Rita’s lifelong career as a hairstylist led to many friendships. She loved people and everyone who knew her also loved her. She was an angel on earth who has now received her wings.
She enjoyed spending her days at home on the river. Her favorite activities were spending time at the sandbar in Sebastian with friends and being surrounded by her family. She also loved the Bahamas and was looking forward to an upcoming trip.
