Margrethe Riker

December 30, 1931 ~ January 31, 2021 (age 89)


On Sunday, January 31, Margrethe (Grethe) Riker passed away at home after a long illness. She brought so much joy, wisdom and love to all. She was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother. She adored her Shitzu, “Skye”, who brought her so many years of wonderful companionship. She had an easy going nature and gentle soul and never complained (even when life handed her a few lemons).  She was selfless, always interested in others more than her own interests. She was a fantastic artist with a terrific eye and just brilliant in her knowledge of just about any subject matter right to the end.  She is survived by her beloved son, Scott Riker and his wife Donna. Also survived by her loyal "adoptive" son, Michael Carberry and his wife Val and daughter Kaitlyn . Also her grandchildren Craig, Robbie, ,Eva, Lindsay, Kyle, and her devoted youngest granddaughter Hayley. Grethe was predeceased by her husband Ed and son Craig. We will miss her inquisitive mind and gentle nature. Buriel is private and donations can be made in her name to Tomorrow’s Children Fund, Hackensack, NJ
