MATHEWS, Ricarda Eleanor - (1917 – 2020) - Passed away on October 12, 2020.
It is somewhat fitting that Ricarda’s life was bookended by the hardship of a global pandemic on either end.
Fitting because Ricarda was a beacon of joy, life and strength throughout her life. She always lit up the room with warmth and laughter.
She showed her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren just what it meant to be a strong woman. Nothing would get Ricarda down or hold her back.
Born in Ireland, Ricarda remained forever Irish with a lilt in her voice, a sparkle in her eye and a hint of mischief present always.
Predeceased by husband Henry, daughter Ricarda and son William. Survived by son Robert, grandchildren Rhonda, Jon and David and great grandchildren Talia, Trinity, Galileo, Lindsay, Jackson, Benjamin and Taylor.
