Velia G Ritzer

March 5, 2018
Cape Coral Daily Breeze

Velia G Ritzer, age 91, of Cape Coral, FL joined her beloved husband and soulmate Fred J Ritzer in heaven on February 28, 2018. Their family and friends will forever treasure the example they showed us of what a beautiful marriage should be.

She will be dearly missed by her beloved niece, Lisa; daughter, Kathy; and grandsons, Neil (Amari) and Evan (Christine).

Velia was a Director of Sales and Marketing for Inter-Island Resorts in Hawaii at a time when few women achieved that level of accomplishment in the male dominated business world. Velia grew up in a musical household and never lost her love for music, she was a member of the Southwest Florida Symphony Society and greatly enjoyed the concerts. She enjoyed playing the piano and started lessons in her late 70s. If there was laughter in the room Velia was sure to be at the center of it. In her later years she took her show on the road and performed gigs at local events and clubs.

Her family and friends grew to treasure her infectious laughter and humorous storytelling and devotion to family which we will dearly miss. She always kept us on our toes with a wicked sense of humor and her attempt to teach us select words in Italian. Velia will be deeply missed by her family and friends but we will always treasure the love and laughter she brought into our lives.

A service was held at Trinity Lutheran Church in Cape Coral, FL.

Memorial contributions may be made in her honor to Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation and Glioblastoma Foundation. Info 239-334-4880.
