I got to know Rita in 2007 when I did an internship at Stegmeyer and Stegmeyer for my last semester of law school. Rita was always easy to talk to and had a hilarious sense of humor. I'm sorry for her loss and will say a prayer.

Rita Rita Rita.... I've only known her 11 months. I moved next door to her in January.. She was a very special lady and everyday I would wave and speak to her when she would sit outside with her 4 r 5 rollers in her hair lol... But it's such a small world cause I sat and talked to her for almost an hour and she asked where I'd worked.. i told her St Paul's Senior Community nursing home. She oh my, my sister worked there... I knew at that moment she didn't have to say who... Marlene Horn was one of my favorite nurses... that's how small the world is. You both will truly be missed. Prayers for your Family Ms. Rita.
