I am so very sorry to hear of the passing of Rita Jo. Please forgive me for not being at the rosary but I unfortunately just saw the obituary about 5 minutes ago. It is now 12:37am on Thursday morning. She will be sorely missed from all of us at the County that had the pleasure of knowing her and working with her. Know that she is now in heaven with the angels and resting in the arms of our Lord. May she rest in peace. My deepest sympathy to all of her family. Janice Hobbs, retired from Probate Court #1

Rita was a very beloved friend of my Aunt Therese Ramsey Rodriguez, who we lost tragically in November 2017. She was a friend to my mother, Barbara Bader as well. I have known Rita all of my life. She was funny, always made me laugh, and I know she loved Therese alot. I know Therese welcomed her to Heaven with arms wide open, they are together in Heaven, and I am glad they have each other up there.
I am so very sorry for your loss and send prayers and hugs to each of you.

When my husband and I got married at the courthouse, my Aunt Rita was so sweet and introduced us to all her coworkers, going from office to office telling everyone how happy she was for me and my new husband. I thought it was the sweetest how she always expressed how proud and happy she was for me and all her nieces and nephews. My Aunt Rita Jo was one of a kind.
