      RITCH (Guglick), Dr. Elsie
      April 13, 1924 - May 17, 2015
      It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother, grandmother and great-grandmother on May 17, 2015 in Prince George. Elsie will be missed by everyone who knew her and remembered for her generosity and dedication to her family. Predeceased by her husband Joe Guglick. She is survived by her children Elizabeth, David, Michael and Mary Ann, seven grandchildren, five great-grandchildren and her faithful pet, Justin.
      Elsie graduated from St. Andrews University in 1946 and in 1951 immigrated to Canada from Scotland as a qualified obstetrician. She enlisted in the Canadian Army and in September 1952 was posted to Whitehorse. During her time with the Army, she re-qualified in anaesthesia and in 1957 received her Canadian and American Board certifications. She retired 30 years later as Head of Anaesthesiology at the old Grace Hospital.
      In retirement, Elsie was an avid equestrian and advocate for Pacific Spirit Park. She volunteered her time maintaining the UEL riding trails and was "Gardener Extraordinaire" at Southlands Riding Club.
      In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her name to the BC SPCA or to the Canadian Wildlife Federation.
      A Celebration of Elsie's Life will be held in August for family and dear friends. Special thanks to all the caregivers and doctors who took care of our mother with love and compassion. -
