Mary Jo Riddell

Mary Jo Riddell, 71, passed away Tuesday, April 10, 2018, at Baptist Health Lexington, surrounded by friends and caregivers. She was born in Lexington, Kentucky to Margaret and Ellis Riddell. Mary Jo is survived by her long-time boyfriend Phil Sanders, her roommates Norma and Angie, and a special friend, David Riggsby. Mary Jo was a friendly woman who was quick to ask others how they were doing. She greeted others with a willing smile and she was generous with hugs for those she cared about. She was a breast cancer survivor who enjoyed country music, cop shows, Family Feud, and Bonanza. On weekdays she loved attending Sunnyside where she got to spend time with Phil and visit with other friends and caregivers. Weekends were for rest and relaxation at home. Mary Jo was cared for by many, including her friends and caregivers at Independent Opportunities, Sunnyside, and Mary Jo leaves behind a host of close friends and caregivers, who consider her part of their family. Mary Jo was a shining example of how sharing a kind smile and showing that you care can impact others.
Mary Jo’s funeral services will be 12 Noon Monday, April 16, 2018 at the Milward Funeral Chapel on Broadway. Visitation will be from 11:00 AM until service time at the funeral home. Burial will follow in Hillcrest Cemetery. Friends and family may leave special memories or condolences on her tribute page at Ramsey-Young Funeral Home in charge of arrangements.
