You could always count on her hospitality whenever you stopped by. Rita loved gardening. Her vegetable garden and flower beds were always something to admire. She also enjoyed reading, painting, and always had a puzzle on the table. In her later years she really enjoyed getting together with “the ladies” for breakfast and lunch.
