    Our thoughts and prayers go out to my sister, Colleen, her partner Chris and the entire Ritchie family on the loss of your beloved “Nana”. It is apparent her beloved life touched all of you so deeply. May she rest in peace and in your hearts forever.

  • Marg and Joe Zarin says:

    Our deepest sympathy to the Ritchie Family in the passing of their beloved Eva. Eva was a very special lady. We spent many many nights having dinner and visiting. We could chat about anything, and did! I believe we had a very special relationship. Eva had a great sense of humor and always loved being with her many friends. She lived for her family and loved them all very much! When her great grandchildren were born she was so very proud. Eva lived her life to the fullest and had many wonderful trips with her husband and family. We were truly blessed to have known “Nana”. The Zarin Family will miss her, she was a true delight!

    Love from Marg, Joe and Family

  • Christine Domeij Sinclair says:

    Thank you for live streaming the service in honour of Eva. I wish I could have been there in person. Eva and Mom used to sit in the evenings and knit afghans and then donate them to homeless people. And Ramie’s was a special place for them. I can still imagine the two of them walking along when I pass by Old Orchard or the buildings where they lived. With much affection for Eva, our sincerest sympathies, from the Domeij and Sinclair families.
