I only got a chance to meet Ms. Rita a couple of times, but I remember her being a warm, loving, and caring person who made me and my family feel welcome whenever we were in her presence. I got a chance to watch her play with one of her grandchildren at a company/site get together, and how she doted on that baby...family was important to her, friends were important to her, and I'll always be appreciative of the kindness she showed my family. I am so sorry for your loss and hope you find some comfort reflecting on how Ms. Rita touched so many with her genuine acts of kindness.

Rita was a kind soul who never met a stranger. My wife and I only met Rita a few years ago but quickly admired her kind spirit and loving devotion to her family. She will be deeply missed. The world lost a wonderful soul. Praying for peace for her family during this difficult time. God bless
