Carlie Jo Ritchie found her peace on Sunday, Jan. 7, 2018.
Born on Sept. 12, 1988, she was the daughter of Dee Dee Ritchie and Wayne Douglas "Ralph" Ritchie.
She was preceded in death by maternal grandparents, Bill and Lou Davis and paternal grandfather Ralph Ritchie.
Carlie was a member of the Beall High School Class of 2006. She attended Westwood Technical School in Chicago where she studied interior design.
Surviving are her daughter, Ella Quynn, whom she loved very much; maternal grandmother Suzy and grandfather Pete Gibson; paternal grandmother, Marion Ritchie; and several aunts, uncles, cousins and very special friends.
Carlie loved life, especially her pride and joy, Ella. Her life ended too soon as she was trying to overcome many of her life's challenges.
She had a heart of gold and was beautiful inside and out and she was adored by her little Ella.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be sent to ACT 1st Federal Credit Union, 14316 National Hwy SW, La Vale, MD 21502, where it will be placed in a fund for Carlie's daughter, Ella.
A private service will be held by the family.
Words of comfort may be sent to the family following the obituary at www.durstfuneralhome.com.
