Robin Marie Purdy

October 17, 1985 — September 3, 2023



Robin Marie Purdy, age 37, of Sardinia, OH, went home to heaven, Sunday, September 3, 2023 after a year of living with colon cancer.  

She was born on October 17, 1985 in Georgetown, Ohio, to Andrew Mark and Sandra Kay (Ellis) Purdy, Sardinia, OH.

Robin was a 2004 graduate of Eastern High School, a 2008 graduate from Miami University in Oxford, and earned a Masters in Education from Ohio Dominican University in 2011.  A lifelong learner, in 2020, she also received her TESOL endorsement (Teaching English to Speakers of Other Languages). In 2019, Robin traveled to Morocco as a recipient of the Fulbright Teachers for Global Classrooms Scholarship. 

Outside of her passion for learning, Robin loved to read, write, dance, travel, and bask in the sunshine wherever she was. But more than anything else, she loved her family, friends, students, church, and community. She poured her heart and soul into those she knew and loved, and she was beloved by many.

In addition to her parents, Robin is survived by her husband, Ricardo Ullón and step-son, Gabriel Ullón, San Cristóbal, Ecuador; sister, Randal (Todd) McClimans, Milford, OH; brother, Rhett (Alisha) Purdy, Knoxville, TN; two beloved nephews, Vaughn Michael and Ward Martin McClimans; maternal grandmother, Mary Alice Ellis and paternal grandparents, Vaughn and Roberta Purdy, all of Sardinia; mother-in-law, Marina Ramirez, Perris, CA; and numerous aunts, uncles, cousins, friends, and students.

Robin was preceded in death by her maternal grandfather, Jimmy Ralph Ellis.
