Mary Edith Ritchey

Graveside service for Mary Edith Carroll Ritchey is scheduled for 1:00 PM Friday, October 14, 2016 at Myrtle Springs Cemetery with Bob Chandler officiating.

Mary Edith Carroll Ritchey was born June 5, 1940 in Quitman to James Melvin Carroll and Edith Marie Bryant Carroll and passed away October 10, 2016 in Irving. She graduated from Irving High School in 1959 and married Grady Ray Ritchey on February 7, 1959.

She loved the summer, traveling, and talking about the different places the family went to. Her favorite TV shows were Dancing With The Stars and NCIS New Orleans. She loved her tablet and enjoyed reading books and playing games on it.

She would never admit it, but she enjoyed picking on Paul. She always had something to say about “his” westerns, but she would watch them. She even told Paul, “There was nothing on TV. I ended up having to watch that John Wayne movie McLintock!”

On Saturday mornings she and her family would watch Dr. Pol, Dog Whisperer, and Save the Shelter. On Sunday, Paul would ask “Are you ready for church?” and the family would watch church.

She loved watching football and would bet Ding Dongs on the first Dallas Cowboys game with Paul.

She had a big heart and was very compassionate. She spoiled her dogs and cat. Zoey and K.K. became her babies.

She is preceded in death by her parents and one brother, James Arvil Carroll.

She is survived by her daughter, Rhonda Harrington and husband Paul of Irving; son, Robert Ritchey and wife Paula of Haslet; five grandchildren, Natasha, Tommy, Lacey, Billy, and Megan; and ten great grandchildren.
