Elizabeth Mary Riccardi
April 27, 1921-April 18, 2013
Elizabeth Mary Riccardi passed away peacefully following a prayer of the Holy Rosary on Thursday, April 18, 2013.
Elizabeth was known fondly as ‘Betty’ and was the oldest daughter of four siblings. Betty was born in Sterling, Scotland, came to America at the age of four and grew up in New Jersey. She married the love of her life, Michael James Riccardi, who preceded her in death, as did her daughter Elaine Elizabeth Fisher.
In addition to being a devoted mother and grandmother, she was a skilled homemaker and an incredible cook. As a wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, she will be remembered as a loving, supportive, and nurturing person with a wonderful sense of humor. She always put her family first.
Betty is survived by her children Michael Riccardi (Judy), Richard Riccardi (Jania), Arlene Bouchard (Pete); 13 grandchildren; and many precious great- and great-great-grandchildren.
A Rosary Service for Betty will be held in Laguna Hills, CA on Sunday, April 21, 2013 with graveside services following the next morning.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the American Cancer Society in the name of Elizabeth Riccardi.
