Elaine E. Ritter, age 77, peacefully joined her Lord and Saviour on Sunday, June 20, 2021. Elaine graduated from West Philadelphia Catholic Girls High School in 1962.
Elaine was predeceased by her parents, brother, sister, and daughter Lynn Ann Ritter. Elaine is survived by husband of 52 years, Howard C. Ritter Jr., son Daniel, daughter-in-law Georgia, grandsons Cade and Clayton, many beloved nieces and nephews, and a host of friends.
Elaine, who had a strong belief in God, enjoyed “basement shopping”, entertaining, laughing, and children. She hosted crabbing events, summer pool celebrations, and many different reunions throughout the fall and winter seasons. At her annual Christmas party, children never left without a gift.
