May 5, 1935 - April 3, 2018
So very suddenly, our dear Mom, beloved friend to many, and Oma has left our Earth to collect her reward for the incredible, giving, loving life she lived.
“Ricky” as many people knew her, was an incredible source of energy, charity, and love who enjoyed dancing at the Eagles, Zumba classes, trips to the beach, and our many local lakes. She was involved with the Epsilon Sigma Alpha sorority and was a regular parishioner of Shepherd of the Valley Catholic Church. She also enjoyed writing and completed three books which many have enjoyed.
Her legacy is the warmth in the hearts of so many dear friends, and the indelible understanding of love, sense of duty, and purpose she gave to her two children, Astrid and Marcus; and her three grandchildren, Brady, Jennette, and Serina.
The family’s love and gratitude go out to all those who knew our Mom and Oma. We appreciate all the help and offerings of support.
Words cannot express the magnitude of the incredible life this proud lady lived, and the void left by her passing.
A brief graveside eulogy will be held Thursday, April 12, 2018 at 1 p.m. at Hillcrest Cemetery. A Celebration of Life will be held at her home on her birthday, May 5, 2018 from 5-7 p.m., to allow some time for all of our hearts to heal.
