Rita was a very special lady and was one of the strongest people you would ever meet! Her family always came first. She raised 2 children on her own while attending the University of Oklahoma in pursuit of her Masters Degree. She found her passion in hospice and mentoring social work students. She loved going to the lake, she had just purchased a lake house, and caught her first fish ever last summer. Her plan was to move to the lake house while she continued to work for Valir Hospice, doing what she loved. She will be greatly missed. John 14 Do not let your hearts be troubled. You believe in God: believe in me. My fathers house has many rooms; if that were not so, would I have told you that I an going there to prepare a place for you? And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come back and take you to be with me that you also may be where I am. You know the way to the place where I am going.
