Hollas Purcell RIVERA Obituary
RIVERA, Hollas Purcell 1966 - 2017 Hollas Purcell Rivera, age 51, of Woodbridge, CT, beloved wife of Peter Rivera, passed away peacefully into eternal rest on October 14, 2017. Born on March 17, 1966, in Greenwich, CT, she was the daughter of Constance Neher Purcell and the late Martin Alexander Purcell of Palm Beach and West Palm Beach, FL. Hollas graduated from both Palm Beach Day School in Florida and St. Paul's School in New Hampshire, before going on to earn her undergraduate degree at Yale University. Fluent in five languages, she went on to get a Master's degree from Fairfield University in 1998 before dedicating the rest of her life to her family. She is survived by three sons, Miles (9), Simon (14), and Chase (18), as well her husband of 22 years. Hollas was a unique soul, known for her sense of humor, warmth, and whip-smart intelligence. She instinctively made those around her feel loved and appreciated. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions in her honor may be made to the St. Paul's School in Concord, NH, on their website (www.sps.edu/donate).
