, Turkey, as well as many stateside tours of duty. Jimmie was a quintessential Army wife, just as her mother had been. Rip's last posting was in Honolulu, where he and Jimmie retired in 1966 and enjoyed a full life of friends, music, paddle tennis, bridge, worldwide travel, golf, deep sea diving (Jimmie), and fishing (Rip). Jimmie's natural curiosity and independent nature led her to pursue her many interests throughout her life. She was an accomplished equestrian as a teenager and won many hunter/jumper competitions; in keeping with her avid interest in nature and preservation, she was a member of the Outdoor Circle; as a violinist and violist, she made friends and organized chamber music groups wherever she lived, including in Honolulu, where she was active in the Morning Music Club and played in the Honolulu Symphony. At age 65, she fibbed about her age so she could take scuba diving lessons. She dove around the world, taking photos of undersea life and delighting in the creatures she encountered. She was a docent at the Honolulu Aquarium and she regularly swam out to the windsock in the channel at the Outrigger Canoe Club. Rip passed away shortly after they moved to Arcadia in 1998. Jimmie stayed active well into her 90's, swimming at the Outrigger, playing chamber music and bridge, and supporting music and the arts. Her many friends at Arcadia, some of whom she had known since 1963, were dear to her. She was an inspiration to all who knew her, and her gracious nature and gentle warmth will be remembered always. She is survived by her four children, Richard Ripple and his wife Fiona (Nipomo, CA), Louise Ripple Yuhas (Smith Valley, NV), Daphne Ripple Araujo and her husband Bart (Napa, CA), and Carol Ripple and her husband David Bersoff (New York, NY); three grandchildren, Jessie Doernberger (Baltimore, MD), Jeremy Doernberger (Washington, DC), and Camille Ripple (Boca Raton, FL); granddaughter Olivia Ripple predeceased her grandmother in 2015. Jimmie will be missed by her three step-grandchildren, Jaime Araujo Bezian (Piedmont, CA), Gregory Araujo (Boca Raton, FL), and Chris Araujo (Portland, OR). Friends are welcome to a celebration of her life at Arcadia, 1434 Punahou Street, Honolulu, at 2:00pm on Wednesday, October 18th. In lieu of flowers the family requests donations to the Morning Music Club of Honolulu. Please contact Susan Spangler at (808) 734-2925 for further information.
