Please know I am thinking of all of you. I wish I could be at the services today, but my work schedule did not allow for a day off. I am also dealing with my mom who recently fell and broke her leg . She just returned home on Christmas. Now the hard part of rehab. Please keep my e-mail address and stay in touch. I would love to hear from you. My best memory of your parents is traveling around in that big blue station wagon, and always having room for one more! I will miss seeing your mom around the house when I return to B-town.

We just learned of Daisy's passing from Bob's sister Marne who lives in Pottstown and are so sorry. Although it's been many years since we moved from PA to Az and visited with you all, you have always been in our thoughts. So many good memories of being neighbors in the "half-a-double"! We last saw Daisy on our visit to Boyertown back in 2003 for Bob's Class Reunion but don't think she remembered us (and then later found out about her medical problems from Marne). If any of you you ever have an opportunity, please email us and let us know all about yourselves.

Gladys' energy, even at 90 years old, was an inspiration to all who knew her. She will be missed by all of us, expecially at Radiant Chapter Meetings, Order of Eastern Star, and where I came to know her. My sincere sympathy to her family.

It was a pleasure to have met and gotten to know Gladys. Although I've only know her a few short years I always enjoyed talking to her and listening to "her stories". She was always upfront about how she felt about things and I guess that's what I liked so much about her. I will miss her and my thoughts and prayers go out to her family.

She was such a lovely person and her life should have not been cut so short. She had so many dreams and a bright future. People say that God takes the best ones first. i guess that is the truth. Breanne was one of the best. Everybody can come together and get over this together. May God Bless you and my prayers are with you.<br />

I would like to say i'm very sorry for your loss. My daughter is a little younger than Breanne but she would see her at school and she said Breanne was her idol. My daughter told me that Breanne was a beautiful smart girl and she wanted to look and act just like her. She had a big impact on my daughter and it's sad to hear she was taken from you so soon.

Bertha Rickert Fritz, 81, loving mother

Bertha (Bert) Rickert Fritz, formerly of Pottstown, Pennsylvania, passed away on Thursday, December 10, at her home in Frederick, Maryland.   She was 81-years-old.  Bert fought a courageous 14-month battle with an aggressive form of melanoma.
Until the end, she never allowed this horrible disease to dampen her spirit for life, and the love she had for her family and many dear friends.

Bert was born on September 30, 1928, in Spring City, PA, by a mid-wife in her family home to her mother, Lavina Nonemaker Porter and father, Wilmer Hipple Porter.   She and her family subsequently moved to Pottstown where she later said that “she felt like she was in heaven,” because her new home had indoor plumbing. 

As a child, Bert and her late sister, Betty, used to enjoy winter nights in front of the radio listening to their favorite shows, “Jack Armstrong, the All-American Boy,” and “The Green Hornet.”  They had no television or telephone.  When the weather turned nice, Bert and her girlfriends played traditional games such as “jacks,” hop scotch, red light, and hide and seek.  The boys, she observed, preferred marbles.

Bert was a member of the Pottstown High School class of 1946.  She was 18-years-old when she married the late Harold (“Smokey”) Rickert at the Old Church in Valley Forge Park.  The newlyweds resided with her in-laws at the Rickert Homestead in Stowe, PA.  Bert and Smokey had three children, Thomas Rickert, age 60, Donna Rickert Hillman, age 59, and Jack Rickert, age 46.   The family enjoyed annual vacations to the Jersey Shore in Wildwood, NJ, with friends Lorraine and Roy Dentler and their children.

Bert was widowed young when Smokey Rickert tragically died of a heart attack in 1970 at age 45, while he was in Detroit performing Union business.   Despite the loss of her husband and bread-winner, Bert was able to make ends meet sufficiently so that her children were never left wanting for anything.

Bert worked for 20 years at Pottstown’s Sunnybrook Ballroom and Restaurant, which was then famous for hosting acts from the “Big Band” era.  Her pleasant demeanor and outrageous sense of humor made her a Sunnybrook favorite among her customers and co-workers. 

It was at Sunnybrook that she met her second husband, the late Larry Lee Fritz.  They were married in May 1996 and honeymooned at the Grand Old Opry in Nashville.  Sadly, Larry Lee Fritz died only three years later, thus making Bert a widow for the second time.

In a few years, Bert moved in with her youngest son’s family in Frederick, Maryland.  It was tough on her living away from the Pottstown area for the first time in 75 years, but she still managed to drive to Pottstown once a month to visit her old friends. 

As the cancer progressed, Bert’s many dear friends visited her on a daily basis.  She was energized by this fine company of friends. 

Bert Rickert Fritz is survived by her children, Thomas Rickert, Donna Rickert Hillman, and Jack Rickert; grandchildren, Craig Rhoads,  Lindsay Stufflet Daugherty, Rachel Rickert, David Rickert, and John Rickert; in-laws Marie Barna Rickert, Harold Hillman, and Jill Rickert.

