To Rita&s family & Friends,

Where to begin... Rita was such a joy to be around and had such a zest for life. She made those around her better people. Whether we were working at Kirby Risk or hanging out playing Bunko at another co-worker&s house, Rita was always there with a joke and a smile. She was an honest and loving woman who&s smile & laughter could light up a room. She will be greatly missed. My sincerest condolences for your loss and God&s blessing to you all.

With Love,
Julie Dwiggins

I am saddened to hear about Rita, but know that she is in a better place now with no sickness. I had the opportunity to work with this wonderful lady when I worked at Kirby Risk and she always had a smile on her face and a joke to tell. She was so much fun to be around!

I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Rita for many, many years at Jackson-Hewitt. It was a pleasure knowing her. We had lots of good laughs. She was a very sweet lady and I know you are going to miss her. She talked about her grandchilden all the time. I hadn&t seen Rita in quite a while and didn&t know she was not well. I will truley miss her smile and her laughter. Brenda
