Obituary


Ella F. Riach

On February 28, 2011 the world lost our beloved mother, sister, grandmother and great-grandmother, Ella F. Riach. Born in Benerillo, New Mexico on August 16, 1926, Ella greeted death comfortably at home in the company of family after months of dealing with cancer.
During these last months she was assisted selflessly by her only daughter, Karen Bradford; as well as her granddaughters, Kelli, Adrian and Jill; her daughter-in-law, Jody Riach; her surviving sons, Ken, Bryan and Ron; and by the love and affection of her brother, Wallace; twelve grandchildren; and twelve great-grandchildren.
Ella was preceded in death by her husband, J. Gaylord Riach; and her oldest son, Greg.
She will be remembered at what would have been her 85th birthday at noon, Sunday, August 14 at her "Gazebo" on the 18th pond at Sun Country Golf Resort.
Although she loved the color and life flowers provide, we believe she would have favored contributions to the Providence Hospice of Snohomish County, 2731 Wetmore Avenue, Suite 500, Everett, WA 98201, to help others enjoy the kind and heartfelt care and guidance they provide.
