Rieck, Edwina

Our precious mother, Edwina (Teddi) M. (Brownlee) Rieck, passed away on Wednesday, December 2, 2020. She is survived by her two children, Christopher Gard and Stephanie Rizzuti, five grandchildren and eight great-grandchildren. She loved animals, worked with Arabian horses and always had a dog by her side. Teddi never wanted to be the center of attention, so her services will be for family members only. Friends wishing to honor her are invited to leave comments and/or make a donation in her name to The Mr. Mo Project, a non-profit senior dog rescue.

    Grandma was always one to support and stand by your side. She was funny sweet loving and never turned down a hug or chance to make you smile. From dancing around to music innthe car with her grandchildren to sneaking them mt dew on days they stayed home from.school sick to fake sewing up a busted lip woth canker sores just to make you feel better she was the one. I’m gonna miss hearing her voice and seeing her smile. I love you grandma and can’t wait for our dance party when we see eachother again. I’ll keep practicing!

  2. My Grandma. She was always there for me. She would wait up at night for me to leave the club and she would talk to me the whole way home, just to make sure I was safe. She would call me at 0630 and talk to me until I got to work, just to be sure that I stayed awake. She loved me with her whole heart. She taught me how to ride horses. She supported me through competing against some of the best riders. She made sure that I had all the equipment I needed and that I was self sufficient in taking care of my horse. I will forever be grateful to her for teaching me about those loving creatures. I will miss you forever. See you later.

  3. Aunt Teddi,
    Even though we spent our years many miles apart and didn’t get to see each other much you always had a spot in your heart for me. The few times we got together we always had a great time. I will miss you!

    My mom always supported me when I needed it. She was my soccer coach & my cheerleader, and she drove me from Oklahoma to Colorado to drop me off for college. Mom listened when I needed to talk. She loved dogs, cats, and horses. She worked for a few different horse barns, feeding horses & mucking out stalls. Mom made friends wherever she worked. She was a tough lady with a big heart ❤️ My mom was Teddi and she was beautiful. I miss her every day.
