Rita was an especially lovely person who made everyone feel like family. She touched the lives of many children while teaching piano and the lives of many adults while holding Grief Support meetings at FUMC. She gave so much of herself to others with her volunteer work throughout the years. She will always be remembered as a kind, careing and loveing person
