1950 – 2022
SPA is sad to announce the passing of Jennifer Ritchie.
We send our heartfelt condolences to Michael, Kellen, Taylor & Dom and their children.
Her obituary from the Globe and Mail is below.
Jennifer Ritchie, our lovely lady, wife, mother, and grandmother died suddenly but peacefully at Ross Memorial Hospital in Lindsay, Ontario on Wednesday, August 31, 2022, at the age of 72. Michael Barrett (husband), Taylor Michaud (daughter) and Dominique Michaud (son-in-law), were by her side when she passed. She adored and will be missed by her son, Kellen Barrett and her grandchildren, Louie and Frances Michaud. Jennifer was the life of every party and loved to dance and be merry. Her exuberance was infections to all who knew her. She loved her summers at Sturgeon Point, golfing, being on the water and spending time with her many friends. Otherwise, you could find her on the tennis courts at the Badminton and Racquet Club where she was equally loved. From a young age, she’s loved to travel, absorbing various cultures and history like a student. Since retiring, she was able to travel extensively with Michael and friends, living life to the fullest. Her sudden passing is heart breaking but our joyous memories will see us all through. In lieu of gifts, please feel free to donate to a charity close her Jennifer’s heart; March of Dimes Canada which empowers people with disabilities.
