We have such beautiful memories of Rita aka Aunt Dee. We started our friendship as two single girls at the dead end of Palmetto Road, we shoveled together, walked together, drank wine together and she loved and helped so much with my dog Koda. Then I married and had baby Ethan, Rita was a God sent, she helped, loved and laughed all things Ethan with Brian and I. Rita was always there for us. Christmas, Easter and summer days on our patio with the rest of our wonderful neighbor's. Aunt Ree had the most beautiful heart and soul, we cherish the love and memories we have. Rest peaceful and enjoy being with all your family in heaven. Love you always
Elaine, Brian and Ethan Dunford

All our love, Anthony and Jen

Dearest Joanie and family,
Paul and I were very sorry to hear of your moms passing. Please know that we would be there for you and the family if we all were not facing this Pandemic. Always enjoyed being in Aunt Rita's presence. I know my granddaughter has a blanket that she made for her. A cherished piece that will be kept. I wish circumstances could be better so that we all could be together for you and the family.
Know that we are keeping Aunt Rita in our prayers and thoughts.
Keep all those wonderful memories of your mom close to your heart.
Please know that when a memorial is set in place, we will be there. Joanie we are so so sorry for your loss.
With sincere love and sympathy,
Paul and Kim Daniels and family

To Rita's family, Bill and I are greatly saddened by the news of Rita's passing. I met Rita when she was in Marlene & Angelo's wedding party. She always had that beautiful smile. She was always there to lend a hand where needed and will be greatly missed.
