Editha “Betty” Ritchey

Editha "Betty" Ritchey


March 15, 1922 – December 23, 2012

It is with great sadness

that we announce the

passing of Betty, at the

age of 90. She will be

lovingly remembered by

her son, Randy Ritchey,

and her daughter Sherry (Dennis) Husch. Also left

to mourn her passing are

her five grandchildren,

Naeomi Dawson, Ryan

(Marika) Husch, Rory (Jaime) Husch, Wyatt Husch, and Jeffrey Braun (Ritchey), eight great

grandchildren, Jacob, Jarryn and Hunter Dawson,

Mackenzie, Weston and Brooklyn Husch, Tasia and

Phoenyx Husch, as well as many nieces, nephews and friends. Predeceased by the love of her life husband Ron Ritchey in 2009, father and mother Rex and Editha Dolman and brother Tom Dolman. Betty was born in Rimbey,

Alberta, but lived 70 years of her life in BC. Betty was

married to Ron in 1946. They moved to Kelowna in 1954, and have resided here ever since, 50 of these years in the same house.  Betty’s happy, cheerful and friendly

personality endeared her to all that met her. Betty lived

a happy, full life with Ron, doing the things she loved,

traveling, camping, fishing, gardening ad spending

many happy hours with her family and friends. We are

all comforted with the thought that Betty is once again

with her dear RITCH, as she so lovingly called him. 

We miss you, and will always remember you,

dearest mom, gramma, great gramma, and friend. 

A memorial service will be held on Friday, January 11, 2013 at 1:00 pm at Springfield Funeral Home, 2020 Springfield Road, Kelowna. Should family and friends so desire,

donations may be made to the

Salvation Army or the Gospel Mission.
