Rita May Fordham Obituary
December 11, 1923 - October 14, 2017 Rita lived a happy, charmed life. She died peacefully at home surrounded by family. She was 93 and had just marked the 75th anniversary of her marriage to Ritchie Fordham, who passed away in 2008. Their marriage was a love-story for the ages. Rita had charm, humor and an active intellectual curiosity. Mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, aunt, cousin, teacher, bridge and folk-dance partner, friend and confidant. Everyone loved being in her company and returned her love equally. Rita is survived by her children, Jeanne Argoff, Cathy Murray, Bob Fordham and Jon Fordham; sons-in-law, David Argoff and Tom Murray; daughters-in law, Leslie Davis and Michele Mieloch; grandchildren, Gillian, Colin, Cory, Rosie and Jacob; and great-grandchildren, Josh, Rachel and Adira.
