and Orville Ritzman were both born and raised in the Flathead Valley,
Grace in Polson, MT and Orville or "Snooks" as he was
called, in Kalispell, MT. They loved Montana, and were avid fishermen
They never had children of their own, but Grace, especially, had
a soft spot in her heart for little kids, specifically kids that
had to struggle through life, doing without things that they really
needed. That sense of caring has resulted in the Grace and Orville
Ritzman Children's Fund.
