Obituary for Theresa Ridge

Theresa Marie Sikorsky Ridge, 58, died on Tuesday, April 9th, 2013, after
courageously living with Glioblastoma multiforme for the past year. A resident
of Hershey, Theresa was the Executive Director of Budgeting, Insurance and
Benefits at the Home Office of Country Meadows. The strongest reflection of
Theresa was her love for her family, to whom she was endlessly devoted. Her
husband and best friend for 37 years, Peter Richard Ridge, and 28 year-old
loving daughter, Megan Ridge Morris, were her world. Born in Hershey, PA,
Theresa lived a bold and adventurous life that she shared freely with everyone
she met, whether here, or anywhere else she traveled around the globe. Theresa
was one of the founding members of The Hershey Area Playhouse, where her
evocative, thought-provoking lighting designs mesmerized, intrigued and inspired
community theatre patrons. She honed her theatrical skills not only at Hershey
High School, but while attending Point Park University in Pittsburgh, where she
majored in Theatre Arts. It was during her time in college that she also met
her husband, Peter, a native of Pittsburgh. Theresa enjoyed art as a healing
and transformative medium and dabbled in water color, stained glass and writing
throughout the years. Theresa's quick wit, sense of humor, vast knowledge of
different subjects, and fierce love of her family will always be remembered and
Survivors: In addition to her husband and daughter, Theresa is also survived by her devoted and loving mother, Lynn Boehler; sister, Deborah Schafer and brother-in-law, Ronald Schafer; brother, Thomas Sikorsky and sister-in-law,
Teresa Sikorsky; son–in-law, Christopher Morris; as well as her niece and nephew, Brandi and Scott Sikorsky.
Theresa is predeceased by her father, George Sikorsky. Too numerous to name are
the friends, artists and co-workers touched by Theresa to whom her family is
ever grateful for their support, encouragement, and love.
