Gladys Erna "Pat" (Schmidt) Ritter-Miller Obituary
"Pat" Gladys Erna (Schmidt) Ritter-Miller, age 87, passed away peacefully in Hospice House of Holland on February 22, 2014. An avid dancer, card player and seeker of fun, she resolutely and contentedly died in her sleep from heart failure.

Pat was born on January 25, 1927 in Groton, South Dakota, worked as a teletype operator in San Francisco and Chicago for Western Union, and lived most of her life in Reading, Michigan.

Celebrating Pat's life are her children, Michael Ritter (Karon) owner of Broad Street Downtown Market and Team One Food Store in Hillsdale with a home in Rockledge, Florida and Carmen Ritter Davis (Mark), retired school principal, living in Holland, Michigan. Brother, Gordon Schmidt of Bath, South Dakota also survives Pat.

Pat was a member of St. Paul's Lutheran Church of Hillsdale and appreciated their continued connection with cards. During her last four years of living independently at The Warm Friend in downtown Holland, she enjoyed the many cards and phone calls she received from friends and family. Her address book was like a journal tracking everyone's moves and changes.

Preceding her in death were her parents, two brothers, two sisters and two husbands, Rodney Ritter and Arnold Miller.

Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be planned at a later date in Hillsdale, Michigan.
