Cynthia Ritter

December 25, 1965 ~ May 16, 2022 (age 56)


Cynthia “Cindy” Marie Ritter, 56, a resident of Jackson County, Mississippi for most of her life, joined the Lord
in heaven on May 16, 2022. Cindy battled many obstacles related to her health and ultimately, she won the
victory and gained her wings.

Cindy is preceded in death by her mother Hellon “Marie” Simmons, stepfather William C. Simmons, and
brother Johnny Johnson. The homecoming that they felt when she was reunited with them was sure to be
amazing to say the least.

Cindy is survived by her 4 children who love her dearly: Hetherr (Rashad) Benson of Fairfax, Virginia; Nathan
Ritter of Moss Point, Mississippi; Kaley (Dustin) Condreay of Moss Point, Mississippi; and Madison Lett of Moss
Point, Mississippi. She also has 8 wonderful grandchildren whom she loved dearly: Dasjah, Kegan, and Zoe
Benson; Jeremie, Braylin, Jayce, and Colt Condreay; and Cameron Ritter. Along with her children and
grandchildren she is also survived by her brothers Tommy (Vickie) Johnson and Ronnie Johnson, several
nieces, nephews, and friends that will cherish the beautiful memories that they share of Cindy.

Cindy was a caring and vibrant soul that cherished the little things in life. She never let a day pass where she
was not looking forward to a beautiful sunset and a good book. She enjoyed every aspect of the beach. She
also loved music, mostly 80’s, cheesy love songs, country and especially Michael Jackson despite her kids’
relentless teasing! She would just laugh in her distinctly boisterous way and continue humming and dancing
along, sometimes with two kids on her hips. Cindy had a way of taking something so ordinary and making you
see it through a different light, a new perspective. A simple puzzle and a diet coke would bring a smile to her
face and joy to her heart. Cindy loved the fictional creature Eeyore so much. Her quirky disposition of life left
her to question many aspects of Eeyore and brought comfort to her when she found answers like why he had
a pink bow on his tail. Cindy worked many long days as a welder and then as a planner at Ingalls Shipbuilding
in Pascagoula, Mississippi.

While the family mourns the loss of Cindy, they are elated in the fact that she knew Jesus as her personal Lord
and savior. They know that this period without her here on Earth will be filled with longing memories and
anticipation to see her again one day in heaven.

The Family will have a private celebration of life, where Cindy’s ashes will be spread across the beach as a final
reminder of the joy and peace that the beach brought her so many times in her life.
We are forever grateful to We Care Hospice facility for all of the hard work, care, comfort and support they
provided to her and the family in her final days.
