Carol Margaret Ritchie (Mackie) died peacefully in her home on Wednesday June 19th, 2019 in Doylestown, Pa at the age of 75.

Carol was born on September 21st, 1943 in Jersey City, NJ to Helen and George Mackie.

Carol graduated from St. Dominic’s High School in 1961 and completed her bachelors degree in Communications at Ryder College in New Jersey. She worked for years through the Tri-state area as a sales executive for companies like Comcast and Dow Jones, and mentored many young men and women throughout her life.

In her retirement years she devoted her time in strong support of the democratic party, and worked in the Buck County area on both Clinton campaigns. Carol was an avid reader, with a strong desire to learn.

I’m sorry for your loss. I was a caregiver for carol last year and I was glad a got to know her before she passed. She really did care for me as well and loved playing tile rummy with her!
