Bell Thompson Ritchie (1893 - December 10, 1970)

Bell Thompson Ritchie (1893-1970) was a musician and vocalist. Reviewers praised her "full toned, resonant and powerful" voice, her "keen sense of dramatic", and her "unusual musical intelligence". Bell T. Ritchie moved to California in 1905 and lived in a studio home on Wilson Avenue, Fresno, CA 93704; the house was filled with antique furniture and Oriental rugs, which she collected. Her home was shared since 1936 by her friend, Nina Van Den Benden (b. 1895), a language teacher from The Hague, Holland. Ritchie is buried at Belmont Memorial Park, Fresno.
