  • Notes 
    • Mary, 78, was called home to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ on February 12, 2013 after a long battle with cancer. While she would have loved to stay with us longer, she was at peace with God's plan.

      While growing up in Mount Holly, she met and fell in love with Johnny Ritch. They were married for 58 years. During those 58 years, Mary's main priority was her family. Other loves were bowling, sewing, and artwork through embroidery, painting and drawing where she blessed many with her talents. She was also an advocate for her community and was the driving force behind the formation of the Vigilante Grannies, a neighborhood watch group for Fairfield Plantation. She was instrumental in improving her neighborhood through her work on the HOA board. Her community efforts won her the "Making a Difference" Award in 2011.

      In addition to her husband Johnny, she is survived by her four children Carol Parrish and husband Bruce; Chip Ritch; Karen Cole and husband Todd; and Eric Ritch and wife Ashley. She had 10 grandchildren Amanda, Mary - Louise, Kristen, Benjamin, Brittany, Elliott, Gretchen, Michael, Dylan, Caleb and 5 great grandchildren. Mary will be greatly missed and deeply loved by all who knew her, making a difference in every life that crossed her path.
