Ritchie, Helen - Greenwich  
Ritchie, Helen E. Helen Elizabeth Margaret Ritchie (Robertson) born February 17, 1914 passed away at the age of 102 where she had been residing at the Port Chester Nursing and Rehab Centre. Prior to taking residence here she was proud to call Greenwich her home for over 60 years. Helen was born to Lillian and Jack Robertson in London, England where as a secretary at Life Magazine she met David Ritchie to whom she wed in 1937. Shortly after their marriage they moved to Greenwich to be close to NYC where David worked at the United Nations and Helen cared for her family. One of her greatest joys was her children. She was also fond of traveling especially as she was designated driver while David navigated and mapped their many travels. She was proud to say she drove all the way to California and throughout most of Europe, as well as having had the pleasure of a trip on the Queen Mary. She also had fond memories of Australia where she visited her brothers and got to know her extended family. Helen was an avid reader, which she passed on to her children, and in turn to her grandchildren. Aside from reading she loved doing the NY Times Sunday crossword, playing games of Scrabble, walking at Tod's Pt and ferry rides to Island Beach. She had a big heart for animals too and one of her pleasures was sneaking treats to the family dog when David was unaware. She was a kind hearted woman with a wonderful sense of humor and could manage a smile for anyone. She always said "I love people and people love me." Family was one of her greatest loves though and not long after retiring to Canada she and David moved back to Greenwich so that they could be closer to their grandchildren who were being born at the time. Helen is predeceased by her husband of 72 years in 2009 and her daughter Elizabeth (Ritchie) Payne in 2008. She is survived by her son Ronald J. Ritchie of Highland, NY and his wife Geri, as well as grandchildren Jeffrey Payne of Stamford, CT, Meredith Grant of Greenwich, CT (Doug) and Amanda Ritchie Gesualdi of Brooklyn, NY (Frank) and Trevor Ritchie of Rochester, NY. She was very proud to be a grandmother and would have been even more proud to know her great grandchildren Jackson, Christian and Keiran Grant and Maxwell and Gabriel Gesualdi. Aside from immediate family she has a good deal of relatives overseas in Australia and New Zealand that thought very highly of her and for whom she had a great affection, as she enjoyed writing letters to her niece Barbara Robertson and Geoffrey Ritchie. She also leaves behind family in Peru and California that were proud to know her. Family members near and far were a great source of happiness to her, as she was to them. Though we will miss her dearly we know how very fortunate we were to have had her in our lives for as long as we did. We would like to extend our gratitude to the staff at Port Chester Nursing and Rehab for their care over the last 9 years especially in her final days.
