Alice May Ritter, age 90, died peacefully early Tuesday morning, January 1st at The Lakes of Monclova, while under the loving care of the staff from "The Lakes" and Hospice of Northwest Ohio.

Alice was born on June 22, 1928 in Toledo, OH to George and Clara (Westfall) Wilhelm. She attended Libby High School and upon graduation, worked in the office at Sealtest Dairy. On August 9, 1948, Alice married her husband, of 69 years, Carl Ritter.

Alice left Sealtest Dairy to dedicate her time and energy to being a stay-at-home mom. After her children had grown, she found a great deal of pleasure working at Kay Ceramics, the Cookie Lady at Southwyck Mall, The Paper Clip and Joanie's Hallmark store at Southland Shopping Center.

Alice was the ultimate 'people person'. She loved belonging and participating in activities and events that provided her an opportunity to express her love and care for others and receive the same in return. Alice was a member of the Triune Chapter #344 Order of the Eastern Star (OES) and was very active for more than 35 years. She held numerous offices within the organization, all of which held a great deal of importance to her.

Alice also loved her church deeply. She was baptized and married at St. Petri Lutheran, Toledo, OH and later joined St. Lucas Lutheran Church, also in Toledo. Alongside of her husband, Carl, she was a dedicated and active member for many, many years. She loved singing in the choir, working in the Thrift Shop and volunteering for numerous activities and events.

Alice's ultimate passion was her love for her three sons; Rich, Tom and Bob. She talked of each with such admiration and pride; smiling at the mention of their names and brimming with joy whenever they were in her presence.

Her boundless love for family and friends is Alice's hallmark and those privileged enough to share this with her are forever grateful. Alice was preceded in death by her loving and devoted husband, Carl and her parents. She is survived by her sons, Richard Ritter (Lyn), Thomas Ritter (Sue), and Robert Ritter (Lori); grandchildren, Amy Ritter, Nick Ritter, Melissa Warncke, Jennifer Ross, Theresa Ritter, Meghann Coci, Kathleen Coci; great grandchildren, Kaysie Gunn, Kyle Gunn, Zach Taft and Tyler Taft; sister Marie Sheets, brother Clarence Wilhelm (Barbara) and nieces and nephews.

The family will receive friends at The Bersticker-Scott funeral home 3453 Heatherdowns Blvd. at Byrne Rd., Friday, January 4th from 4 to 8 p.m. with a Triune Chapter #344 O.E.S. service at 7:30 p.m. Funeral Services will be held, Saturday, January 5th, at 10 a.m., at St. Lucas Lutheran Church, 745 Walbridge Ave, Toledo, OH. Interment will follow at Ottawa Hills Memorial Park Cemetery. Those wishing to make a donation in memory of Alice, may want to consider Hospice of Northwest Ohio or St. Lucas Lutheran Church.

Now and in the days ahead, may Jesus our God of comfort continue to hold you all in the palm of His hand as you celebrate and remember the life of Ms. Ritter.

'And He will raise you up on eagles' wings; bear you on the breath of dawn; make you to shine like the sun, and hold you in the palm of His hand'.

My sincere sympathy to each of you for your loss. Psalms 90:10 says that the usual life span is 70 or 80 years.  When man was created,  it was God's purpose that he would live forever.  Romans 5:12 explains why sickness and death occurs. His purpose has not changed.  He assures us that he will restore life to all who are in his memory right here on earth under the best conditions.

Revelation 21:3-5
John 5:28,29
Pslams 37:29
