died after a 13-year battle with breast cancer on Friday, May 8, 2009. She was 60 years old.
By day she was a healthcare attorney. She is survived by her husband Stafford, daughter Glynis, and sons Stafford and Tom.
She was well respected and admired in her local arts and theatre community. A respected member of International Centre for Women Playwrights, she gave considerable time to writing articles on playwriting for the ICWP Seasons Newsletter. Her articles as "The Play Doctor" where she answered queries from playwrights with problem scripts were especially appreciated.
It is with regret that I mention the life and achievements of Rebecca
Ritchie. As we all look toward remembrance in our life time, we should
never forget the calling on our lives--to do the very best we can do
for ourselves and the world. Rebecca will be remembered for her
achievements, but they are only a small portion of her life. The
remembrance is in the hearts and minds of those who wish to recall her
talents and gifts. Let us all think on our end result and work toward
our future. --Terri Febuary
