Eva Marie Ritz Barnhill



Eva Marie Ritz Barnhill, 73, of Burgaw passed from her earthly life on Sunday, May 27, 2018 at her home.

She was born May 11, 1945 in York County, PA, the daughter of the late Raymond Ritz and Marian Spicer Ritz. Also remembered is her husband, Ronald “Ronnie” Barnhill; son, Mike King; and brother, George Edward Ritz, all who preceded Eva in death.

Eva leaves behind to cherish her memory her son, David King (Leona); daughters, Genie Jones (Todd) and Marsha Wood; grandchildren, Justin King, Joshua Jones, Jeremy Jones, Jayson Jones, Thaddeus Poore, Lydia Poore, Michael King, Victoria King and David Sliger; great granddaughters, Abigail King, Jayda King, Katty Sliger and Annabell Sliger; sisters, Joyce Nuttle (Denny) and Ruth Davis (Gary); brothers, Mark Ritz (Teresa), Dale Ritz (Janie), Terry Ritz (Helen) and Larry Ritz (Mary); and many nieces, nephews and friends.

Eva was a loving and devoted mother, grandmother, sister and friend. She found great joy in the simplest things, but her greatest joy in life was family. Eva had a great compassion for all of God’s creatures … great and small, especially her cat, Benjamin. Eva loved traveling and crocheting blankets for newborns in the nursery at N.H.R.M.C. She always extended a heart of love and sharing to others. Eva’s passing leaves an empty place in our heart, but we still have many wonderful memories.

There will be no services held at this time.
