Mitzi is survived by son Andrew Ritting and his wife Jan, son Mark, and daughter Robyn Todd and her husband Jim, and daughter Candace Ritting.
Mitzi always loved family and friend of which she had many, she was a long-time peninsula art league member, and we are thankful for her many paintings. She was a longtime volunteer at the Gig Harbor FISH food bank. She was active member in the homeowner’s association at Quiet Forest and made many friends there these last few years.
Mitzi valued her family and friends, loved to play cards, enjoyed the birds and flowers on her deck and shared her life and stories with all she met. She felt strongly about the importance of faith and the teachings of the bible. Mitzi was a loving wife, mother, grandmother and friend and she will be deeply missed.
