She is survived by her three children; Rodger Ritchie and longtime companion, MaryJo Lomier of Fresno, CA., Russell & Loena Ritchie of Nampa, ID., and Rhonda & Grover Dickinson of Clovis, CA., along with 5 grandchildren, and 11 great-grandchildren.
Margaret was taught her faith at an early age by her parents and learned to love and respect God. She was married to and greatly loved Arlanda Ritchie for 72 years. She took great joy having and raising her children. She also got great pleasure from working outside in their yard, which she learned from being raised on the family farm. She was full of energy and usually didn’t sit down until the end of the day. She had a can do spirit with a wonderful smile that usually led to a giggle or laugh about something. Margaret lived a full life as she loved and was loved by family, friends, and family pets.
