Ruth Copeland – General Manager

Ruth Copeland

Mrs. Copeland joined the Turbyfill family in 1996, continuing a career she began in 1978 in the Roanoke Valley. In her nearly forty years of service, she has worked with several respected establishments throughout Virginia but found none to compare to the level of compassion and commitment to family, as that of Peninsula Funeral Home. She became aware in her teenage years that she had a desire to serve families in funeral service and that desire has not wavered. She continues to bring a special level of professionalism and enthusiasm every day she is on the job. Mrs. Copeland’s faith is prevalent in the way she makes a compassionate difference in all those she works with. Ruth, her husband, Bobby, and son Will, reside in Newport News. Ruth and Bobby are members of Temple Baptist Church. Bobby has long been a part-time employee of Peninsula Funeral Home, and Will, a senior in high school, serves the funeral home on a part-time basis as well. The Copelands are proud to represent this distinguished family focused and family-owned institution.