The family will receive friends at their Frederick home from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. on Sunday, December 13th at 6474 Saddlebrook Lane, Frederick, MD. 

Funeral services will be held at the Cavalry Baptist Church in Pottstown, PA, on Wednesday December 16, 2009, 10:00AM with Pastor Jim Spears officiating. Family and friends may call on Wednesday from 9:30AM to 10:00AM at the church.

Memorial contributions may be made to the Hospice of Frederick County, 516 Trail Avenue, PO Box 1799, Frederick, MD 21702.

Marie Elena Bobby Letter

Dec-11 3:59pm

To Our Wondeful,Loving Neighbor June! Dear June, Little did we know that when we received your call a couple of weeks ago, it was to be the last time we would speak. I am sooo thankful for that phone call, June. It was, in hindsight, our chance to say "goodbye" and to be able to say how much we would miss each other. Also, one more opportunity to share with each other how much we loved being neighbors!! It was a pleasure to have you right next door for so many years - your sense of humor, your love of the outdoors AND THE HEAT! Which I couldn't relate to...ever ;) But, it was always enjoyable knowing that on those "dog days of summer" we could find you in the back yard sunning and always ready to share a laugh and a conversation! Our love of cats -- Bobby not so much at first!! And the whole Abby, Grizzy ordeal!! Those were some of the best days, when we were overrun with cat births!!;) Our phone calls - usually late night - were never disappointing! We would run the gamut and never without a few hardy belly laughs! Who will ever keep an eye out for us and our home ever again the way you did, whenever we were away?! You were the best! Never an unkind word spoken between us - just the best relationship any neighbors could ask for.....you will be missed more than we can even begin to express. Your attractive style -- your always perfect "never miss a hair appt with David" blonde hair!! Always so meticulous - even in the early mornings when I would appear on my deck looking like a bag lady!! ;) We could go on and on and share sooo many thoughts and stories, but the rest will remain in our hearts and in our memories of you, June! We wished so that the outcome of all you went through would have been many, many more healthy years lived right beside us on good old Franklin St, but that wasn't meant to be. Another loving person is gone from our lives way toooo soon! Be sure to look for my Daddy up there....I'm sure you two will keep everyone else in stitches! Rest in peace our dear friend, June.....it was a blessed day for the Letter family the day you moved into 124 South Franklin Street and we will never, ever forget you!<br /> We love you, June! Bobby & Marie Elena and Brittany & Tim (Grizabella, too!)

I was a student of Mr. Williamson, graduating in 1961. He was an advisor of our class, but not only that, he was a great teacher and friend to all. He always had time to say 'hello",. When talking to members of the class of l961, he was our favorite. I am not sure how it did it, but he never forgot your name, even after 20, 30, etc. years. I will always remember his. I send you my deepest sympathy.

Oh, Mr. Williamson! I have the family in my thoughts and prayers. What a remarkable man! I had the pleasure of having Mr. Williamson for typing and thanks to him and his humor, I have incredible typing skills. I have always remembered my class time with Mr. Williamson and have a picture from the last day of school 1993 when he retired. I remember his laughter and jokes. What a remarkable man and educator! Here's to you Mr. W!! To the family, what an amazing man! You are in my thoughts. Tanya (Mitchell) Shea Class of 1993

My condolences to the entire Williamson family. Palmer was one of my teachers at Spring-Ford High School back in the late 60s and he made learning fun. ... Through the years, I often ran into him at the school because of my job, and he was as sincere and thoughtful then as a friend as he was years earlier as a teacher. He was always quite generous in his compliments about my writing, too, and I took them to heart because of who he was. Greatly admired and respected him, and will miss him. God Bless!

MJ played the lead (twice) in my first play The Ghost Writer many years ago in Annapolis. Her generous and marvelously funny performance reflected her generous and marvelously funny self. I will always be grateful that she lent us her talents and her presence on and off the stage.

When I first moved to Annapolis, I took my daughter to Gymboree. I became part of a playgroup, and got to know MJ though that playgroup. Her friendship and sense of humor help this new mom relax and enjoy motherhood. She was a bright spirit in the world, and she will be missed.

Steve and I were so sorry to of your loss. We loved MJ and have so many fond memories of working with her on shows. One of our favorites was when Steve cast her in My Fair Lady! How she shined in that part! Our second favorite, was when she and Lex did You Can't Take It With You! What a cast! MJ could always make us laugh, and her talent will be missed. We wish we could have been there today, but we now live in the Poconos. Please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Affectionately, Nance & Steve

MJ and I shared a love of singing and many times when she came around the corner to relieve me on the switchboard we would have a great duet. She was a soprano and I am an alto! She would often say "Here she comes Miss Demeanor" her father used to call her that. We certainly had fun working together all those years. She will always be remembered for her voice and smile as well. I will never forget you born on 7 11.
