A final peace reaches us all, the path to this peace is different for each one of us. The families that are left behind search for understanding, healing, and live in joyous memories. We held her hand until her last breath and hope her end was an escape from a life of pain. Terri was a tough woman. She loved her animals, her books, and she fought for every day in her life. Many adopted dogs, cats, and horses enjoyed a new life of caring and peace because of her love. Her mind did not give up but her body did. Terri Lynn Ritenour passed away on Monday October 22, 2018.
Terri was preceded in death by her father, Thomas J. Ritenour.
She is survived by her mother, Donna L. Ritenour, her brothers, Tom and Toby Ritenour, and one niece & 3 nephews.
We want to thank Sutter Home Health Care and the VNA of Monterey for their kindness and excellent care.
No services are scheduled at this time.
