Rosalie “Sammie” Riddle went to be with the Lord on Aug. 15 at the age of 88.
She was born and raised in Los Angeles.
Sammie had a great love for life and enjoyed traveling the world and taking trips in the trailer. But the greatest loves she had were for her family and her church.
Sammie was involved in many church ministries. Her favorites included intercessor, prayer partners, LEM, altar guild and her Love Ladies Bible study. Sammie wrote that she “loved all her St. Luke’s family and prayed for them.”
Sammie is survived by Fred, her beloved husband of 43 years, as well as her children Kathy and John, Trisha, Michael and Lisa, James and Diane, Paul and Jan, Nancy and Jeff; her grandchildren Phillip, Matthew and Amber, Jimmy and Carrie, Justin and Erin, Ashley, John, Christine, Ted, Mary Rose, and Sienna; great-grandchildren Christopher, Josh, and Andrew; and her sister Virginia.
Sammie’s last note to her family is, “Love you all so much, be good to each other.”
She will be missed by all.
In lieu of flowers, please make a charitable donation in her name to either St. Jude Children’s Hospital, www.stjude.org, or St Luke’s Anglican Church at stlukesanglican.org.
