I first met Rita when I was a young mom with two toddlers and she trained me on a mobile meal route. It immediately stuck me how kind and classy she was . I got to know her alot more at Sunday school. She was a lovely lady in every sense- wise, compassionate, encouraging and generous. Her Christian light shine towards others who had the pleasure of knowing her. I will greatly miss her. Praying for the family.
