Bulach, Sister Ritamary, 77, died peacefully on Sept. 8 at MVH after a short illness. She was born Dec. 1942 near Oxford, Ohio, and entered the Sisters of the Precious Blood Dayton, Ohio, January 1, 1961. For 59 years, she faithfully served God and His people. Private services will be held at Precious Blood Church, Dayton, Ohio, Thurs., Sept. 10, 2020.

Sister Ritamary grew up on a farm with her parents and 10 siblings. Even though they worked hard, living close to nature nourished her soul and fostered her call to religious life. As a Sister, she cared for others, sharing her skills in food service in Dayton at the Motherhouse and Maria Joseph Center, and at Maria Stein Retreat House. After retiring, she volunteered in Dayton at Grand Place, Maria Joseph Center, and Salem Heights. Prayer and work, a quieter monastic way, filled her days. Sister Ritamary joins her parents and 5 siblings in heaven. She is survived by her Precious Blood Community of Sisters, 5 siblings and many nieces and nephews. Her gentle spirit will be missed.

I teach an art class at Siena Woods and was fortunate to have Sister Ritamary as a student. She was the sweetest
person. The whole class just loved her. She was such a fan of nature and so enjoyed taking landscape photos that she used to make cards for those she loved. The class was so disappointed that she had to drop out a few years ago but she was never forgotten. Students always asked about her and said how much they missed her as did I.
She was one of the kindest, most pleasant people I have ever met. My sincere condolences to her family.

My sincerest sympathy to all who knew and loved Sr. Ritamary. Her presence on earth will be missed because of her quiet, humble, helpful ways. It was a privilege to be her friend and to learn so much from her gentle spirit. I totally believe that heaven has been blessed with the soul of another saint. I am sure that she heard the song "Veni, Sponsa, Christi, Come Bride of Christ" as she entered heaven's gates. She surely understood her vocation and lived it to the full. I rejoice at her glory and thank God for the witness she was to His Love. May we all try to emulate the virtues she lived so willingly. Former Classmate, Barbara Duda

I met Sr. Ritamary several years ago at the YMCA pool. We discussed a wide range of topics as we exercised in the warm water. When she had her cataracts fixed a few years back, she asked if I could keep in contact by email/phone . Our friendship grew as we stayed in touch, building on our shared interests ; jigsaw puzzles, baking and gardening. We often exchanged zucchini bread, muffins, and cookies (puzzles too). This past Spring she gave me a pear tomato plant she had started from seed, as well as a cute Teddy bear sunflower plant. We had already talked about when we would start our seeds next year. She told me she was ready to do Physical Therapy to regain her strength and mobility- she still had that determined spirit. But the Lord had His plans for her , His good and faithful servant for 59 years. He has welcomed her to her eternal home in heaven. She was a dear kind friend and I will miss seeing her in person and our nightly chats. May the Lord comfort you in the loss of your sister In Christ. God be with you, Debbie Maciupa
