The Daily Telegraph published a full and very generous obituary of Baroness Ritchie.
Though the Dame and the Baroness were sometimes at loggerheads the Dame was well aware that Lady Ritchie was quick to help residents in need.
Her compassionate nature really stands out in her dealings with Full of Life. Shireen Ritchie was adamant Full of Life should be allowed to stay where they were until suitable, alternative accommodation be found. Had she not so insisted there is no doubt others would have tried to displace Full of Life.
The children using Full of Life have much to be be grateful to Lady Ritchie for.
