Obituary of Barbara E. Ritter

Barbara E. Ritter, our beloved mom, grandma, sister and aunt, lost her heroic battle with cancer on Wednesday, Sept. 14, 2016.

Barbara was born in Baker City, Oregon on Jan. 31, 1958 to Eugene and Lola Ritter. In 1967 the family moved to Grass Valley. Barbara, a graduate of Nevada Union High School, was a diligent worker at any endeavors she undertook. She had many friends whom she loved like family but Barbara’s greatest joys were her children and grandchildren. She loved her “babies”!

She is survived by her son Jesse Crawford; daughters, Courtney (Seth O’Dale) Crawford and Amy (Nick Evans) Crawford; her grandchildren, Bella, Sylis and Serenity; brother Steve (LaDonna)Ritter; sisters, Sue (Keith) Petersen, Kathy Beaver and Pam Ritter; and numerous nieces and nephews who miss their Aunt Barb greatly. A Celebration of Life was held with family and friends.
