On January 26th, 2021, Reida Richards went home to be with the Lord after a long illness. She died at her home with her family at her side. She was the daughter of Harry and Bea Crum, and was predeceased by her husband Earl Richards Jr., her brother William Crum and his wife Marilyn. She leaves behind her six children, E. Wendy Perez (David), Gwyneth Leigh Mull, Earl Wm. Richards III (Chong Cha), Reida Gail Zulegar (Ron), Blyth Alayne Kifer (Barry), Heather Megan Richards (James Ladner), her brother Douglas Crum (Faye), 23 grandchildren and 13 great grandchildren, among other relatives.
Reida grew up in Patterson NJ and graduated from Central High School. She worked in a corner store selling ice cream and candy. She soon met her husband while roller skating with her skating club. They were married for more than 50 years. They moved south to Lakewood NJ and then settled in Willingboro, where they raised their children. Reida worked as a Certified Nurses Aid at the Evergreens Nursing Home in Moorestown for 25 years. She was a Deacon at the Willingboro Presbyterian Church, where she remained a member until her passing. She enjoyed being a Girl Scout Leader, Bowling, Traveling, watching Game Shows, Crocheting and spending time with her family. She was a loving, caring person and will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
