Catherine Ricker (Campbell), age 55, of Canal Winchester, Ohio, formerly of Norfolk, Virginia, passed away peacefully on Friday, May 15, 2020 at Mount Carmel East Hospital in Columbus, Ohio. She was born August 6, 1964 in Greenock, Scotland to Donald and Catherine (Buchanan) Campbell.
Catherine married David J. Ricker (Charles and Geraldine Ricker) of Elida, Ohio on February 14, 1992 at St. Ninian Church in Greenock. Catherine is survived by her husband, David and their two sons, Kyle and Dylan. One of her greatest joys was her role as mother to Kyle and Dylan.
Catherine was a loving, humorous and compassionate wife, mother, daughter, sister, aunt, great aunt and friend. Her beautiful gift of storytelling enriched us all and added much laughter to our lives. She loved caring for children and her love and advocacy for children will be her legacy. Most recently, Catherine was a pre-kindergarten teacher at Christ the King School in Norfolk, Virginia.
Catherine is also survived by her mother, mother-in-law, brothers, sisters, sisters-in-law, brothers-in-law, nieces, nephews and great nieces and nephews. Her sprit will live on in us and we will be grateful for her presence in our lives.
