Reita was one of my earliest Girl Scout mentors with San Gorgonio Council. I will be there to honor her memory. She always had a smile and was sure to give you a hug! She shared so much of herself with the Girl Scouting community.

Reita loved Girl Scouts in every way. She was also aware of the importance of keeping the history of Girl Scouts alive and well. She saved many things that told the history of the local and legacy councils which she has given back to the council for safe keeping in the archives. As we log in the materials,we can only bless and thank her for her farsightedness in remembering what is important and good about the Girl Scouting and it's history.
