Retta Vesely

It is with great regret that we announce the passing of Retta Vesely (Richardson). Born May 18,1936 in Port Angeles, Washington and passed away January 6, peacefully with her daughter and granddaughter by her side.

She was pre-deceased by her parents Robert and Dorothy, brother Robert. Retta is survived by her three children, Rob Ritter, Lori Grant and Cathy Ritter and their families. Retta was a loving mother, grandmother, aunt and great grandmother.

She was an awesome cook by all who would remember. Whether it was for family or crew, anyone who would have sampled her baking would never forget. She made the biggest and best cinnamon buns! She was an avid fisherman in her day and was never afraid to steer the boat to the next fishing hole. She loved to play classical music on her organ. Retta touched the hearts of many who knew her.

The family would like to thank the medical staff at the Cariboo Memorial Hospital for all their support in the past few months. She will be greatly missed by many.

A memorial will take place at a later date. For details please contact Rob or Lori.
