Libby May Rittmeyer, 14, of Belleville, IL, born September 13, 2002, in Maryville, IL, died Friday, February 17, 2017, in Belleville, IL.

Libby's intellect and love of learning placed her in advanced classes. She was excited about taking honors classes in high school next year. Libby was passionate about animals and became a vegetarian to support her views. She stood steadfast in her convictions and allowed her compassion to guide her decisions. Libby had a shining spirit that brought light to all she did and to everyone around her. She was taken too soon and will always be in our thoughts.
