During the last 3 years I spent valuable time with Marita as a caregiver. We shared our life stories and had lots of laughter and joy together. She was so loving and motherly, and I miss her a lot. Now she is soaring with the Angels and watching over us. I love you, Marita. Blessings, Cordula

Marita was such a wonderful God-fearing and loving woman who made us feel so welcome in her family when our son, Derek, married her granddaughter Corina. We just wish we could have known her all our lives. My consolation is that she is with her loving Lord now.

My prayers and sympathy go out to you Uncle Russell, Marsha, Ken and your families. Although I didn't get to see Aunt Marita very often, I have good memories of the times when I was able to spend time with her.
