Obituary

Ellen Clare Riker, age 80, of Virginia Beach, Virginia, passed away March 8, 2021. Ellen was born on September 5, 1940 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania to Charles and Margaret Haub.

Ellen worked as a registered nurse at Virginia Beach General Hospital and retired from there in 1998. She then worked part time at Chesapeake Regional Hospital where she retired completely at age 72.
Ellen was an adventurous woman with a strong will. She would do anything she could for her kids. Becoming a homeowner was a great accomplishment. Ellen was able to travel many parts of the world including Fiji, Australia, Alaska, Yellowstone National Park, Grand Canyon, New Zealand, Belize, Honduras, and Cozumel. She was very adventurous; she did hang gliding, flew in a two seater plane and went whale watching. She loved history, the mountains and fall foliage.

She loved her family. One of her greatest accomplishments was being a great-great-grandmother. She enjoyed going thrift shopping and volunteering her time to help her community in many ways. She volunteered at two local elementary schools and tutored children in reading. She volunteered weekly at the local SPCA in Virginia Beach. Ellen loved reading a good book and loved the Philadelphia Eagles.

Ellen’s family is a large one, consisting of: three fur babies: Grace, Stormy, and Boo Boy; siblings: Charles Haub, Margaret Mohr, and Sheila Haub; children: Margaret Ellen “Peggy” (Sammy) Fulgham, Richard Charles (Suzanne Elaine) Riker III, Robin Marie (Jon) Greene, Rhonda Ann Riker (Sean David) Crill; grandchildren: William Andrew (Lovlyn) Warf III, Justin Andrew (Bernadette) Warf, Ryan Charles Frasher, Lee Michael Murdock, Rachael Catherine Bew, Amanda Nicole Bew, Heather Mary-Grace Riker, Fiona Lily May Riker, Richard Hunter Riker, Gareth Gunner Riker, Michael Anthony (Morgan) Greene, Nikolaus Alexander Greene, Cristel Lee (Wayne Thomas) Anderson, and Dakota Grae Holloman; great-grandchildren: Ryley Madison Anderson, Xavier Michael Anderson, Jaide Esabela Anderson, Kingston Ty Anderson, William Andrew Warf IV, Levi Greene, Blake Greene, and Piper Greene; great-great-grandchildren: Lilliana Esabela Anderson and Natalie Clare Warf.

Ellen will always be remembered as a loving mother, sister, grandmother, and friend. The family will be having a private service.
