Our matriarch and pillar of strength Seretha “Rita” Bell;

Our matriarch and pillar of strength Seretha “Rita” Bell; lovingly known as “Ma Bell”, was peacefully called home in Seattle, Washington on September 2, 2022. She was born February 8, 1942, in Six, West Virginia. We will celebrate a job well done on October 6, 2022, at Three Tree Church in Burien, Washington.


To know her is the true meaning of a mother’s love. She walked this life with honesty, unselfishness, unchanging faith, and compassion. Her smile, her laugh, her heart, and hugs will be forever missed. She leaves to mourn her children (Thornton M. (Mitch) Bell Jr., Ronda L. Carter, and Donovan A. Bell), siblings, grandchildren, great grandchildren as well as a plethora of nieces, nephews, family, friends and loved ones.
