Auntie Rita was a warm, sweet and funny person. Even though we lived in different cities we were lucky enough to have a close relationship with her. She took such pleasure in knowing about the accomplishments of both Lois and me and of our children, her great niece and nephews. We always had fun phone calls together and when she came to Montreal it was a special treat. Auntie Rita loved life and was proud of her associations with many social groups where she played prominent roles. She will be missed but will always remain in our hearts. Our deepest condolences go out to Cousins Jeffrey and Marla and of course to Blossom, her beloved sister. Baruch Dayan Emet.
