Auntie Rita was a beautiful soul. She always made the best cookies and even though she told me her "secret" ingredient mine never come out quite the same as hers. I will miss hearing her laugh. So much love is being sent to her family during this difficult time.

My best wishes to her family. She will truly be missed by all.

I always loved spending time with Auntie. She was a remarkable woman. She was always the most kind, sweet loving woman who made the most amazing cookies! I remember running into Nana's kitchen whenever we heard Auntie's laugh, she would give us hugs and kisses and let us sneak a cookie.

Dear Bobby, Jimmy, Carol and Sandy, Aunt Rita was always so kind to all of us. I remember her warm smile and always making us feel welcome whenever we saw her. I think of you often and am so sorry for the loss of your dear mom.

Although I did not know Rita, personally; I have no doubt what a wonderful woman she must have been because she raised Robert, such a gentleman. When we were young, he was just a really nice kid and kind people like Robert helped me get through some challenges. Later years, when I saw him as an adult, working at the Pharmacy and saw what a true family man he became..... it was no surprise at all. I believe Rita had a lot to do with that and I am thankful for her and all the wonderful Mom's like her.
