I am one of the CNA’s at the Regency of New Berlin. I took care of Rita multiple times and she was a joy to be around. I will definitely miss being there to help her get ready for bed at night and in the morning. Rest in Peace

Our deepest sympathy to all of Rita's children and families. We had the honor of meeting her when she came to Arizona to see Bob & Kathy. What a special lady, we were inspired to enjoy life, family & laughter! Beginning with the Martini in a crystal glass to exchanging letters over the years. We feel honored to have met many of her family members, each one as special as her. Rest in peace, Rita.

My deepest sympathy to all of you. I loved Rita. We walked the grief path together when Dick and Sandy died. We traveled to Italy, to Ireland, to Boston... so many memories! What a wonderful friend she was.
