Obituary for Patty Diana Lovell (Ritter)

Patty Diana Ritter, 64, passed away on Saturday, September 29th, 2018 in Virginia Beach. Born on June 14th, 1954 in Virginia, she was the daughter of Gilbert and Shirley Ritter. Throughout her life, Patty held jobs as a hairdresser, nurse, and a security business owner.

Patty loved anything creative. She was a very talented artist and singer. She also spent her time fishing, playing Second Life, and watching reality tv shows such as Big Brother and Survivor. Patty was also fond of nature. She loved anything outdoors and would take spontaneous road trips to the mountains to take in the views. She also loved animals, especially puppies and pandas. Her greatest accomplishments, however, were her children, finishing nursing school, owning her own business, and being the one who always stood up for her friends and family.

Left to cherish her memory is: her partner of 20 years, Helen McKinstry; mother, Shirley Ritter; son, Nicky Ray Portwood; brothers, Robert Ritter and Gilbert (Connie) Ritter; and her six grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by: her father, Gilbert Ritter, Sr.; daughter, Rebecca Lynn Munter; and her sister, Sheila Adams.

The family will receive friends on Saturday, October 6th, 2018 from 12:00 pm to 1:00 pm at Family Choice Burials & Cremations 5401 Indian River Road Virginia Beach, VA 23464.
